Live Nativity / Picture a Christmas

Read a nativity book.

Tell children to look under their chair for a star (they're numbered).

In the numbered order children get to come up and choose which nativity character they'd like to be. When the nativity is assembled sing Picture a Christmas.

SR: Have each nativity child read a scripture that goes with their character.

  • Cut out stars
  • Number stars
  • Gather items for children to wear for each character (Joseph, Mary+Jesus [baby doll], Wise Men, Shepherds, Angel...)

Before children arrive:
  • Tape stars under chairs
