Important Note about Baby Jesus for Your Set

Baby Jesus is not included. You just have to paint him yourself, but he’s pretty easy, so it’s okay. Trust me.

Just get a smaller peg doll or a “peanut” shaped peg doll and do some simple painting (this picture and more information about making your own Baby Jesus is also in the download):

Purchasing Options

There is an option for one family or one classroom. The classroom option covers 25 children. If you need to use this with multiple classrooms or in a group, please purchase one copy for every 25 children. If you purchase this for your family, you should not share it with other families.

There is an option for a whole school or whole parish. If you purchase this option, you may only use it within one single school or parish/religious education program.

Note: If you have a smaller parish or school, you may purchase multiple copies of the one family/single classroom version for every 25 children instead of the whole school/whole parish option. For example: if your religious education program has 100 children that you want to use a project with, you can purchase four copies of the family/single classroom option instead of a whole school/whole parish option.
