The Wondrous Nativity


To help remind you and your family of the wondrous story of Jesus Christ’s birth (see Matthew 2:1–12; Luke 2:1–20), make this nativity scene. Then display it where others can enjoy seeing it during the Christmas season.

  1. 1.

    Glue pages F8–F9 and F12 to heavy paper.

  2. 2.

    Cut out the scenes on pages F8–F9 and F12, and cut the slits on pages F8–F9, as shown by the heavy black lines.

  3. 3.

    Fold the largest scene along the dotted lines so it will stand up.

  4. 4.

    Slide the baby Jesus scene into the largest scene’s slits as illustrated. Then add the other two scenes as illustrated.
