Last night's advent was perfect for helping them practice using toys in a story-telling fashion. Tonight they put the Little People Nativity Set up on the table and acted out the story of Christ birth. They also had a lot of fun making up stories with the animals. I love helping them learn the art of story telling through toys, through words, through song and art - any way they can practice it! Here are a few shots from their nativity adventure.
|I'm sure the safety guide would recommend that you do not put the manger on top of another manger. It seems like a safety risk. Apparently Mary and Joseph did not know better.|
|I also loved the positioning of the animals. We had 3 baskets of food for them all to crowd around. One of the camels and one of the donkeys decided that they needed a little nuzzling.|
Have you used the Christmas story to help your children practice or learn story telling? How have you done this with your children?
