stART ~ The Christmas Story


Welcome to stART!  I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures somewhere in your post by either adding my button or a text link, so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week.  Be sure to stop by and visit the different links…every week there are so many different and fun book and craft ideas!

Check out the  stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects.  All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.  I have also included a list of all the blogs that participate in stART.  **This is a work in progress so if you have participated and would like to be added to the list, leave me a comment and let me know.

imageThis week we have been talking a lot about Christmas.  Emily is very excited to be in the Christmas Pageant both at her school and at our church.  We have especially enjoyed The Christmas Story, retold by Jane Werner Watson.  This Little Golden Book has beautiful illustrations by Eloise Wilkon that help the story come to life.

I was thinking about a project to do for this book, when Emily came home with this perfect one from school.  I liked it so much that I want to do it with the children in my Sunday School class.

IMG_1120I ordered the Nativity Stickers from oriental trading back in October and was just going to have the kids put them on a piece of construction paper, but I loved the idea of using the plastic plate.  Emily loved it because it was something different than we would normally use she couldn’t wait to find a place to hang it when she got home from school.

There are more than 25 stickers so this could also be a fun Advent activity, where you add a different sticker to the picture each night.  Maybe next year :)

Now it is your turn!! Click below to link up a book you read and the project or activity that you did to go with it.

I agree! The paper plate makes it special! Very cute. I'll have to find those stickers. They could be useful for a lot of things!!

Love the idea of putting the stickers on the and easy!

The link I added technically isn't stART because it wasn't a typical read a book then do the activity...but I thought people insterestd in stART might like the book ornaments...and there are lots of great books suggestions in the pictures. Hope that's okay.

We have nativity stickers but I've been putting off using them on paper because I didn't want to end up throwing the creation away. I like your plate idea! It does make it special.

The paper plates make it so much fun! I've been so busy I've forgotten to link up, but I think I meant to link up yesterday's post!

It's been way too crazy, why is December so crazy?
