Then they can glue the baby Jesus body and head. The manger will be laying face down and they can glue however they want to the back of the manger so it looks like he is laying in it.

Cut lots of strips of raffia to make hay. I found it easiest to tape the hay on so it would stay in an y way they wanted. Again, this is on the back.
