This nativity craft was originally designed to be printed, colored, and glued around toilet paper tubes to make the pieces stand up. Since then, many readers have discovered that it’s just as good to print the pieces on card stock, and then use tape or staples to make them into a cylinder.

The Catholic Toolbox- Rosary Bingo: Students play regular bingo, but they answer questions about the Rosary. The teacher asks one student at a time a question from the list. The student answers the question and the class looks for the word(s) on their bingo card. The first student who gets five in a row (up, down, across, or diagonal) on their bingo card first, wins. You can play in teams or individually. (The teacher can give the students some hints to help them answer the questions correctly if needed.)
