Play with a Nativity scene!

Children are often intrigued by Nativity scenes, however, many are breakable and not safe for them to play with. The Mary from our Precious Moments set had a collision and lost her head when our oldest daughter was playing with the pieces. She was so excited! Let children experience this Christmas by giving them a Nativity scene of their own. One that they can play with. A soft stuffed set for younger children. A plastic set for elementary children. Even a small glass set for older children.

Encourage children to play out what happened on the first Christmas and what each person involved would have said or thought. This is a great way for younger children to learn about Christ's coming.
