The kids will love creating this Toilet Paper Roll Christmas Craft Nativity set and printable! Such a simple, fun, and darling way to display the Christmas Nativity!
A Simple Nativity Craft
Each year at Christmas when I bring out my nice Nativity set, my kids always want to play with it but I am terrified of them breaking one of the pieces. With this fun toilet paper roll craft they can play with it all day, every day. And if they happen to ruin it, just print out another set and have them make another one.
I love how this toilet paper roll Christmas craft turned out! The colors are wonderful, and my kids absolutely adore them. And bonus: it’s a nativity they can play with, and can’t break! This simple craft is super easy to make, and costs next to nothing! Something your Christmas budget will thank you for. 😉

It doesn’t get simpler than that! This craft is a great way to get the kids involved in creating something fun during Christmas. Each piece of the Nativity set is super adorable. Our richly colorful set includes Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus:

An adorable sheep with his shepherd. If you want multiple sheep, you can print off as many as you like!

Toilet Paper Roll Nativity Printable
The kids loved building a stable with some wooden blocks, and even started adding their own animals to the scene. What a great way to help kids remember the reason we celebrate Christmas! How do you help your children remember what Christmas is all about? We’d love to hear what you do, so leave us a comment below and let us know! Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday Season!

This activity was perfect for Children’s Church. I presented it after I told the class The Mystery of Christmas story (from Godly Play). I was surprised to learn it will be the first “Nativity” set some of them will have in their home! So, we have a request for missing figures to add to the set: Please consider adding a donkey and a cow for the Christmas scene, and then Jesus as a toddler plus a camel, so they can change the set on January 6, Epiphany, when the magi arrive two years later.
Thanks, I’m so glad your class liked it and they were able to have their very own set!
Did you print your pictures on photo paper- your pictures are so shiny?
Hi Debra! They are so nice, right? We take them to FedEx (Kinkos) and have them printed out on 32lb paper. Their printers just make it look super nice, but the quality of the paper makes it pop even more. 🙂 Our store charges around 60+ cents a copy for that paper weight, and I love that I can just upload it on their website and schedule a pick up (just click the custom print button). Hope that helps! 🙂
Do you recommend laminating these printables?
Too cute…thank you
These are great! I would love if you would consider a grayscale or outline version that kids could color in first. Just to give them more to do and to make more personal. But these are super cute!
This is on our to do list! Great idea! 🙂
ME ENCANTA, MUCHAS GRACIAS
