Create a Nativity Scene

The Nativity play is not limited to just church. Have the whole family get together to put on your very own Christmas play.

The possibilities are endless when you decide to re-create the birth of Jesus Christ. You can do something small, just for the family or you can go as big as an outdoor nativity scene that the kids or your whole family put on for the neighborhood.

If you're going to have a family only, in the living room Nativity scene let the kids have full rein of the play from the props to the casting. What better way to find out just how much of the meaning of Christmas your children really understand. From there you can teach them anything they may not understand and help them to bring their ideas to life, by assisting where they may need a hand.

Why not gather the whole family together to create an outdoor Nativity scene? From creating the manger to the baby Jesus, you can really bring the Nativity story to life. For those without a small child to play baby Jesus, you can easily substitute a doll.

A play that tells the story of the Nativity is fun and informative. Children will learn about Christ and how he came into the world. By conducting a play of the Christmas story, your children will learn that Christmas is about so much more than just Santa Clause and receiving all those gifts. What better way to teach your child what being unselfish is all about than with a nativity scene creation.
