It's not easy to find Christian Christmas crafts for kids, in a world that is obsessed with the "festive' and holiday season! It is often a constant battle to keep our own eyes focused on Jesus, never mind keeping our kids' eyes focused on Him!
With 3 kids of my own, I have done my fair share of searching for
nativity-based Christmas activity ideas that kids will enjoy. This page
is a mixture of my own resources/activities as well as those created by
This page is a work in progress and will be added to as time goes by - but for now, just click on the links to view the section of the page you are interested in! I've also added some advent devotionals that I have used over the years.

Kids Bible Teacher has some simple, but effective, Christian Christmas crafts for kids
This free Christmas ornament with the Names of Jesus is a great activity for parents to do with their kids.
Have your children cut out the circles (20 of them spread over 2 pages) and then you can help them fold the circles along the marked line, and paste them together to make a lovely paper Christmas ornament.
This is not the best activity to use with a large class unless you have one adult for every 2 kids LOL as the sticking is rather time consuming, but it is great for smaller groups.
A simpler activity for a large group of kids would be the free Christmas bookmarks - your child can simply color them in and cut them out!
My (mostly) nativity-themed Christmas cutting templates will give your child lots of cutting practice with lovely end products to build your child’s confidence.
Okay, technically these are not Christmas crafts, but if you are generally looking for Christian Christmas activities for kids, then you may be interested in the pack of word searches I created specifically with a nativity theme.
Word searches are a great way to help kids work on figure-ground perception and visual discrimination skills, and these Bible-based nativity-themed word searches can help build those skills.
The word search topics include Isaiah 9:6, the angel's message to Joseph, to Mary and to the shepherds, the birth of Jesus, the visit of the Magi, Zechariah and Elizabeth, and Simeon's Song, among others.
This was my favorite Christmas resource when my kids were little! The focus of this e-book is on Bible-based lessons and crafts that bring out the real meaning of Christmas.
There are 24 lessons with matching Christian Christmas crafts for kids of preschool age, but if you don’t have time to do a daily lesson and craft, the author helpfully shows how you can mix and match lessons to fit your schedule.
The crafts are photographed and instructions are clear. They make use of easily available resources.
These hands-on Christian Christmas crafts are accessible to young children, and will create lasting memories for them.
We still have some
of these decorations on our tree even though my kids are teens now!
This e-book is a fantastic choice if you are looking to do daily or regular devotions as a family to focus on the true meaning of Christmas.
Well, Tauna over at the Proverbial Homemaker, has put together a lovely advent devotional on the Names of Jesus that I wish I had access to a few years back! This is a great resource if you want everything in one place!
With this printable advent devotional you will get:
This is a thoughtful and encouraging advent devotional, one that you can use over and over again each year!
What I do is cut up the daily readings and put them into our wooden advent calendar with doors (like this one on Amazon) #Ad, with little chocolates.
Each morning one of my kids opens a door, to get the reading and the
chocolate. I'll be honest, we don't manage to sit down and do the
readings every day, so there are days when we do a couple at a time to
catch up! But it is so worth the effort to create a tradition like this!
