    2. DO NOT add glue yet. This way you can see exactly how you wish to place the stickers on the sticks.

 

    1. Once you have decided, add a dab of glue to the back of each felt sticker and press to the tip of the wood stick. Hold the sticker in place until it is secure. Set aside to dry.

  1. Tie some ribbon around the mouth of a jar. Place the stick puppets inside of the jar, sticker side up.

The Story of the Nativity

Play Mary and Joseph huddled in the stable tight,

Under the star of the angel which shined so bright.

Where Jesus was born, so tiny and sweet,

While animals snuggled softly at his feet.

The angels told the wise men that a king had been born,

So they went in search of the king to adorn.

They found him wrapped in swaddling clothes,

And placed precious gifts down near his toes.

The angels sang, the stars shone bright,

On this most holy Christmas night.
