Yesterday at church, the kids in my class were given foam blocks, popscicle sticks, and small wooden figures of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus to make their own nativity scenes.
What, can't you tell that this is a manger scene?!! Look closer, and you'll see the people inside:
Yes, this was Malachi's version of the nativity. He very excitedly constructed it, and when he was done, I asked him to tell me about it. His response? Mary, Jesus, and Joseph are inside the temple of doom and have to be rescued. There are lots of booby traps, and you have to be careful and brave to get to them and get them out.
Can you tell that they've been playing Indiana Jones Lego Wii lately? And that he's a bit obsessed?
P.S. I really did tell them the Christmas story, and it did not make any references to temples of doom or booby traps. Just in case you're wondering. :)
