Review: My Christmas Stencil Activity Pack

        I received `My Christmas Stencil Activity Pack` from Kregel. The stencil pack is perfect for ages 5 and up. There are some small pieces which could cause a choking hazard. The pack includes a Christmas storybook, six stencils, and a large coloring sheet.

        The storybook, `My First Story of Christmas`, has a very colorful cover with Mary, the mother of Jesus, riding on a donkey and her husband, Joseph, feeding the donkey. The pages have simple one or two sentence paragraphs that are simple enough for the youngest reader, with colorful pictures on each page.

        The stencils are made of thick cardboard that cannot be easily torn. Children can draw with the stencils while the story is being read to them. All the stencils are taken from the story. There are no secular stencils. Because they are durable they can be used over and over again and saved to use each Christmas.

The large color sheet folds out into 2 sections where the children can share the color pages. It is a summary of what the story is about. The package does not come with paint brushes or pencils.

I recommend this activity pack to all children ages 5 and up.
