Growing up I was told by my teachers that you should be focusing on prayer and not be doing other things while praying, but as an adult, I find that even my kids pray better in motion. My kids, mainly my oldest son, wants to walk while praying the Rosary! So maybe it\’s a genetic thing in my family or maybe it\’s just because God made us all different, but it works for me!
Well, that may have been a bit of a personal tangent, but I was thinking about it as I made the craft that I\’m about to share. While making this art project sample for my kids, I began to realize why I enjoy creating things and I was having a splendid time meditating on the birth of Jesus!
- colored/construction paper
black, white, light blue, brown,
green, yellow, and if possible:
dark blue, red
Amazon has all these colors in one pack
and it\’s a really good price! ($1.39 for 50! – Ya, I like cheap!)
- glue (If possible both white glue and a glue stick)
- 3 popsicle sticks or other sticks to make a trim for stable
(You can buy the popsicle sticks at the dollar store 100/per pack but if you need a lot Amazon has 1,000 for $5)
