Mary & Joseph travel with the donkey to Bethlehem.
The only place they could stay was with the donkey in the stable.
The baby was called Jesus, which means "God saves"
Make a 'stable' - use lolly sticks if you have them to make a stable shape, or just draw a stable shape. Then you can draw your own donkey, or put bits of tissue paper to make a 'stained glass' effect for a window.
