Christmas Song Nativity

Put together a nativity scene on the blackboard as you sing Christmas songs.  Print and cut out the document below.  Write a song name and page number on the back of each one (my suggestions are listed).  One by one, have the children choose a piece to place on the board.  Sing the songs as you go.

If your kids don't know enough songs, you can bring Hymnals in for the older children. Ask younger children to sing "ooooh," like an angel if they don't know the words. Many children will know the words from home and almost all of the children will recognize the melodies enough to sing along. 

The First Noel, Hymns 213

Away in a Manger 42

With Wondering Awe Hymns #210

Once Within a Lowly Stable #41

When Joseph Went to Bethlehem #38

Shepherd's Carol #40

you choose

NOTE:  By request, I've added a male angel (I don't know why I didn't have any?).  Unfortunately, I didn't have time to add him to the document.  If you want to use him, just right click on the image above, copy and paste into a document, then size as necessary.  


  1. I love this so much!!! Can't wait to do this in singing time, AND at home!!! Any chance you could add a sheep or two (you know, in your spare time, lololol)?

  2. :) Sheep and a donkey are on the agenda, but I'm also getting ready to move to another country, so we'll have to see.
