Reason for the Season - Simple Nativity Coloring Page

With all the shopping frenzy surrounding Black Friday, Cyber Monday and this year's Thanksgiving in the US falling very late in the month, it's tempting to forget about the basis for Christmas as a religious holiday.

Here's a simple nativity scene coloring page that even the littlest angel could manage to color in, or you can make several easy crafts using the design as a template printed on heavy paper or card stock.

Use glitter glue or clear glue to trace along the lines and then sprinkle with glitter.

This design would make a handy craft template for pierced paper on cardstock in white or light blue. Punch evenly spaced holes along the lines of the design in a sheet of heavy paper or vellum.  Glue or tape two simple easel stands or pieces of short folded paper to the sides, then place it in front of a battery operated votive or single electric candle. If you make it small enough you might be able to roll the sheet of paper into a tube and tape the ends together.

Great White Shark Coloring Picture

The weather's been sooo hot even up here in Vermont for the past week or more, so everyone's heading to beaches to cool off. The ocean is our favorite place for swimming (well, after a cool mountain creek or Beebe Lake) in the good old summertime, but even in New England there's a chance you'll need to get out of the water because a shark is cruising the coastline.

The film Jaws was filmed off the island beaches of Martha's Vineyard, in Massachusetts.

The great white that was spotted swimming in the Cape Cod area this spring inspired my drawing of a printable shark coloring sheet. Add your own details - waves, swimmers, clouds, boats or ick - body parts.
