  • - You'll need.
    Nativity figurines.
    Artificial moss.
    A pile of wood in miniature.
    A little plant.
    It is enough to put the little plant in a corner, at the back, together with the pile of wood and sprinkle some moss on the whole bottom. Place the Holy Family in front. If your figurines aren't too big, put the ox and donkey too. If you'd like some light you could place a touch lamp LED light under the moss in the best positon. You can switch on this little torch with a simple pressure. So this little crib helps you to save energy ;))
