Need a child proof Nativity set for this Advent season? I have a few ideas for you.
You could always play it safe and simple, by picking up a Fisher Price Nativity Set. These are cute and durable, but I prefer something a little more unique.

Last Christmas, my very best friend made us a nativity set out of scrapbook paper and wood. I love this set, and it’s virtually indestructible – Baby Jesus took many a ride down our stairs last year, without a scratch.
This year, I want to make a set myself, not for display purposes, but for using in homeschooling activities. These Nativity Dolls are incredibly versatile. You could glue them to toilet paper rolls, as in the photo, to make them stand. I’m planning on laminating mine, then adding velcro in order to use them on a felt board. Another version could have magnets on the back, to use on a cookie sheet.This would be an excellent gift for families with small children.
For those of you that are more crafty, this Etsy hand sewn Nativity Set is adorable. Looking for Nativity crafts? Don’t forget to check out Oriental Trading Company for stickers, craft kits, costumes and more.
