Are you shopping for holiday garb for your son or daughter? Order the Shepherd Child Costume. Included in the set are a white robe, brown outer robe and brown rope belt. According to the gospels, shepherds were taking care of their sheep near Bethlehem when angels came to tell them of the birth of Jesus. They then traveled to Bethlehem to see the baby. Shepherds are always an important part of a Christmas play or a nativity scene. If your church has a live nativity scene, you would want to include a sheep or two and at least one shepherd. You can also dress your child in this costume for your annual family Christmas card photo. We have a number of complementing outfits including wise men, Joseph and Mary also available. Staff is sold separately.
