The Christmas Story Nativity Lunch (+ FREE Printable Scriptures to Read Aloud)

I don’t know how things are in your home, but over here snacks and meals are a pretty frequent occurrence. I have a feeling I’m not alone, because little growing bodies love to eat! Over the last month or so I have been slowly reading through The Lifegiving Table (affiliate link), which I HIGHLY recommend by the way. I have been challenged and encouraged to look at mealtime through a new lens. So much life, goodness, and discipleship can happen at our tables if we are intentional about creating the space for it. I’ve learned firsthand that kiddos are more likely to retain information when it involves a snack. This upcoming year I am hoping to use snacks and meals more intentionally which is why I’m so excited to share this Christmas Story Nativity Lunch idea with you!

This is so easy to put together and it gives your little one(s) the opportunity to build their own lunch (or snack) with the ingredients. Feel free to sub out ingredients based on what you have and your child’s dietary restrictions. To make this extra easy for you, I have put together a printable (FREE download below) so you can read the Christmas Story aloud as your kiddo(s) put together their lunch.

It was so fun to watch Bridgett put together the nativity and to see the parts of the story begin to click as she set it up. I was amazed at the questions she asked as she engaged with the story. Hooray for hands on activities!

When I saw these Bible Verse Advent Cards I fell in love with how kid-friendly they are and that the vocabulary was easy to understand especially for younger kiddos. I chose to use the same translation (the International Children’s Bible and the Easy Reader’s Version of the Bible) for the printable I created. Once you print out the free printable, you can read along with the story and create the nativity lunch as you go.
