Our little one (who just turned 3 years old last week) loves doing “school” work. So I created a few Christmas printables to go along with teaching the “Birth of Jesus” story throughout the month of December. They are nothing fancy but she loves circling, coloring, underlining, etc. so I made them for her. (Click here or click on the image to print).
I would probably try to find some visuals/charts to show along with the story. Visuals are great teaching resources for little ones! But if I cannot find visuals, then I would read the story from a toddler Bible or so and try to explain it in simple terms.
Here are all the worksheets to go along with the story. Some of them look like they are not evenly sized with the others – that is because they have white backgrounds instead of coloured. (Click here or click any image to print the set).
For the craft: A Nativity Scene
This one is super easy (the photo is a little blurry).
There are many great tutorials for nativity scenes on the internet. I decided to follow this link and use the simple tutorial and download the free cut-outs.
For the background: We would use brown felt or a sheet of brown poster board paper.
For the barn: We would glue Popsicle sticks on the background to make the shape.
For the characters (people, animals): We would use the cut-outs from the link above if we use poster board background or felt shaped animals if we use the felt background.
This person has no grass: But we would use some brown and green construction paper or felt to make strips of grass then glue around the barn. Will try to post an update once we get it done.
