What is the Nativity Scene?
Nativity scenes have been a cherished tradition for centuries, symbolizing the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem.
The serene depiction of Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, angels, and the three wise men gathered around the newborn baby Jesus in a humble stable evokes a sense of wonder and awe.
Our Nativity colouring page captures this beauty and invites you to add your personal touch to this timeless tableau.

The Educational Benefits of Coloring the Nativity Scene
Colouring isn’t just about having fun with crayons and markers – it’s a valuable learning tool for children.
When kids engage in colouring activities, they not only unleash their creativity but also absorb and retain information more effectively. Let’s delve into what kids can learn by colouring the Nativity scene.
1. Understanding the Birth of Jesus
As kids colour the Nativity scene, they are visually immersing themselves in the story of the birth of Jesus. The act of colouring becomes a memorable and interactive way for them to connect with the narrative.
2. Retention of Details
By colouring each element of the scene, the children enhance their ability to recall and remember details of the Nativity story. Details such as
- Baby Jesus in the manger
- Joseph and Mary in the shed
- the three wise men with their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh
- the shepherds with sheep
- the donkey on which Mary travelled to Bethlehem
- the big bright shining star above Jesus
3. Sequencing and Storytelling
Colouring the Nativity scene encourages kids to understand the chronological order of events. They can create their narrative by colouring each component in a sequence, fostering storytelling skills as they narrate the story of Jesus’ birth.
This Nativity colouring page strikes a perfect balance by presenting a comprehensive scene without overwhelming details. It allows children to engage with the story at their own pace, making learning both enjoyable and effective.
The simplicity of the colouring page makes it ideal for children of all ages, and they can proudly display their creations during the holiday season.
