Day 17 – Attend a Live Nativity

by Kelsey Norwood

in Celebrations, Routines, & Traditions


Many cities put on a live Nativity event. Check to see if that happens in your city and attend. Bring hot chocolate and wear warm clothes!

If you don’t have a live Nativity in your city, act it out with your family. You’ll need

  • Mary
  • Joseph
  • Baby Jesus (a doll)
  • A shepherd
  • A wise man (or woman)
  • An angel

If you have more people than that in your family you could double up on shepherds and wise men or add a donkey and a camel. Kids love acting out the story – it might be better if you read it through first and then act it out with the narration.

I love this idea of a family play of the nativity. What fun!
