Have fun by dressing up as the characters from the Nativity story.
Visit some charity shops to look for bits and pieces that could be used in different ways. Scarves and dressing gowns for example. You could make tunics out of pillowcases and headdresses with tea towels and a ring of elastic. You could download props from an Etsy shop like these.
As you make your outfits, chat about why you’ve chosen each character and what you think they may have been like. What part do they play in the story? Could we leave them out and still have all the story we need?
Get your whole family to dress up and take a photo – perfect for Christmas cards or just some funny pictures!
Or act out the story as you read it from a book, the Bible or the mini-book which comes with the Sticker Advent Calendar.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you could pose a series of pictures to create different scenes of the Christmas story. You could make these into your own album or print them on canvases and display them each Christmas.
This would be fun to do as part of a Christmas activity event, setting up a photo booth for families to dress up and pose in for their photos.
