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. Glue pages 24–25 and 28 to heavy paper.

  2. Cut out the scenes. On the largest scene cut the slits, as shown by the heavy black lines.

  3. Fold the largest scene along the dotted lines so it will stand up and the roof will fold down.

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