I am thrilled to be part of the “Focus on the Nativity Blog Hop”! A group of 28 international bloggers have gathered to host and share ideas that focus on the story of Jesus’ birth. If you are a blogger be sure and link up your Nativity activity post at the bottom. If you aren’t a blogger, you will find dozens of ideas to teach your child the true Christmas story.
A block nativity is a way for young children to interact and learn about the Christmas story. As children, how many of us were told not to touch the nativity? Didn’t you just want to get in there and play with baby Jesus, the sheep, and the shepherds? Your children can! It is so simple, too.
Fancy blocks are not needed. You can use any block set that you have. However, my husband has heard me discussing this project for a couple of years. One day I arrived home to this amazing set of blocks.
All I did was add stickers to the blocks.
It took me a while to find nativity stickers. These were located at the Christian Publishers Outlet in Springfield, MO.
Scrappin Doodles also has nativity printables on sale. You would need to use modge podge or elmer’s glue to place them on the blocks. Made by Joel has a supply list for non-toxic supplies right here as well. There are also free printables listed in the blog hop below.
Again, you don’t need handmade blocks, any set of wooden blocks will work.
