Summary

Summary

29 craft projects that are simple to make, yet offer spectacular results to the young child. Each craft is based on an aspect of the Christmas story. Activities include an Angel Advent Calendar, a Joy to the World card holder, a Camel Gift Bag, a Three Kings Banner, a Christmas Memory Book, and a Thank You Note to God. The emphasis is on the religious aspect on Christmas -- no Santas or reindeer or elves or candy canes

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-A collection of 28 crafts for families to make while focusing on the story of Jesus's birth and the Christian spirit of the holiday. Several of the projects are ornaments or household decorations. Some can be given as gifts while others will simply serve as reminders of the real meaning of the season ("Glow-in-the-Dark Prayer Reminder," "Prayer Necklace," "Thank-You Note to God"). The materials lists and the instructions are illustrated in color and are clear and simple enough to be done independently by upper-elementary-grade children. Although a number of the projects are uninspired, there are a few ("Spoon Puppets," the "Three Kings Banner" that uses neckties for the kings' bodies) that offer youngsters a chance to use their imaginations. Sunday-school teachers and families looking for a religious focus for the holiday will find some worthwhile activities here.-G. C. (c) Copyright 2010.
