FREE Printable Nativity Craft

Y'all.  This may be my favorite craft project of all time.  

I was cleaning out my craft closet the other night and came across an old planner where I had doodled a nativity scene in the margins.  I decided to redraw them a bit larger (and with a few additional people) and make them printable...

.... I colored the set in yesterday while watching The Mandalorian with Luke and then cut them out...

.... ran them through my laminator and cut them out again.  I rolled out some little balls of air-drying modeling clay to act as the bases and LOOK HOW CUTE!!!

I'm going to put this one on my bookcase in my classroom and I printed off pages for Mason and Griffin to color next week during break to make their own.  I AM OBSESSED!!!

Here are my rambling thoughts about them....

- Have your kids watercolor paint them

- Do one (or two) pieces a day leading up to Christmas

- Have each member of your family color/paint a few pieces to make a complete set

- put magnets on the back of them to create a fridge nativity

- punch holes in them and create a set of Christmas ornaments

- if you have a whiteboard, put magnets on the backs and then draw a manger/scene around them

- since it's just paper you could prep all of the pieces (color, laminate, cut) and then mail them to family/friends who you aren't able to see this year as a gift!

They're fun, right???  I am seriously so excited about how they turned out and can't wait to see how my kids make theirs come to life next week!

So, here's the deal.  I have NEVER ever charged for a printable... dozens of free valentines, doodle towns, stationary, etc. because I've always considered it a little thank you gift from me to you.  

I have people tell me constantly that they would totally pay for them SOOOOO this time around they're still free but if you print and love them and would like to make a donation 100% of the money will go to an organization near and dear to us - The McKinney Little Free Pantry.  I just thought that if there is even a small way that I can turn this into a blessing for others then I should do it! So... print, use, love, enjoy and if you can give GREAT and if you can't that's totally fine too!

My paypal is and my venmo is @Andrea-McAnally-1 (it's a picture of me holding my poop emoji trophy for losing fantasy football).  $1, $5, $10... whatever you want is AWESOME and then next week (more than likely Monday) we'll take the money and go buy what the pantry is in need of.  I'll share pictures and the totals and all of that when we purchase the food/toiletries and all of those items get distributed to pantries all over McKinney where people can come and take what they need. 

I appreciate y'all SO MUCH and hope you and your family have as much fun with this project as I did.  I would LOVE to see pictures of what you do with the printable so when you're done email them to me at
