Jesus calms the storm

Simple craft relating to the story of Jesus calming the storm. The sea is only stuck on the sides so that the boat can rock in the storm! The fold on the top allows the storm to STOP!

"The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!"He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm." Matthew 8:25-26

Advent Calendar

Helen over at It's All Fiddle Fart inspired me with her Tiny House Advent Calendar to create this Nativity Calendar. Turned out great I think and could be a simple craft for kids. I used lolly sicks fro the stable, cut with scissors. The chalk board is actually the partitions from HMV dvd displays, they gave away a while back (you could use plastic file folder cut up in a dark colour, they work well with chalk). The star at the bottom is a simple wooden decoration bought in decoration sale last yr (Tesco I think) I'm sure you will find lots in near future, if not use card. If writing on card remember to test the pen ink doesn't spread too far.

"For the Christ-child who comes is the Master of all; No palace too great, no cottage too small." Phillips Brooks
