Kid-Created Nativity Christmas Cards

easy kid-created nativity Christmas cards

Though it is already too late for you to use this idea for your own Christmas cards this year, I still wanted to go ahead and share our very simple kid-created nativity Christmas cards with you!  I normally do a photo card for Christmas, but wanted something a little bit more hands-on that the kids could be involved in making.  When I saw Nativity sticker packs at Oriental Trading, I ordered a couple of sets because I knew I’d found the perfect preschool-friendly way to make our Christmas cards!!

I put together one model card for the kids to use as a guide and let them work on a card or two a day.

We added thumbprints on the back in the shape of a heart and I let them write their names to make it as personal as possible.  Not to mention, the activity as a whole was great fine motor practice!!

The cards aren’t perfect by any means, but I think that’s part of what makes them special.

Christmas cards made by kids

These nativity Christmas cards were definitely made with lots of love and though we made a bunch of them, the awe of placing baby Jesus in the stable followed by the rest of the classic Nativity scene was never lost on the kids one bit. 

Merry Christmas!!
