Printable Nativity Scenes

Today we spent about twenty minutes during school-time listening to Christmas music and making Christmas presents for our sponsored kids. I scoured the internet for printable nativity scenes because I saw someone somewhere in the vast expanse of the blogosphere who sent a nativity scene to their sponsored kids and I have always wanted to do the same thing!

Printable Nativity Scenes for Sponsored Kids
I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to nativity scenes and many of them are printable. I picked this adorable one from Hart of the Mountain. They are kind of finger-puppets/playing cards. Regardless, they are super cute AND available in black and white or full-color.

Printable Nativity Scenes for Sponsored Kids

Lydia colored with gusto while Asa colored the white sheep. (He’s a hard worker, I tell ya’.)

We’re going to laminate them and add a little loop of paper to the back. We also sent a special gift to our sponsored kids. $25 each. That’s it. And I know from years past that $25 can buy things like bicycles, clothes, grain and more. They usually send us a picture of the gift. I can’t wait to see what they get!

Have you written your sponsored kids this month? Why not send them a Christmas gift? There are tons of free downloads out there! Grab a fun one and send it today to make sure it arrives in time for Christmas.




  1. These are so cute! I sent my child something similar- a nativity sticker scene from Oriental Trading and a printed out copy of the Christmas story from the bible in her language so she can put the story picture together herself.

  2. What a great idea! I’m definitely doing this. 🙂

  3. These are SO cute!! Love it! We sent some made-by-our-kids nativity scenes to our Sponsor kids a couple years ago, along with the Christmas story written out in their language, & they all really appreciated it. I think I’m going to get my kids coloring to send these new ones this year. Thanks for sharing!! 🙂 I always love hearing your ideas!

  4. The printable nativity is a great idea! I’ve been going nuts trying to find something to send our Compassion child. I sent a cash gift, but wanted to send something in my letter as well! Thanks for the suggestion!

  5. Printing out right now. 🙂

  6. Just signed up for your emails a few days ago:) The printables are adorable. As I was slinking around your “archives” I happened upon The Little House party….OmGosh!!! We will be starting the little house series very soon. AnnnnD my dd will be turning 6 in 3.5 months

  7. Love your site. Love love your Christmas ideas. Need some help with a small church simple all age group Christmas program. Any thing come to mind?? No I have’t prayed about it that much but you came straight to my heart when I was approached.
    Thanks for creating a great faith filled blog!

  8. My kids just completed this for our Compassion kids – thanks so much for the wonderful idea! Question: how did you attach the paper loop on the back?

  9. Thanks for doing all the hard work of looking for printable natitivty scenes.
    I am going to use these in our preschool and K/1 Sunday School Classes.

  10. These would look amazing modpodged or glazed onto wooden blocks! Thank you for the printable!
