Nativity Figures for Children to Create & Colour - Free Printable

Looking for a simple Nativity craft? These Printable Nativity Figures are perfect for all ages to create & colour, & together they make a fun Nativity scene to play with & explore over Christmas. Great for encouraging creativity, imaginative play & so much more. 

I've been looking for printable Nativity figures for a while now, but couldn't quite find what I was looking for, so I decided to create this set of cute simple characters.

 I've designed the figures to be bulky to make it a little easier for little hands to manipulate when cutting out, & also left the characters quite plain & simple so children can choose to add their own features to the different characters. We added beards to the male figures in our Nativity set & a halo for our angel, but children can take ownership of their design & style their characters as they wish. 

You'll find these & everything you need to create the Nativity Figures in our FREE Printable, which includes Mary, Joseph, 2 Shepherds, 3 Kings & an Angel, along with support tabs to stick to the back of the characters, Wings for the Angel, Crowns for the Kings, & of course Baby Jesus. Download your copy here & create your own Nativity Set.

If you wish to add more characters, just print off another sheet & add a few more figures to your Nativity cast. Who says there only need to be 3 Kings? 😉

For best results print onto cardstock, alternatively you could print them onto paper & back them with cardboard. Either way they'll stand up & be strong enough to withstand plenty of play. 

These would make great puppets to accompany a Nativity Story book, or for children to retell the Christmas Story in their own words. 

However you use them, I hope your children have fun creating the characters & that they inspire plenty of creativity & play. Don't forget to share your creations over on our Instagram or Facebook page, we'd love to see your Nativity Set.
