Let’s Dive in.
Setting up a Nativity Scene for Kids
Billions of people worldwide celebrate the birth of Jesus, making it a huge cultural and traditional practice, and no Christmas is complete without preparing the Nativity scene.
Even though we are not Christians, we love learning about different Cultures and Traditions. Hence, I created a Nativity scene to introduce the story to my child.
I designed and created these illustrations in the year 2020, and It gives me a lot of joy that my work brings the joy of Christmas to many families. Kids will enjoy making this craft and will adore the outcome.
How to Make a Nativity Scene?
The making process is very easy! All you have to do is get the printable, print, cut, fold, and glue them together.
You will need just a couple of these you already have at home to make this set.
It takes about 60 to 90 minutes to finish making the set from scratch. First, you need to download the Nativity Printable and Print the pages on either cardstock or Photo paper.
This video explains the entire process in 3 easy steps.

Please read on for some instructions as I made two changes that aren’t explained in the video.
1. To make the background stiffer, I added a cardboard sheet to the rear.
2. The palm tree was thin and tall and thus wasn’t that steady. So I had Stuck a popsicle stick on the rear.
3. I have used cardstock paper in the video & above images (Standard printing). Recently, I printed a few characters in a Photopaper, and it came out vibrant and super awesome.
See the difference in the picture here.
So, I recommend using photo paper if your printer supports it.
Please note that you need to use a cylindrical bar to fold the characters as the photo paper is too stiff.
Storing the nativity set:
Store it in a cardboard box if you want to set it up again for next year. Just stack the characters one above the other like this. It will be fine!
I believe this would be a great craft project, and older kids can have fun making this with little help from elders.
