Perfect Your Christmas Shepherds Costume with a Real Shepherd's Crook
Friday, 30 November 2018
It doesn’t matter if you’re hosting a school nativity play with a seven-year-old Joseph, or a big show at the local church hall, it always feels like a mad scramble to put together a nativity play. If you’re looking to get ahead of the curve, at Health and Care we have the perfect accessory for your costumes; real shepherd’s crooks!
Why Use a Shepherd's Crook in Nativity Play?
Using a real shepherd's crook is a great finishing touch to your handmade Christmas shepherd’s costume, and will help draw in the audience even more to the fantastic story you (or your little ones) are putting on this Christmas. A discerning audience will easily spot a fake shepherd's crook, so it’s a good idea to have the real deal up on stage on opening night.
These shepherd's crooks are used by real farmers every day, and are still incredibly popular among the farming community. They have a great significance in people’s minds and hearts, and will make a valuable addition to any shepherd costume for nativity plays.
Which Crook is Right for Me?
It doesn’t even matter what kind of nativity play you’re putting on. Here at Health and Care we stock a range of traditional and slightly less traditional walking sticks that will complete any nativity play costume.
