Celebrating Christmas Together: Nativity and Three Kings Plays with Stories and Songs
Create the wonder of Christmas with your children at school or at home—starting with a simple Advent Calendar and Crib Scene. The Nativity Play is spell binding—whether told as a story in verse, narrated as children act the parts, or performed entirely by children.
This Christmas treasury includes the Nativity Play, with staging directions and instructions for simple costumes and props; songs and music to accompany the play; how to create a Crib scene; making an Advent Calendar; the Three Kings Play and Christmas stories.
