18 Nativity Crafts for Kids to Make and learn about the first Christmas
We have been doing so much crating with the kids for Chrismas – they just love to make all the things this time of year! While we were working on our Elf crafts and Santa crafts we also wanted to focus on our favorite party of (and the part that really matters), the Nativity! What better way to teach your children the story of the birth of Christ than with Nativity crafts and activities.
Nativity Crafts are a great way to create something with the children and use them to retell the story of Christmas. And these fun nativity crafts and activities have something for everyone – even a fun snack!
