Here are the supplies/tools you'll need to build gingerbread nativity scenes:

  • 4. Frosting
  • 5. Red and black licorice
  • 6. Pretzel sticks
  • 7. Peanuts for bay jesus
  • 8. White cardboard bases I found these at a craft store and cut them in half. I think they were meant to be cake bases.

  1. Fill the ziplocs with frosting and cut a small hole in the corner of the bag.
  2. Distribute the goods and let the kids get creative.
