Christmas decoration





This little crib my son made in kindergarten when he was four years old. 
Here it stands on the long table, but then it is put under the Christmas tree. 
It is very handy:  you can put the parts together in a flat box (decorated with potato print :-) when you want to store them for the next year. The star is hung up on a tiny nail. I love it very much. 
Christmas was fine, very tranquil. I hope you had a good time too!

  1. That is very clever. Some teacher put a good deal of care and thought into it.

    1. Absolutely! The Kindergarden made the roof and the floor - but the figures of Maria and Joseph and the child (and the star) were drawn and sawn out with the fret saw by my son himself :-)

  2. That is very special and it carries wonderful Christmas memories being made by your son long ago. A cherished treasure, for sure.
