Looking for ideas on how to focus on the birth of Christ this Christmas? Adults and children alike will enjoy visual reminders of our Savior.
* Use nativities throughout the house. Place them in children’s bedrooms and playrooms too. Purchasing nativities can be as affordable as your decorating taste. A dollar store is a good place to purchase a variety of small to medium sizes. Homemade nativities are beautiful and will become heirlooms. My personal favorite is one my now fourteen-year-old son made in Sunday school when he was five. Made from toilet paper cardboard, it graces the top of my curio in the dining room every year.
* Next to the traditional gingerbread house, make a gingerbread nativity.
For young children use pint -size milk containers and on glue graham crackers to create a stable. For larger projects, use gingerbread and royal icing.

* For outside flags, purchase one focused on the reason for the season. Christian Book Distributors has a wonderful selection of flags in various sizes.
