Adventures of the Snowman Nativity:
Tool Time Edition

By popular request, here are the continuing adventures of my quirky little snowman nativity.

As you may recall, I was given a nativity where the figurines were all snowmen. I let my son, Jonah, play with this nativity set so he will leave my "nice" ones alone. He is really enjoying having his own nativity to play with.

The adventures of the snow people continue as various tools came to pay homage to the new born King. The shepherd and one of the wise men are somewhat intrigued, however Mary and the others turn their backs on the visiting slotted screwdriver. Apparently tools are not welcome to come see the baby Jesus.

Hey! Who's been screwing around with the nativity?

In reality (or our version of it), Jonah was using the screwdriver as a paint brush. Apparently some of the figurines and the "stable" needed a new coat of paint.

Later when I looked at the nativity I saw that Little Snow Baby Jesus was missing again. Apparently his little sleigh needed work.

Some assembly required.

The problem with Little Snow Baby Jesus' sleigh seems to be an ongoing one. Later I found Jonah walking around with his little pliers keeping a tight grip on the little sleigh. Of course when I asked him to show me baby Jesus, he pulled him out of the pliers to show him to me.

Can we fix it? Yes we can!

I have been having a great time watching how creatively Jonah plays with the figurines. I am not sure how they feel about it though! It seems that all of the excitement has worn Joseph out! He and the shepherd are taking a little siesta at the moment, while Mary confers with one of the wise men about the reoccurring "missing Baby Jesus" problem.

And who is watching Little Snow Baby Jesus?
You and I, of course!

I am participating in Wordful Wednesday.

    I have a nativity set that I loved playing with when I was younger. I used to use Disney figurines and a baby Mickey was Jesus! Funny what kids do with their imaginations.

  18. That is so cute! I remember playing with my parents' nativity as a girl, and often baby Jesus would go missing too. I don't think my mom approved as much as you do since hers were ceramic and fairly expensive. It's nice that they make kid ones now a days.
