Color Your Own 3D Nativities
Great Sunday School craft
These look better than the picture shows. The description says "paper", but they are not plain paper, but rather nice, sturdy cardstock. The children should be able to keep them and set them up each year.
I think they will be too difficult for our preK/K class, but the 1st-5th graders are going to love them- more than just coloring or putting stickers in place, they will have a 3D display and they can arrange and rearrange the pieces as they like. The outside (back) of the stable is also printed, a nice quality touch.
It's best to check all the packages when you get them. Each set comes individually packed in a plastic bag, and then those 12 bags are in another bag. One of the packs had 2 cows and no sheep- easy enough to make a replacement myself, but a pain to have to open and check all the packages. The stable pieces in some of the bags were folded over and will need flattening.
Still, the quality of the paper, the printing, the faces on the characters, and the 3D design make this a wonderful craft.

wonderful christmas gift for students, amazing price!
I bought this for my 31 classmates in a Catholic School, and for my 10 religious ed. students. It's just adorable and fun for the kids to color and assemble themselves. Teachers are always looking for an affordable and yet usable gift for their students. I know that the children (2nd grade) will cherish this for years to come.

I purchased these to use in our children's church for Christmas. We are using the craft for 3rd-5th grade students, and it seems to be well received. Each week the students get a new character to decorate and take home. Some of the older boys are not into it, but most of the kids like it. The quality is good for the price. When assembling the stable with the roof, it is a little awkard, and i had a difficult time figuring out exaclty how it is supposed to go together. I would reccomend this product for preschool kids through elementary kids. Even if the youngest kids can't put all the pieces together themselves, they can take it home and have their family help them.
