Chatting with my friend Allie this morning about the kid’s nativity sets and books that our kids love, I knew I needed to share all of our favorites along with Part 1 of the Nativity Templates I made.
Allie really recommends this one:
Her kids play with it a lot and sing along to the music. It lights up so they like to play with with the lights off too.
I want this (I love advent calendars and felt boards):
Here are the 3 books we absolutely LOVE (see if your local library has them):
Finally, here is Part One of the templates that I made as an extension activity to all that you are doing learning about the birth of Jesus:
The templates I made are GREAT to use as play dough mats, dry-erase tracing mats, patterns to put along side your paper as you draw the pictures shape by shape, and using for construction paper art.
This Part 1 of the templates include: Joseph and Mary, an Angel, a Star, and baby Jesus.
It is included in my membership because I sell this template set on TeachersPayTeachers, but you can get it included in the membership for just $5 right now (limited time price).
Here is a quick little YouTube video for using the angel template:
