This is a fabulous DIY project to do with your kiddos and it doesn’t require a kiln…simply air dry this and after it’s dry you can paint it.
I love nativity scenes and believe it’s important to have at least one in your home at Christmas time. I have mine set up every year for my kids and grand kids to see so they won’t forget the true meaning of Christmas. This is why I think this is a wonderful thing to do with children.
I made one of these with my grandchildren and we had such an enjoyable day making these. They actually did really good with painting them too! I was rather pleased to see what they did! Kids are priceless!
My favorite nativity scenes are the simple ones like this one. The more simple they are, the more fond I am of them! I just tend to love things that look like children made them.
There’s all kinds of clays that you can make this with….I even saw on Pinterest where someone used salt dough. I never caught what kind of clay this gal in the tutorial used. This is why I’m making some suggestions on what to use.
