Baby Jesus Crafts and Ideas

“For unto us a child is born…” Isaiah 9:6

Yesterday we were driving down the street and the Happy Buddy was in the backseat reading this book…

On the last page of the book there is a sweet little picture of Baby Jesus.

When the Happy Buddy turned to that page he pointed to the image and shouted, “MOMMY!ย  It’s Baby Jesus!”

Then he added, “Aww… He’s so cute.”


Celebrating Jesus’ birth is the best part about Christmas.

Maybe one of these ‘cute’ little Baby Jesus crafts and ideas will bless your Happy Home this month.

I think this Baby Jesus Craft will make the perfect activity for the Happy Buddy’s preschool class Christmas party!

A wooden spoon wrapped in gauze (Baby Jesus) and placed in a ‘manger’ (a Ziplock baggie stuffed with crinkly brown filler).

I especially like the Bible verse from Luke that was included in the bag.

One of the preschool teachers at the Happy Buddy’s school had her class make a bunch of these ‘J’ is for Jesus Candy Canes!

Your Happy Buddies will love painting the ‘J’ with red stripes.

This site has all the instructions for the craft and this post has a sweet printable tag to use with the craft.

Then there’s this fun Baby Jesus Snack from Hubbard’s Cupboard.

And, finally, I found the most precious Christmas Tradition over at Tennessee Farm Girl.

Her Happy Home celebrates Jesus’ birth all December long with The Tradition of the Straws.

You MUST go read about this tradition – it will help your Happy Buddies remember that Christmas is more about the giving, than the getting.

Happy Baby Jesus Craft-ing! :-)
