Nativity Scenes are a lovely traditional part of getting ready for Christmas. As well as being a great decorative item they can also be super toys, giving kids the chance to talk through and act out the story of the nativity which so many of them will have the chance to be part of at school at this time of year. Of course with a bit of imagination the characters will probably get up to all sort of other things too!
If you want the kids to get hands on with your nativity set then it’s import to choose carefully. You don’t want anything that is likely to break or that might be a choking hazard. Natural materials with no sharp points are the way to go. Luckily there are plenty to choose from. I’ve collected up some of the best to share with you today and one lucky reader will have the chance to win their own set from the lovely folks at Born Gifted.
My personal favourite! We just love this fabric Nativity Scene from Swedish Toy Company Oskar & Ellen. A delightful piece which is perfect for any young child. It has an opening stable door and 10 play pieces. Your child will take great pleasure in re-enacting the Nativity story this Christmas. If you’d like the chance to win a set check out our giveaway below.
A shabby chic style Nativity set that consists of 11 wooden figures including the Stable arch and is hand carved and hand painted with non-toxic water based dyes so no two pieces are exactly alike.
This delightful Fair Trade wooden nativity scene is perfect for the little ones to play with. The set comes presented in a wooden box which doubles as the stable and includes a bright yellow star to stick to the top of the stable.
