We love making nativities with the kids! It is a wonderful way to countdown and prepare for Christmas during the lovely festive holiday season! Today, I have teamed up with very.co.uk to bring you this gorgeous 3d Nativity Coloring Page Printable!! The best bit? You can combine with an electrice tealight for that extra special effect. Simply beautiful!

If you are browing nativity crafts to do in the classroom with your students or at home with your the whole family, do consider this lovely printable. It shows the nativity scene – Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus in the manger, as well as the star and stable.
It is a great “level” for coloring – not too intricate, that younger children can’t manage, not to simplicitic that older children won’t “enjoy” it too.
The nativity set would look lovely as part of a classroom display, or in your home. I can just see it on the mantle piece.
You must include this in your December Christmas Crafts – whether you are doing it as part of your advent activities or right before Christmas Eve!
Supplies needed to make this 3d nativity paper craft:
- Your printable nativity set
- A printer
- Light card is ideal for this craft (180gsm) but you can use regular printer paper too and glue the “back” of the nativity onto some recycled card (e.g. cereal packet cardboard, be sure to stick onto the grey part of the recycled card, so the cereal print doesn’t show through)
- Pens, markers, pencils, watercolours (whatever takes your fancy)
- Optional: electric tealight – this 3d Nativity also looks lovely as a “stand alone” craft, but the electric tealight, really does make it quite magical
This printable is available for a small fee from my gumroad store.
How to make your Christmas Nativity Set
This really is a super simple nativity craft for you to enjoy! And you don’t really need a tutorial to go with this!
Put on some Christmas music. Print out your Christmas coloring pages.
Take your time coloring in the nativity scene – Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus in the Manger and of course ths stables and Christmas star. If you want you can even add a little eco friendly glitter.
If printed on paper, you may now wish to stick the stables onto some light cardboard (e.g. the back of a cereal box – remember to stick it on the grey part of the recycled box, so none of the cereal box writing shines through).
Cut out your two shapes – the stables and the manger scene.
Cut the slits (see the “cute here” signs).
Insert the two sections together – no glue needed!!
Now your very own Nativity set is ready for display on a shelf, mantle piece of desk… As mentioned, you can add an electric tealight, which makes this little 3D Nativity set EXTRA special or you can use it “as is”. Your call!
A big thank you to very.co.uk for sponsoring this craft!
