This printable Nativity Set is so much fun and is very easy to make. This is a lovely craft for children to engage with the Christmas story and it’s a fabulous way to decorate your house or classroom too.
The nativity templates come in full colour and also black and white which children can enjoy colouring in themselves. The printable nativity figures are based around a simple tube shape so they stand up really well and are nice and easy for little hands to hold and move around.
The Nativity set has everything you need to retell the Christmas story. Each set is made up of 16 items:
- Baby Jesus
- Two Sheep
- Three Kings
- Two Palm Trees
- Two Landscape Rocks
To enjoy creating your own nativity scene simply print, cut, stick and play!
Scroll down to see how gorgeous the pieces are and how easy it is to put together!
The set has a stable in front of a backdrop of sand dunes and a star filled sky which extends out on either side. There are also two free standing palm trees and rocks to add to the scenery too, and you could of course print more if you wanted to.
The printable nativity set has a lovely shepherd with two cute sheep to look after, and again you could print a bigger flock if you wanted to.
And of course no nativity scene would be complete without the Three Kings bearing gifts too!

How To Use Your Printable 3D Nativity Scene
1 – Print your nativity templates onto cardstock. There is a coloured nativity set and a black and white version which you can see above.
1 – To make the stable glue the left and right side panels onto the back panel using the tabs. (Make sure you align the sand dunes.) Then fold the side panels slightly forward to allow the stable to stand up.
2 – To make the palm trees glue the four leaves onto the top of the trunk. Next curl the side tabs around the back to make a tube and glue them together.
3 – All of the other pieces are simply made by curling the side tabs around to the back to make a tube and gluing them together.
