These Christ-Centered Christmas crafts and activities will add some fun to your holiday season and help the kids to focus on the real and only reason for this season – Jesus Christ!
It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here!
With a lot of focus being put on Santa and presents, it’s important to remember the true reason we celebrate Christmas: The Birth of Jesus.
Nativity crafts are great ways to bring the Scriptures retelling the birth of Jesus to life, in a hands-on way that kids can understand the true meaning of Christmas. Keep Christ at the center of Christmas and use these crafts to remind you that Jesus is the reason for this season.
No matter what their learning style is, kids always learn better when there is some kind of hands-on activity involved.
These Christian Christmas crafts and activities include Nativity crafts, kid-friendly scripture challenges, and edible Nativity activities! The crafts revolve around a variety of things surrounding the nativity including the manger, angels, and shepherds. They are great for prominently displaying around your home. In the midst of what can be a materialistic time of year, these simple activities can serve as a reminder of the birth of Jesus and keep your focus on Him.
Here Are 30+ Christ-Centered Christmas Crafts & Activites Your Kids Will Love & Learn From.
Countdown to Christmas, enjoy these activities with your family, and remember that “For unto us a child is born.” Use these activities to recount the story of the Nativity and remind your children that Christmas is all about the greatest gift the world ever received – Jesus!

Great ideas! Keeping these for next year!
These are amazing and affordable! Thanks so much for sharing!
Thanks for all the fun ideas! I’m done homeschooling, but I’ve been looking for hands on activities for my Sunday School class. These are perfect!
Thank you for the ideas. My kids love crafts and I find that I keep drawing blanks despite my history in daycare and preschool. This is helpful!
The stain glass nativity craft is beautiful! Thank you for sharing all of these ideas!
Thank you for all the great ideas!
I love the paper plate angels! We still have time to do them before Christmas.
Super easy and fun to do!
Wow! So man wonderful resources! What a great blog post.
Thank you, Liann!
I love all these ideas. We are taking a mini break from school next week and can’t wait to use some of these crafts.
This was great!
Love be these ideas and all you do here!!
Thank you so much, Bethany!! :*
And thanks for being part of this awesome community!
Thank you for all the different ideas and resources. I wish I had found this earlier…..there’s always next year 🙂
Yes!! Bookmark this page now and write the website in your planner so you don’t forget!
Lots of great ideas. Thanks!
So many wonderful ideas for my kids and grands! Love them!
Thank you, Denise! These crafts will surely keep them busy and help them focus on Jesus this Christmas. 🙂
I am so excited about all the homeschool from your website.
Thank you so much!!
Great ideas!! Thank you!!
You’re welcome, Clarissa!! 🙂
A lot of great ideas. I especially like the scavenger hunt. My kids would really enjoy it.
There’s a lot of nice ideas for advent activities on this site. I bought an Advent book last year and saved it for this year. It’s somewhat disappointing. My son loves scavenger hunts, so I’ll probably try that one this week. Thanks for the ideas!
Awesome, Amy! We are adding a free Advent resource every day until Christmas Day. So make sure you are getting the updates on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/theycallmeblessedblog/ 😀
Ana, I am always so blessed and encouraged by your blog. You are definitely in the right profession (homeschooling AND blogging!)! Needing to leave a comment for the giveaway gave me a great reason to let you know that I just think you do such an amazing job!
Serena, you don’t know how much this means to me! Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. :* Happy Thanksgiving!
How wouldn’t it bless our family? We would have Christmas covered for sure, with some extra money for the big trip we are taking to see family this Christmas.
I love all the craft ideas. Thank you.
It would help us pay off some emergency bills and pay for our new baby soon to come!
Love all of these great ideas! I used the stained glass nativity one for a preschool activity and it was a favorite!!
The giveaway would help, as we pay on medical expenses.
I love visiting your blog, and seeing wonderful ideas to enhance my daughter’s learning :-), and fun ideas for family time.
You are loved and appreciated. Thank you for being there,
Thank you so much for ALL the ideas! Wow, there’s somerting for everyone. I love the Xmas verse printables! And thx for the giveaway!
Such an incredible post, thank you! These are wonderful resources and I’m excited to incorporate some into our advent.
This would bless our family tremendously as this time of year is hard financially. God always provides for our basic needs, and for that I’m thankful. But having something extra would mean gifts and being able to plan fun family outings. Thank you for the chance!
Thank you, Amber! 🙂
Thank you for the list! I’ve experienced significant health issues during the latter half of this year, so timesavers like this are especially helpful (as the giveaway would also be for replenishing finances)!
This giveaway would bless my family as we catch up on bills and have Baby #3 due in a couple of weeks. My husband’s job switch a few months ago set us behind and we’re just now able to work on catching up. This would be a huge blessing to take a big chunk out of what we have left.
$500 would bless my family be giving us enough to host a bunch of people who have no family around on Christmas. We have no family gatherings this year on the 25th so we are hoping to do a meal with a few people who would be alone on Christmas otherwise. We are blessed through serving and could serve more people with this money!!
There are definitely several fun things we will be making this year! Thanks for posting these!
You’re so welcome, Michelle!
Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
It would really bless us. I would use it towards bills and holiday gifts for the kids. Thanks for the chance!
What a wonderful source of amazing activities for the Christmas season! I would be so blessed to win this giveaway, and to share the giveaway with others! <3 Blessings to you!
Thank you, Liz!!! I’m excited for the two families that we will this giveaway. It is truly a blessing!
The giveaway would be a great blessing because we have been having some car trouble so it would help with that and to be able to buy some things for christmas!!
Oh, that would be a huge blessing indeed!! 😀
Praying for God to supply all of your needs, Jessenia!
Thank you for the great ideas!
You’re so welcome, Marci! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed it.
What a delightful collection! I’ve got a lot on my plate between homeschooling, writing, music, and my own online ministry. It’s a gift to have so many fun ideas and resources already gathered for me.
Thank you, Ana.
Thank you, Cheri!! I am so glad you liked it. 😀
Love all the ideas. The giveaway would be a blessing to my family in that we would be able to create memories together.
We use the Charlotte Mason method, and I also celebrate Jesus, not Santa, so this would be perfect for our family. There is so much here! Wow!
Our church has a ton of under-privileged families and we’d love to adopt some of them as our own.
Thanks for the tips! We bought a lego-type Nativity scene one year for super cheap at the Christian bookstore and the kids loved it.
It will allow me to buy gifts for more than close family.
These are some great ideas. I knew about a few of them such as the Crippled Lamb. I love the section with ideas to do crafts and the suggestions. These come in handy with children who like to do art projects, especially for gifts.
I’m so glad you like the ideas, Jessica!! And don’t forget to enter for a chance to win the giveaway. I just added also a few suggestions for Nativity decor and gifts on the bottom of the post. 🙂
Oh my goodness! This post has so many amazing ideas and resources it’s hard to even know where to start!!! I didn’t even know NaturExplorers had a holiday version! And that Hope Deck is GORGEOUS!! Have you ever read Jotham’s Journey? That is one of our favourite advent books!
Oh, so many amazing resources, right?? I heard of Jotham’s Journey! Abraham’s Advent is my personal favorite Advent devotional – oh my goodness, Nadine, you need to do it this year. I always lead a weekly discussion at my Bible Journaling Facebook group. 😀
