Would you like your kiddos to be able to sequence & retell the Christmas story?
This nativity craft is a “flip-the-flap” booklet, which is a simple & fun way to do that.
"I love this resource! It was very creative and very easy for students to complete."
"The kids had fun making this and it was easy for them to understand."
If you do a "Christmas Around the World" ed-venture, this craftivity makes a nice addition to your travels.
The stable is the base of the booklet and is printed on card stock to make it sturdy.
Once the booklet is complete, it is free standing and makes a cute decoration.
The “doors” of the stable open, to reveal graphics of the major events that take place; from Mary & Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem to the birth of Jesus.
Besides black & white patterns for students to color, cut & glue, I’ve also included colorful templates so that you can quickly & easily make an example to share.
This Christmas craft is versatile & easy to diversify because of a variety of
page options. I’ve provided pages for beginning readers, as well as pages without words for younger kiddos.
You can also use these pages for older students, so they can write about what is happening and explain the graphic, or find a matching Bible verse to record on the appropriate pages.
"I really appreciated all of the choices available with this book and that it was ready-to-go."
"This was a great resource with many options to personalize for any age level."
For extra writing practice, I’ve also included a completely blank page.
On the back of the stable, students can write “Jesus loves me.” or “Jesus is the reason for the season.”
There are add-on graphics included as well: 4, star patterns for children to choose from, plus a cow & donkey they can glue to the back of the last, opened pages, so that when the doors are completely open, the animals flank the manger.
Be sure & click on the PREVIEW to see samples.
Brushing some Elmer’s glue on the star, then sprinkling with gold glitter adds extra pop & pizzazz.
When everyone is done, read the booklet together as a whole group, calling on students to explain the various events taking place.
Encourage children to sequence & retell the story of Christ’s birth to their families, as they share their nativity booklet at home.
"Such a cute and creative Christmas craft for kids. They loved it!"
