Twas the Night Before "Christ"-mas - Nativity Activities for the Family

Twas the night before Christ-mas! While it is true that Santa is the highlight of Christmas for many people including my kids, I still want to make sure that we honor the true reason for Christmas, the birth of Jesus.
I mentioned to a girlfriend in passing that I was disappointed that I didn’t have a nativity. On my birthday she surprised me with this sweet little set she bought while travelling in Peru. It was such a thoughtful gift and one I’ll always treasure. It is perfect.

To get an idea how tiny it is, I put a Lego man in for this photo. A Ninja shepherd perhaps?

I’ve put together a group of easy nativity projects you can do with your kids today to remember the reason for Christmas and kick off your celebrations.
