Nativity Craft Ideas
Coloring – Coloring is a really good quiet time activity for kids and it’s something that they normally enjoy too. The two designs with figures in them would make the best coloring sheets so all you need to do is print them out and grab markers, coloring pencils or crayons. If you want to paint your own nativity scene then I would recommend printing this onto cardstock to make sure it doesn’t become over saturated and tear.
Drawing Template – Start with one of the stable outlines and encourage kids to draw on the people and animals from the nativity story. They could do this as you read the story to them if you like.
Collage – You could add brown construction paper to the stable or straw or shredded paper to the manger.
Puppets – You could print out the template with the most characters on them onto card stock and then cut these out using scissors. Stick these onto popsicle or craft sticks using glue or tape and then you can use them to make your own nativity puppet show to help tell the story.
