Teach kids the story of Jesus’s birth with these kid-friendly nativity sets for Christmas. Each is designed for kids to play with.
I have a few nativity sets that are plastic and perfect for children to play with. My little ones loved moving the pieces around throughout the holiday season.
I want to get a new one for my grandson to play with this year. Which of the sets is your favorite?
Nativity Sets for Christmas
In addition to reading the Christmas story (in book form or from the Bible), kids can use a kid-friendly nativity set to recreate the story themselves.
Let them use the figures to act out the story as you read it aloud. Or, let them use the playsets to sequence the story on their own.

Preschool Books About the Nativity
Fill your book basket with a great collection of books about the nativity. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.
If you have a hard time finding them, you can order them through my Amazon affiliate links by clicking the images below.
The Christmas Baby – When Mary and Joseph’s child was born, the good tidings spread from the animals in the manger, to the shepherds in the fields, to the kings in distant lands, and even to the angels in the heavens!
Christmas in the Manger – With a simple, lyrical text and radiant artwork, this book is perfect for the youngest child to be a part of the wonder of the Nativity.
The First Christmas – The First Christmas will fill you with the warmth and love of the true meaning of Christmas like nothing else will. With each poetic turn of the page, you will feel as though you are present in the stable in Bethlehem as the events of The First Christmas unfold, beginning with Isaiah’s proclamation of, “For unto us a child is born.”
When you set up a nativity felt story board, your kids can retell the story of Jesus’s birth over and over again.
Like the felt story board idea, a set of wooden nativity peg dolls also let kids retell the story over and over again.
