This is a super easy nativity craft for children. We first had a discussion on the true meaning of Christmas and I shared the story of the birth of Jesus.
I showed the children a completed project so they knew what they were going to be creating.
To make this project go to free coloring pages and print out your favorite nativity picture for the children to color. I cut pieces of cardboard to be 9 x12 inches and the children glued a piece of blue construction paper using a glue stick to cover the cardboard. They then colored four jumbo craft sticks brown. Using their craft sticks they built the stable forming walls and a roof. They used glue to secure the sticks to the paper. They painted a wooden craft star yellow and glued it to the top of the stable.
Cut out the nativity after it is colored and glue it in the center of the stable.
