“I made this in Primary last year!” said Joel.

“This was on our first Christmas tree,” Daddy said. “It’s like the star the Wise Men followed.”

Make Your Own Ornament!

Here’s an ornament you can make with your family.

Child: Color the picture of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus.

Mommy or Daddy: Glue this page to heavy paper and cut out the pieces. Then cut the doors open and glue the picture behind the doors. Read Luke 2:8–16 together.

“And [the shepherds] came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger” (Luke 2:16).
