Observe Advent by making this peaceful holiday crèche. Your family will treasure this hand-made nativity scene for years.
Look at Christmas cards, paintings from the early Renaissance, and contemporary carvings to find images of nativity scenes from various cultures and times. A traditional Christmas crèche depicts Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus in a barn or stable. Shepherds and barnyard animals look on. Wise men and angels are shown in adoring positions. A star is often in the sky.

Use a large portion of a file folder to create a stable roof. On one side of the folder, draw lines for boards with Crayola Multicultural Markers. Draw wood-grain patterns using Crayola Washable Super Tips Fine Line Markers. Fill spaces with brown Crayola Washable Marker.

Glue the bottom of the roof to the back edge of a shoe-box lid. Cut file-folder strips and connect them to the front of the roof. Glue these strips to the front sides of the box to support the roof.
