Need a holiday traveling project for the kids? Here is a travel size Paper City Nativity Scene! The tiny pieces turned out rather cute, and it’s also quite convenient being able to print everything on one sheet of paper. Especially great for large groups of kids.

And after they’re done building it, you can stow the whole scene inside a mint tin for the road if you’d like!

Happy traveling everyone!

If you enjoy an activity and would like to support my continuing effort in creating art projects for our kids at home and in schools around the world, a PayPal tip donation would be awesome.

    This is great! I’m making a set for each of my two kids for church! We’ll see if it helps keep them quiet…

    Listening to DJ Doublejoint and dancing with my wife and three year old. Still listen to that Christmas CD every year. Also thanks for your sister’s CD’s. Take Care.

    Hi, Joel, it is exciting to have found your blog, you have so many great ideas for kids. They are beautiful, I can see your kids are thrilled with all the toys you design, made for them, and most of all, you play with them. It is a blessing that you have twin babies that they can play and grow together.
    You are a blessing to many families, parents and churches. Every month,I do craft with grade one kids to grade four kids from our church. It used to have 40 some children, now some of them grow older and promote to older grade. Now I have about 25 to 30 kids. I am so glad that your designs can help me to have fun with them. Thanks again. With blessings.
