Nativity Ornaments

To make the ornaments, you will need: heavy paper, glue, scissors, crayons or markers, and paper clips.

  1. Glue this page to heavy paper and let the glue dry.

  2. Cut out the ornaments and punch a hole in each small circle.

  3. On the back of each ornament, draw your own picture of the same event or of a modern Christmas decoration.

  4. Bend a paper clip into a hanger and hook one end through the hole.

  5. In a family home evening, you and a parent can read aloud “The Savior’s Birth” (page 30). As you read, family members can take turns hanging the ornaments on your Christmas tree.
