I think it's still called a creche in english.  Or cresh?  Anyway, this is what my mom and I did this morning!


My mom got the idea from a fellow teacher of hers and needed an example so she could do the project in class.  I'm bringing a picture to volunteering today (I do art therapy in a hospital) to show my supervisor, since I think most patients would be able to make them.

The bodies and manger are terra cotta pots, and the heads are ping pong balls and a marble.

That's cute!  I've seen the idea, but I really like the way yours turned out.  (I've heard the terms creche, nativity scene, or manger scene, interchangeably. Smiley)
