Stations of the Crib
"Stations of the Crib" in Catholic Digest. I went back through my torn out articles and found the one I was searching for! I thought it was a great idea for my boys and I to use this Advent. Even better, I had some ideas I wanted to incorporate into the "Stations of the Crib" Idea!
First I looked in my NAB Catholic Bible for some scripture references and then I decided to give it a go creating some visual "stations" as we do during Lent.
I used popsicle sticks to create grottos to house my coloring page pictures. Using brown paint, I gave them a little color and made them look more like the manger scenes that are so popular.
I saved the coloring pages to my computer and printed them as 3x5 pictures or 6 to a page. I also traced the inside of my grottos onto red cardstock and cut them out.
First Station: Mary says "YES"- Luke 1:26-38
Second Station: A Trip to Bethlehem- Luke 2:1-5
Third Station: No Room at the Inn- Luke 2:6-7
Fourth Station: Angels Sing to the Shepherds- Luke 2:8-14
Fifth Station: Shepherds Visit Jesus- Luke 2:15-20
Sixth Station: The Wise Men Find Jesus- Matthew 2:1-12
