Nativity Sunday school lessons for preschoolers with lots of fun activities and crafts!

New updated lessons, with new or updated pictures, activities and crafts. New for 2014: Nativity Puppets for all five lessons, and and very short, quick skits for three of the lessons. The puppets also stand up so you can use them in your Nativity scene. There is the new free 3D Baby Jesus Manger craft and stand-up animals. Members still have access to the original stand-up characters and the other printable resources below, as well. (See below). Children ages 4-5 may want to make the whole Nativity Set (Mary puppet, Joseph puppet, Angel puppet, 3D Manger Craft with Baby Jesus and Animals that stand up). For young children, you could just use one of the several craft options for each lesson. Bible Kids Fun Zone has four Nativity lessons in this series. Each lesson focuses on one gift that God gives us as it tells part of the story of Jesus' birth. There are at least three crafts included per week (usually more). Some can be used as visual aids for the bible story, and for children's crafts as well. All of them are easy enough for preschoolers except the free box stable craft for you to make at home (since it requires cutting a cardboard box). It's just optional, not needed for the lessons.

We offer lots of easy fun Nativity crafts and activities for preschoolers to make the bible story of Jesus' birth memorable and fun! These Nativity crafts are designed with young children in mind. They are easy for children to make themselves with little supervision. And best of all - these Nativity activities reinforce the real meaning of Christmas!

There are 3D stand-up Nativity crafts, pop-up Nativity crafts, tactile touch-n-feel Nativity crafts, Nativity coloring pages. There is more than one craft for each Nativity bible lesson for you to choose from: Mary and Joseph crafts, Angel crafts, Baby Jesus manger crafts, Wisemen crafts, or Shepherd crafts.

Week 1 Overview of Lesson, Crafts and Activities - The Angel Visits Mary and Joseph

Mary was Told She'd Have a Baby Boy, She Was Given God's Gift of Joy!

Download the free lesson

This lesson is simple, yet has important concepts for the children: God takes notice of each of us; God is especially kind to those who trust in him; Those who trust and follow God receive joy. The lesson crafts double as Nativity Puppets that you can use to tell this part of the bible story of the time before Jesus' birth. See details below.

Week 1 Lesson - Free

Week 1 Activities - Free Week 1 Crafts - Some are free

 

This lesson is based on Luke 1:26-56. The key verse is Luke 1:50. The verses used for reference in writing the lesson were: Psalm 5:11-12 and 1 Peter 1:8-9. This lesson provides an idea for a warm-up activity, an introduction to help children relate to the story, the Bible story packed with activities, a Talk Time and Prayer Time. Also provided are color-illustrated pictures that can be used to decorate your bulletin boards: Gifts (that relate to the lesson concepts), and a picture of Mary and Joseph. If you like 3D bulletin boards, you could even staple the Nativity puppets to your bulletin board.

 

Children are made to feel welcome with the optional Warm-up activity. The Pretend Play activities include: Building with Joseph, flapping your wings like the angel, and going on a trip with Mary (to see Elizabeth). There is an action rhyme that children can participate in as they do the hand motions, as well as a a short skit for this part of the pre-Nativity story, a fun game and a group activity. See more details in the Lesson Snapshot. As with every lesson, there are snack ideas and a simple prayer example.

 

There are three puppets that you use as children's crafts: Mary, Joseph, and the Angel, as well as a separate stand-up angel (the one that looks like a child). There is also a Gift Sticker Craft - Children lift up the sticker made with repositionable glue sticks to see what the gift is that God gives us. You could also opt for a neat little Gift Booklet Craft that kids can flip through to help them remember the concepts of the lessons.

Get the free download of the Christmas Gifts craft and game in black-and-white on the Nativity Fun Pack page where you can also download the first two Nativity lessons with the activities, craft pages, coloring pages and instructions.

The Nativity lesson for Week 2, Jesus was Born - God's Gift of Love! He was God's Son, Sent From Above! You have lots of chioices for this fun, active lesson. You can make the Box Stable, or skip it and just use the Nativity Puppets or pictures. The pictures come in both black and white and color. Use them with the lesson or for children's Nativity crafts and coloring pages.

Lesson Snapshot: Nativity Activities for Week 2 Lesson: Crafts for Week 2 Lesson:

 

The lesson is based on Luke 2:6-7 and Matthew 1:18-25. The main concepts of the lesson: God gave us his own Son Jesus - a gift of love. God sent us Jesus because he loved us so much. Jesus showed us God's love perfectly! There is a warm-up activity to help children feel comfortable as they arrive. For the lesson, it is recommended that you use the Nativity Puppets to tell the story. There are lots of activities that keep up children's interest and help them participate in their learning. There are rhymes with hand motions, a share time when children can talk about the story, and a prayer example. See Activities section to see more options.

 

This lesson shows children up close how they wrapped babies in swaddling cloths in Bible Times and has lots of pretend play activities: Children pretend to be with Mary and Joseph going to Bethlehem; they pretend to be the animals in the stable; and after the lesson they can act out short parts of the lesson using the Nativity Puppets or dress up and be the characters themselves. There are three action rhymes for this lesson.

 

This week you add the Baby Jesus Manger Craft and Stand-up Animals to the Puppets from Week 1. There is also a Nativity Sticker Set. Use restickable glue to make repositionable stickers. A very popular craft is the Touch-n-Feel Baby Jesus Craft. Children enjoy feeling the different textures of baby Jesus' blanket, the lamb, and the smoth shiny star. There are two extra coloring pages: Nativity scene, and an up-close picture of Baby Jesus with the Animals.

New Touch-n-Feel Nativity Craft for Preschool and Kindergarten Children on Bible Kids Fun Zone! and the resources in all of the themes on Bible Kids Fun Zone. Children love to feel different textures. Create a fun memory in children with this fun, easy tactile Nativity craft that children can touch and feel for themselves.

These photos show the printables that you can use to teach children the concept of the Trinity in a very easy way:

The children count the three parts of the cupcake with you, then you lay the 1 cupcake over it. Then they count the three persons in the Trinity: God, the Father, Jesus, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Then you lay the sticker over it that says One God. No, it may not totally gel for preschoolers, but it will help them begin to understand.

The pictures come in black and white that you can use as a craft for children for this lesson or any time you teach the concept; or print the pictures in color to have a quick way to show children the concepts of the Trinity. Make your cupcake and Trinity stickers by using restickable glue or repositionable glue on the back of the three parts.
