If you’re looking for a fun way to teach your preschoolers, kindergartners or older kids about Christmas, this Nativity Wreath is a great craft to help you!
With many main characters present–baby Jesus, the wise men, the shepherds, and the angels–your child will have a visual aid to help them imagine the story unfold.
It also provides an opportunity for them to revisit the story after the craft is made! Perfect for young kids and old, the Nativity Wreath is a great way to share the Christmas story and a great coloring activity to use at home or for Christmas Sunday School.
To begin, start with coloring. Colored pencils might be the best choice for this craft. As your child colors, start sharing the nativity story.
After Jesus was born, he was placed in a manger. A manger is where animals eat! So at his birth, there likely would have been livestock around like cows, horses, or donkeys.
Baby Jesus is a special child. He was born so that the world would know who God is! Jesus can give people eternal life and a relationship with God. Because of this, the angels in heaven rejoiced at his birth!
The angels told the shepherds that Jesus had been born, and that they could go see him! The shepherds walked with their sheep to see this amazing baby.
There were also three wise men who wanted to see Jesus! They saw a star in the sky and followed it for many days. This star led them to the miracle child.
Once your child finishes coloring, cut out the two pieces and glue them together. Next, glue a small string in a loop to the top so that your child can hang it up!
Kids will love this Nativity Wreath as a way to remember the nativity story through the Christmas season!
