Materials: Stage, props, costumes, and seating

Time: About one hour

Get everyone-kids and parents-involved in your Christmas celebration with this interactive nativity play.

Create a nativity scene on your stage. Place easy-to-wear costumes for Mary, Joseph, Jesus, angels, shepherds, Magi, cows, sheep, and a donkey around the scene.

Kids love our Sunday School resources!

Invite your congregation to attend this nativity event. Recruit a volunteer or your pastor to read aloud the Christmas story. The narrator will need to pause during key points and invite audience members to join the set. Willing audience members will join the nativity set, put on their costumes, and act out their parts. At the end of the event, have everyone sing Christmas hymns.

For the best success, don’t place limits on your participants such as gender, age, or even the number of people. You’ll find that most love getting involved and have a great time improvising in this joyful rendition of Jesus’ birth.
