Colour In Nativity Craft


share this:

A fun set of 12 hand-drawn nativity characters for you to create your own nativity scene! Simply print, decorate with your favourite art materials, cut out and then glue along the edge and roll up to create each character. Contains the following printable characters: angel, baby Jesus in manger, cow, donkey, Mary, Joseph, sheep, 2 shepherds and 3 wise men / kings. Average size of completed character: 10cm tall. All images are 300 dpi for best quality printing.

  1. Print the characters onto your choice of paper (a medium weight smooth paper or cardstock works well).
  2. Colour your characters using your choice of art materials!
  3. Cut out the nativity characters and then glue along the tab (don’t fold the tab as that will create a ridge in your finished character). I prefer to use double sided tape or a glue stick.
  4. Roll the base of the cone round with the tab on the inside and stick together. You might find it easiest to do this on a flat surface to help your character stand up straight! Glue the angel wings to the back of the angel once assembled.
OPTIONAL EXTRAS: You might like to finish off your nativity characters with some extra embellishment! You could add some straw to the manger, some glitter glue to the wise men’s gifts or some cotton wool to create extra fluffy sheep! You could also create your own stable using an old box to complete your nativity scene. 
Two download versions are included for your convenience:
  • Zip file containing individual PNG and JPEG files for each cone (ideal for resizing the cones, or for printing lots of the same design!)
  • Ready-to-print PDF file (perfect to just print and craft!)

For a quick and easy pre-coloured version of this craft you might like the MY NATIVITY version of this craft! You can also save on both versions with the NATIVITY CRAFT BUNDLE!
