I’ve had an idea!
It’s an idea for our family’s Christmas preparations through December!
Now that we’ve moved house we have a front room with a nosy window. You know the kind; it’s perfect for watching people as they walk past and they like to watch us too!
I want to make the most of this space and create a nativity window display which changes each week. It will be fun to get the kids involved and we’ll tell the story together through December. But it will also be lovely to create a space that invites people to look, to pause, to wonder.
So this week Dave and I are busily making wooden figures and on Sunday we’ll put week one’s story up.
I’m really excited about this and hope it becomes a special part of our Christmas. I also hope it makes passers-by smile and maybe prompt some thought or conversation. I absolutely acknowledge that this idea is more about entertaining me than teaching the kids, but I tend to find that the things I’m excited about become the things I want to share – I’m much more likely to chat to the kids about this!
Please join in with this if you would like to! Either use a space that others can see like we’re doing, or use a small nativity set in your home for your children to enjoy. I’ll share the story we’re doing each week on this blog, so come back here for updates!
If you want some other ideas, or want a really easy nativity set that you can make yourself please download the Nativity resource here. Please let other people know about this resource if it would encourage them. It’s a free download and has been very popular!
