Simple Shape Nativity Craft

In preparation for my preschool Sunday School class, I created a Simple Shape Nativity for the kids to complete.  I used my paper trimmer, scissors, and paper punches for the various shapes.

Simple Shape Nativity

The triangles for Joseph and Mary were cut on the diagonal from a 2 x 3 inch rectangle.  The manger was created from a 2 inch square cut in half.  The oval for baby Jesus is the Large Oval Punch from Stampin’ Up!  The heads are 1 1/4 inch circles and a 1/2 inch circle.

Easy Shape Nativity B&W

Easy Shape Nativity ClrI created a printable for you to download that includes the black and white pattern and a full-color set.

Blessings,

Take Me Deeper for 2015

His Kingdom Come is so excited to announce the preparations are done and we are ready to launch

Take Me Deeper™ is a free weekly journey at His Kingdom Come beginning Friday, January 2 2015. Take Me Deeper™ will be a weekly devotional and verse that will prompt us to spending time in His word. It is about each of us encouraging, sharing and studying the word.

Take Me Deeper 2015

Each week you will get the opportunity to translate bible study into art- mixed media, a journal, a photograph, or a digital page, poem, music. Every Friday HKC will post a verse, devotional, worship video and examples of how we interpreted the bible study in our art. We pray that these 52 weeks will change how you approach, engage and apply God’s word in your life and art. At the end of the year regardless of how many weeks you participated, you will have created a legacy of the faith walk. This legacy will show you how God has moved in your life!

Who can join?
We welcome anyone who wants to take their faith walk deeper into understanding God’s Word and deeper into their creativity. We will begin January 2, but you can join at any time during the year. You can’t be “behind” since this is about your personal journey with God and your creativity. The community at His Kingdom Come will walk with you, support and encourage you!

Where will the devotionals be?
Posts will be on the HKC site and on the HKC Facebook Page.

Where can I share and discuss my preferred art medium?
Discussions will be across all the art mediums, so feel free to check out each art group for ideas, questions, suggestions and creative ideas.

So how do I start?
First, become a member of His Kingdom Come. It is free and the first step in accessing all the creativity on the site. Beginning December 2014, HKC will have suggestions for making a journal, decorating a journal, what journal to use, and supplies to gather.

If I am doing other projects, can I incorporate them into Take Me Deeper?
Yes, if you are part of the Journaling Bible community, or any other art community or project, you can mesh all the projects together. Take Me Deeper will assist you in reading your bible, understanding God’s word, and helping you learn how to express your God-given creativity.

What about One Little Word or My One Word? How does that fit into this process?
So glad you asked! Part of Take me deeper will be the opportunity to participate in Logos365™- finding the word God gives you to focus on for an entire year. Logos365™ will be a component of Take Me Deeper. We will offer a worksheet for you to use to discover your logos365™, discussions about how to identify your logos365™ and how to live your logos365™ out through the year. Then, monthly Logos365™ prompts will initiate discussions about how you are doing living your word.
