Nativity box 1

You can be the proud owner of a 6" (125mm) cardboard box!
(Boxes are available from the church foyer and office.)

The challenge is to create a scene from the nativity within the box using whatever material/ideas you like.
You can decorate the outside of the box, even add lights but you are not allowed to extend the box!
Go on — be as creative as possible and dream up a great idea however simple or complicated.

We hope to get people of all ages involved and all the nativity boxes will be displayed in church in the run up to Christmas for everyone to enjoy!

Please return your nativity box to Alton Methodist Church by 10th December. Thank you!
