Nativity "Joy" Door Hanger Craft Kit
Nursing Home Treats
Wow! Lot's of parts. Be sure you have a lot of time to complete. My kids enjoyed putting them together, but it was taking so long that I finished them with a glue gun.

Adorable. Know the kids and parents will love it.
While this is an adorable craft, I wish that OTC would have used one printed foam piece for each Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus rather than have Mary and Joseph consist of four pieces and two pieces of Baby Jesus that have to be glued together. It would be cuter and much easier if each character was printed on its own foam piece as they do for some other craft kits. As it is, we have to pre-assemble Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus for the younger students. :(

Okay, but not great
I bought this for my child's class at school. I decided to make one of the crafts prior to having the children do it. Good thing, because I learned what to do and what not to do.
First, I chose to use a glue stick. Worked fine.
Secondly, Mary's face looks quite large compared to Joseph's. It's the way they use a beard to cover most of Joseph's face - he looks normal, she doesn't.
In addition, I chose to leave off the jingle bells. I have no idea how you can attach those unless you invest in the glue dots.
It took me about half-an-hour to assemble the craft. That's with kids running around and life happening, so give or take a few minutes!
