10 Child-Friendly Nativity Sets Your Children Will Love {& Help Them to Focus on Christ}



Dear Mama, I know that Christmas has got you all in a swirl! But I also know that your heart is to teach your children the true meaning of Christmas and that it wouldn't get lost in all the hustle and bustle that the holidays bring.

Let me just say thatI am right there with you!

So as I thought about some easy ways to share how we can do that WITHOUT getting overwhelmed, I remembered how much my little daughter loved playing with her nativity set last year and would play for hours with it and she learned who baby Jesus was and had some interactive play with Joseph, Mary, and animals, etc.  So I thought I would share a few lovely sets for your children here for you in case you would like to get them one too (and also helps to protect Mom's more expensive Nativity display that she doesn't want touched)!

This one gets listed first because when she first turned three she loved it. The star lights up and makes music too so that is a fun feature for little ones. 

1. Fisher Price Little People A Christmas Story







2. Melissa and Doug Wooden Christmas Set with 4 Piece Stable and 11 Wooden Figures



This one also comes as an optional bundle set with Wooden Tree Advent Calendar too!



3. Star From Afar {Christian Alternative to Elf on a Shelf)


















5. Oskar & Ellen Hand Sewn Soft Nativity Fabric Nativity Set - It's nice that these are fabric and soft for little ones to play with. 
































Which one is your favorite?

I hope this list is a blessing to you!

I'm partial to the flannel board. I loved Colorforms as a kid so I would've loved the flannel. I also taught 3's in pre-school for about 6 yrs. They LOVED the flannel board stories because they could participate by putting up a part of it.

We have the nesting dolls one -- Baby Jesus is so tiny!! Anytime the children actually play with the set I worry we will lose some of the pieces.

Also, a really cute nativity set that we don't have but I still think is beautiful and child friendly is the Shining Light Dolls Nativity set -- https://shininglightdolls.com/collections/nativity-collection/products/the-complete-nativity-set

The set has both a pregnant Mary and Mary with the baby Jesus!
