Nativity Scene Activity: Christian Nativity Scene “Stained Glass” Coloring Table Posters. Think of these as fun, extra large, Holiday coloring pages for your students.

My Nativity Scene Table Posters are geared towards pre-K, kindergarten, and 1st graders (but of course older kids love them, too!). They are small posters (or big coloring pages) that you spread out on a table and have small groups of kids work on together—or apart! They are immediately engaging, lead to great discussion and cooperation, and, most of all, they are fun!

My Table Posters are great for...

  • morning work
  • stations
  • centers
  • early finishers
  • rainy recess activity

...and as a bonus—they help decorate your classroom!

Basically, whenever you want your students to collaborate and work together, these my Table Posters are the perfect solution. I hope that you find these to be as useful with your students as I do with mine. one teacher said, "I have never seen my students work together so well! They absolutely loved this activity and I liked that I could put them in small groups." - Ms. Appleby

This set includes the following designs:

  • Angel (right facing)
  • Angel (left facing)
  • Star
  • Animals (camel, donkey and cow)
  • 3 wise men
  • Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus manger

I spread these out on the tables when children arrive—and after some very brief instructions, they get right to work. And really, the only instructions I give my students are that they should work with their partner(s) to come up with a color scheme, and to include their name somewhere on the table poster.

I enjoy listening to them talk about who will color which section, and what colors they will use. It takes 3 children about 30 minutes to complete one image. It is a great, calm, way to start class and get things going in the creative (and correct) direction!

It takes 3 children about 30-45 minutes to complete one image. It is a great, calm, way to get things going in the creative (and correct) direction!

And, as I mentioned, a bonus of these table posters is that when the kids are through, you have a set of beautiful images with which you can assemble a Christmas nativity scene to adorn your classroom for the Holidays!

Unlike my popular, larger, collaborative posters—where children color the pieces according to a key, cut the pages out, and then assemble the poster—for these simpler Table Posters, you (the adult) cut the pages and assemble the poster first (it's super easy), and then the students color the fully-assembled table poster.

  • Each poster has 2-4 pieces and each piece fits on regular 8.5” x 11” paper. If you have a parent volunteer or an older student from a buddy classroom, they could easily help you with this first part.

I hope your students have a wonderful time working together on this Holiday activity.
