Back in 2012, my daughter Lara and I created a Nativity puppet show. This year I have updated it to share with you as a wonderful family activity for the festive season.
We created rod & wire puppets, but simple hand puppets would work just as well. There are animals, props and backdrops patterns, templates, instructions and suggestions. The script is written in rhyming couplets so that it is easier for young children to memorize. A parent or older child who is good at reading aloud acts as narrator.

Our hand puppets have been enormously popular and have lasted for years!
We recycled them for other plays such as our Esther Play for Purim.
