Celebrate the birth of our precious Lord alongside your kiddos with our free nativity coloring sheets!

The Reason for the Season

While Santa and gifts under the tree can be fun holiday traditions this time of year, the true reason for the season in most Christian households is celebrating the miraculous birth of our Lord and Savior.

From reading through the entire book of Luke to setting out our family nativity scene, I love absolutely everything about this season, you guys!

Carved Nativity Scene

All that said, if you are a mom with younger kiddos, teaching the true meaning of Christmas can be a difficult task! 

It’s so incredibly easy to get caught up in the lights, the treats, and the fun.

However, leaning on family Christmas devotions and incorporating other Christian values into your daily life can help you find that center we all so desperately need during this hectic season.

One of the most simplistic ways to keep Christ in Christmas is by displaying a nativity scene in your home, which leads me to our newest free printable for the kiddos!

Away in a Manger Coloring Page

Encourage your children to stay Christ-centered this holiday season through our free nativity coloring pages!

I created this first coloring page to be a simplistic coloring activity fit for all attention spans.

By skipping the fine details and leaning solely on the manger.

Pair this simplistic coloring page with our free printable Christmas star for even more holiday fun! 

Nativity Coloring Scene

While our away in a manger nativity coloring sheet is simple and to the point, our main nativity coloring page is a meaningful tribute to our Savior.

This nativity coloring page is complete with baby Jesus beside his parents, a starry backdrop, and a key Bible verse to help children understand why we celebrate the season.

From the Sunday school classroom to at-home use, this printable is perfect for all ages!

Nativity Scene Coloring Sheet

As a former preschool Sunday school teacher and private school kindergarten classroom assistant, I love creating free printables for little hands.

This nativity scene is perfect to use with multiple different age groups and skill levels.

From scribbles to in-depth coloring.

Simply let your kiddos color and hang on the fridge or take things up a notch by encouraging them to memorize the key scripture verse.

Either way, I truly hope this freebie brings a blessing to your home this holiday season!

Hey guys! I’m Mary, homeschool mom of 3 amazing kiddos.

I’m so excited that you decided to check out my little corner of the world!

If you have been following our journey for any length of time, you already know that I’m obsessed with coffee, organization, and all things simple.

I’m also a huge dog lover and introvert 💗

My homeschool style is very eclectic.

I enjoy a solid mixture of structure and free range. I set goals for myself and my children each week, but I put no pressure on perfection.

We use a wide variety of curriculum in our home.

Some of our current favorites are The Good and the Beautiful, Life of Fred, Beautiful Feet Books, and Lifepac.

While my kids do spend a good amount of time learning at desks, they also spend countless hours exploring their creativity and practicing a little independence.

I love mountains, rainy days, and sitting by the campfire. 

Our family recently relocated to the PNW and we have been enjoying finding new nature spots to explore together 🙌🏼

I can’t wait to connect and share all the things I’ve learned on our new journey! 

Just a Note…

Thanks for checking out the kid activities portion of the blog! 

Typically summer is the most productive time for my blog. However, our family is currently living in temporary housing and we do not see an end in sight (thank you housing marking 😪) — meaning my workspace & supplies to produce quality content it extremely limited.

I am still working, but it’s nothing like normal.

As always, we appreciate your patience!
