Is there any way to make setting up my Fontanini nativity special?
If you don't have a nativity set or you have a very plain little set, why not start a beautiful new Christmas tradition with Fontanini nativity sets? These sets are made from molds, but are hand painted, which gives them a beautiful handmade look. To start a family tradition with your new Fontanini nativity set, you should:
- Begin by shopping for the stable and holy family. Of course, if you'd like to get more pieces at the same time, you can do so. However, if you can't buy everything at once, remember that, while the other pieces are important parts of the Christmas story, the family and the stable are the must have pieces in any nativity scene.
- Read the story card that was included with each piece to your family before you put the piece in its spot. As your collection grows, the story will grow, as well.
- When you are setting up your nativity next year, set up everything as you did this year, saving your newest figurine until the end. Read its story and discuss how this character helps make the Christmas story special and then have one of the kids place the figurine into the nativity scene. Since the pieces are of break-resistant polymer, they are perfect for letting little ones handle them without the possibility of breaking them.
