This silhouette scene is very effective and is lovely for the kids to bring home and share the story of Christmas.
To create the background firstly we put an A4 sheet onto a tray. Then we rolled marbles in paint and dropped them onto the sheet. Carefully we rolled them around the page to create a pretty design.
We cut out silhouettes of the stable, Baby Jesus, Mary & Joseph. Once the background was dry we glued the silhouettes on and finished with some stars.
If you have silver or gold paint it works really well on the background.
If you don't want to do a nativity scene you could do a Christmas tree or snowman.
