Today my daughter pointed out the poinsettias decorating the lobby of her preschool and said they were beautiful so I told her we would make a poinsettia craft. While we made the craft she asked why poinsettias are out at Christmas and I had no idea! We looked up the answer together and found a wonderful story of a little girl that was too poor to bring a fancy gift to the celebration of Christmas. An angel told her to gather weeds from the side of the road and place them in the church. Red blossoms sprouted from the weeds and turned into poinsettias which beautifully decorated the church for the holiday. Learning this together made this very simple, paper Christmas craft that much more fun for both my daughter and myself.
