Make the Mary and Joseph with Neckers wrapped around a teepee shape made from Half size Cane. Using different colour neckers makes it work better..
Make the Crib with- 4 pieces of cut down cane tied into a oblong. Then cut paper/card into strips and weave to make the bed. Stick paper to cane with cellotape - surprising strong.
Draw paper Baby Jesus on a square bit of paper and job done :)
Make to the size you need - our models where about 2 1/2 Foot high.

Our Explorers made the Mary and Joseph and our Beavers made the Crib, suitable for all ages.
Big thanks to our Beaver Leader (Badger) for the Crib idea.
