The assembly of these goodies is fairly easy to allow older children to do it themselves. For the younger children, they may need help with cutting and tying. 

All the children may have to be reminded to save some toys and candies for the actual goody bags, I know mine will be digging into those first. 

  • Cut out the “You Light Up My Life” Valentines from the printable.

Suggestions For Some Customization Of Your Light Up Valentines

You can use glitter glue to add each child’s name to the card. First, use a pencil to lightly write out their name. Then trace it with glow in the dark glitter glue. 

If you find some glow in the dark letters, you can use those to add each child’s name to the card. Use a pencil to lightly mark where to place the letters.

You can outline the stars on the front of the cards with glow in the dark glitter glue too.

Rock Nativity Scene Craft

Semi-Natural Rock Nativity Scene

This rock nativity scene is semi-natural, you can go on a nature hunt for the materials.

This Rock Nativity Scene activity is simple so kids can grab the container of supplies and do the craft by themselves.

You can purchase the materials as well, that is up to you on types of materials to use. 

*  The only part the kids need help with is the hot glue part, a grown-up should be using and doing the hot glue part unless the child is old enough to do it while being supervised.

When I told Jehzel about this craft he was really excited to get started! 

Before you get started, be sure you have all the supplies first. I recommend putting all supplies into a plastic shoe box sized container for when you are ready to make your Rock Nativity Scene.

Make it into a group activity with your friends, have a parent grab some supplies in larger quantities first here:

Materials For Rock Nativity Scene:

  1. Large flat rocks
  2. Small pebbles
  3. Twigs of different lengths that snap easily
  4. Hot glue gun
  5. Burlap covered canvas
  6. Floral moss
  7. Star shaped confetti

Instructions To Assemble Rock Nativity Scene:

  • Begin by laying out twigs in the shape of a stable on the front of the burlap wrapped canvas. Make the stable large enough to hold all of the nativity characters you plan to include on your canvas. You can view the photo as an idea of the basic shape you need to create.
  • Glue the twigs into place with a hot glue gun once you have them arranged where you would like them to be.

  • Place a thin layer of hot glue along the twigs that form the stable and press some floral moss into it. Tap off the excess moss gently and allow the glue to dry and harden.
