One of my very favorite Christmas traditions is acting out the nativity story as a family on Christmas Eve. When I was a little girl, I was always so excited to get to play Mary and ride on the donkey’s (AKA- my dad’s) back. There’s just something about acting it out that makes the story come to life! Now that I have a family of my own, I love passing on the same memories to my own children.

And this year, making these precious memories is easier than ever with our…

We know how crazy the holidays can get, and we wanted to share a special gift with our readers that would help bring the real spirit of Christmas into your homes. So we asked Lynette and Stephanie Garner, the crazy talented illustrators over at SingAStory, if they would design these nativity printables for us. And boy, did they deliver! Just for you, they created a 15 PAGE PACK of gorgeous nativity masks and props. That’s right- 15 PAGES! {If you use them, please stop by their facebook page to wish them a “Merry Christmas” and give them a quick “thank you!” We don’t know what we would do without our designers!} Ready to see what’s included in your pack?

Act out the nativity story on Christmas Eve with free printable masks

Is this not the cutest little Christmas family you ever did see?!

The Three Wisemen Printable Masks

I just love how the colors of the Wisemen coordinate with their gifts. Those SingAStory ladies thought of everything!

Nativity Shepherd Costume for Christmas Pageant

Just open up to Luke 2: 1-20 in your Bible and have the family act it out as you read along.

Christmas Angel and Star

OR if you’d rather, you can print off this nativity script complete with songs.

Act Out the Nativity Story - Christmas Family Traditions

If you have a small family, each person will get to play multiple roles OR just invite all the cousins, grandchildren, and/or neighbors over and make a whole event out of it. Totally up to you! There are masks and props for 10 different people. But if you have more that that, just print out extra copies of the animal, shepherd and angel masks.

This would also make a FABULOUS family Christmas gift for extended family, friends, and neighbors with young children! 

OR if you really want to make a whole family activity out of it, you can even…

Color Your Own Nativity Masks!

Yep, the SingAStory gals are sharing TWO different versions for you to choose from. For a quick and easy option, just print our colored masks. For a fun family craft, print our black and white masks and color your own!

{This would also be a perfect option for a Christmas church lesson if you teach a class of young kids at church like I do. Let the kids color the masks while you tell the nativity story, then act it out as a class.}

*TIP: When printing, make sure you select “fit to page.” Also, the eye holes are sized for young children. For teenagers and adults you might need to cut the holes a little larger.

  1. My family LOVES this set!!! Thank you so much to the ladies at Sing A Story as well as the Divas for providing it as a free printable! Such a fun addition to our Christmas!

  2. Dear Dating Divas,
    Thank you for all your great ideas. I am the resource person for our children department at the church I go to we have over 600 children and I am sure several of the teachers will love this craft idea (nativity masks) Love Christmas….Love Jesus and so grateful to you for sharing this wonderful idea and all your suggestions for keeping Christ in Christmas. Merry Christmas to you Kathy Behgm

    1. Oh Kathy! We are so very happy that you love it and for your sweet words. We love the holiday season and all of the excitement it brings but we here at The Dating Divas always want to make sure our focus is always on what’s most important. Keeping Christ in Christmas is definitely one of them. Have a lovely day! XO

  3. I am trying desperately to download this file of the nativity masks for an activity tomorrow, and it isn’t downloading. Is there any way I can get the file emailed to me? I knew I wanted to do it, but I waited until the last minute to print it out.

    1. Hmmmm… I’m not sure what the trouble is. I just checked and it’s working on my end BUT we definitely want to make sure you get them for your activity tomorrow. I’ll shoot you an email. 🙂 MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  4. Seriously awesome! just what I needed! Thank you so much. I wanted a fun and friendly way to make the nativity relevent in my town this Christmas and you’ve made it happen. Street party, Christmas breakup, even Christmas Day – here we come!

  5. I love this idea! I am going to use this with my grandchildren on Christmas Eve. Won’t their parents be surprised! I love that it focuses on the true meaning of Christmas! Thanks.
    I have a couple of questions, First, what is the best way to attach the craft sticks to the laminated masks? and second, is there a mask for Herod? There is a part for him in the play, but I don’t see a mask that would work. Any suggestions??

    1. So glad that you will be able to use these, Lynn! We’ve used them the last two years on Christmas Eve and it’s become such a great tradition. To answer your first question, you can either use hot glue or just packaging tape. And secondly, no- there is not a mask specifically for Herod unfortunately. We just printed an extra wiseman mask and it seemed to work okay.

  6. Thank you so much for these wonderful nativity masks! I plan to read Luke 2 to the Second Grade Sunday School class as the children act out the parts. I think it will be great fun for them. Beautiful masks!!
