It doesn’t get any more Christ-centered than baby Jesus. Create this ornament with a candy cane, ribbon, yellow yarn, white fabric, and a small wood ball. See full instructions here.

Paper Plate Christmas Angel

This craft is perfect for little ones. Simply trace the shape onto a paper plate, cut it out, punch some holes, and add some glitter.

Gingerbread Nativity Scene

These Christ-Centered Christmas crafts are perfect for kids!

How cute is this?! Gingerbread houses are a tradition in many families, but what a wonderful way to keep it Christ-centered by creating a nativity scene!

Some materials you might need are graham crackers (or gingerbread), animal cookies, marshmallows, frosting, licorice, pretzel sticks, peanuts, white cardboard bases, candy, and Ziploc bags for piping frosting. You can see one family’s gingerbread nativity adventure and get full instructions here.

Star Of Bethlehem Ornament

These Christ-Centered Christmas crafts are perfect for kids!

These ornaments are beautiful, especially with the added Scripture. Not only that, but they’re easy to make and they point straight towards Christ!

All you need are standard clothespins, miniature clothespins, glue, ribbon or twine for hanging, and paper for the Scripture! Glitter is optional, depending on how brave you are! šŸ˜‰ Learn how to make them here.

Stained Glass Nativity

These Christ-Centered Christmas crafts are perfect for kids!

This nativity is beautiful and would be a treasure for years to come! Even young children could do this craft, and you could have older children create patterns with the colors.

You may have most of these supplies already at home. All you need for this nativity is contact paper, scissors, a nativity silhouette, and colorful tissue paper! Need instructions? Here they are!

Salt Dough Ornament – Nativity Scene

These Christ-Centered Christmas crafts are perfect for kids!

If you’re looking to make a salt dough ornament, this one is perfect for staying Christ-centered! I was unable to find the instructions on how to make this one, but I’ll share with you how to make a salt dough ornament.

To create a salt dough ornament, mix together 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of salt, and 1/2 cup of water until dough forms. Knead the dough, roll it out, and cut it into round shapes. While it’s still wet, press your child’s handprint into the ornament. Make the ornament hole, then bake at 250 degrees for 2 to 3 hours (until dry). After it dries, paint as desired. For this nativity scene, I would use paint pens so that I could get all the details.

Handprint Jesus In A Manger

These Christ-Centered Christmas crafts are perfect for kids!

This craft is perfect for kids of any age! It’s easy to do and can even be done independently by older kids, plus you probably have most of the supplies on hand already.

All you need is brown and yellow paint, white paper, a blue crayon, and a black marker. Find out how to put this all together here!

    Every year it seems harder to keep the Christ is Christmas, these crafts will really help! The baby Jesus candy cane is precious and I can’t even believe those stars are made of clothespins!

    These are such great ideas, and they turned out so awesome. Really like them all but the star and gingerbread nativity scene really caught my eye. We have so many decorations so at least the nativity scene would get eaten!
