After we have created our paper angels, I thought of adding more Christ-centered Christmas crafts to our collection of easy crafts for kids.

We love Santa crafts, elf crafts and reindeer crafts. But if we want to teach kids about the true meaning of Christmas, we need to turn to religion and talk to them about baby Jesus and how he was born. An idea like our nativity craft is a fun way to do it at home or during the Sunday School.

This craft is very easy. All you have to do is print out the template, cut out the patterns and glue them together. This makes it perfect for kids as young as preschoolers who will get a chance to practice their fine motor skills. Older kids will also love the simplicity of the craft and the beautiful outcome.
