Free Christmas Nativity Printable Masks

I don’t know about you, but 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 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. Whether you already have this tradition or would like to start, we wanted to create super fun nativity printable masks for kids! With this free printable nativity scene, you will be able to bring the story to life for your family!

A classic Christmas tradition with a twist! Can't wait to use these nativity printable masks with my family this Christmas! :) #FreePrintableMasks

These nativity masks will be a hit for the whole family! We have made these free printable masks two different ways. We have a pack already colored and ready for you to print out, cut out, and act out! OR if you would really like to make this a family activity, we have included a black and white pack of these free printable masks for kids to color! Just print, grab all your coloring supplies, and have a blast with your whole family coloring, chatting, and making new Christmas traditions. 😉

Free Printable Nativity Masks

We know how crazy the holidays can get, and we wanted to share this free printable nativity scene with our readers that would help bring the real spirit of Christmas into your homes. 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!

What’s included in your printable nativity scene pack?

  • Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus
  • The Three Wise Men with their Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh
  • The Innkeeper, a Shepherd, a Sheep, and a Donkey
  • An Angel and the Christmas Star

All you have to do is print, cut, laminate, and attach each nativity printable to a craft stick! And voila- you’re ready for your own little family Christmas pageant with this free printable nativity scene!

How to use your Printable Masks

Once you have your free printable masks printed, cut, laminated, and attached to a craft stick, you are ready to start acting out your printable nativity scene! Just open up to Luke 2: 1-20 in your Bible and have the family act it out as you read along. OR if you’d rather, you can print off this nativity script complete with songs.

Printable masks for families

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. {Remember, these are PERFECT printable masks for kids! They will LOVE them} Totally up to you! There are printable masks and nativity printable props for 10 different people. But if you have more than 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!

Color Your Own Nativity Masks

Yep, that’s right! Remember I mentioned the printable masks to color!? The SingAStory gals are sharing TWO different versions for you to choose from. For a quick and easy option, just print our free colored printable masks. For a fun family craft, print our black and white printable masks for kids and color your own!

Printable Masks for kids to color

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 printable masks while you tell the nativity story, and then act it out as a class. This is such a fun activity; all the kids will be wanting to do it again! 🙂

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.

This will quickly turn into a new Christmas tradition for your family if it isn’t a tradition already. Talking about Christmas traditions, check out this post about Christmas Eve traditions for your family. Also, check out 101 Christmas traditions for couples!

  1. I just wanted to thank you for all the wonderful ideas and for posting really awesome things like the Nativity masks for FREE!!! Most people charge for EVERYTHING now days, and these are really beautiful! I’m going to use them for Primary music time and for our Family Christmas Eve. Thank you so much!!!

  2. I love these nativity masks. We made a set for our church and used them in our Christmas program a few years back and are using them again this year. Thank you so much for sharing them and for sharing them for free!! ❤️

  3. We acted out the nativity every Christmas Eve when I was a little girl. This brings back so many fond memories! Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. 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!!

  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. 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!

  7. 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!
