Jesus goes to the Festival of Trees (Thanks to Grace Preschoolers)!

A fun event here in the Quad-Cities is our Festival of Trees. Everybody looks forward to it … but not everybody creates a tree. We Grace Preschoolers did, though!!

We glued popsicle sticks into triangles to make the ornaments. Some were painted and sequined to look like Christmas trees. Some were painted and decorated with wiggly eyes and red buttons to become Rudolf the Reindeer. We loved those!

But the most important ones were the simple mangers. We colored pictures of the Baby Jesus and glued them in place. We talked about the Baby as we colored and glued his picture onto the simple manger. We know we will soon be celebrating the most wonderful event ever in the history of the world!

The kids love contributing to the festival, and representing the real reason it exists. If you’re in town, go see it. It’s in the children’s trees section. Let us know what you think!!
