I would rather it conformed to the true meaning of Christmas and we have done Angels for 2 years already! Anyone know an easy way to hand print a baby or a king or anything really? or if not i will take any ideas at all! we need to prepare them this weekend!

Our school had a thing where the children's drawings were printed onto cards - would that be an option?

yes this is exactly the same thing! i am just looking for inspiration of what to encourage for the drawing!

Oh I am with you (wasn't concentrating). Can't you just have them draw a baby Jesus in a manger with a star? It is supposed to be cute and done by them you know, not all pro looking ;)

(Or you can do an angel with handprint wings...though I see you dont' want angels...)

A wooden block wrapped in elastic bands/string will do a pretty good print for a manger, thumb/finger print for baby jesus' face?

Make a huge Christmas-themed line drawing and get each child in the school to sign his/her first name along the lines. Then shrink the picture to the size of a card and have it printed in black/white. That way every child in the school has a tiny bit of him/her on it!

how about painting a wreath with green finger prints, then waiting until it dries and drawing on a bow and berries with a pen?

what about a christmas tree and each child draws a decoration to hang on it.
Assuming you aren't talking 300 kids. ds2's school did it one year. Easy for a class of 25-30

Another year they made a christmas tree with all the childrens fingerprints. Each fingerprint labelled with their name
