A fun new idea at AWANA this year was "manger scene night" where all the kids were told to come dressed as anything from a manger scene. We pulled our costumes together at the last minute as usual, but the kids looked really cute. Brianna and Gloria were both angels. Music Man was a horse. Danya was Mary with her baby Jesus.
It was only for the older kids, so we didn't have to put the boys in a costume, thank goodness. As it was, we were scrambling to find wings and something for "Mary" to wear on her head. She ended up using a baby blanket. One girl actually came dressed as a manger wearing a box with hay in it.
