Edible Nativity

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Have you ever done an edible Nativity as a gift? Each food represents a part of the Christmas story.   I normally pack the nativity in little gift bags and add a list of the verses so that recipients know which candy represent which character.

I have seen edible nativities using cookies, but for those that don't want to bake or don't have that kind of time during the holidays a candy nativity works well!

{Jesus} Lifesavers- "She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21

{Mary} Treasures- "When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. " Luke 2:17-19

{Joseph} Lifesaver Pop (Because he was the "pop" of the "Lifesaver")- "Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry. He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph." Matthew 3:23

{Angels} Almond Joy-But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Luke 2:10
