update to play nativity

update to play nativity 
My mom brought over some walnut shells so Baby Jesus finally has a manger to rest his sweet head.

The "blanket" is a cotton ball cut in half over a little piece of knit (a stained t-shirt of my son's) hot glued (a lot) into the walnut shell. I decided against a top blanket so that Baby Jesus could still be seen and recognized as such. Baby Jesus was then hot glued on top of the blanket.
 I added little (shortened) painted toothpicks to the bottoms so the walnut shell would be stable. I used a lot of hot glue to (hopefully) ensure they would stay on through rough-ish play.  

I plan on using this walnut shell technique (if you can call it that) for a future project, so stay tuned.
