Most of my Christmas decorations are "hands off" for the Kendall Girl. Love her heart, all these fun and shiny new things that she's not allow to touch.
It kind of makes me feel sorry for her! But this is one Christmas decoration that is meant to be played with. A Kid friendly nativity set.
We have this one:
It is the Beginner's Bible Nativity Set. They can be a bit pricey but what a great way to teach your kid the true story of Christmas. I got ours half price at Hobby Lobby. Since the pieces are smaller, this is a monitored activity. I just talk with her about Baby Jesus, and the shepherds, and wise men, etc. In all reality, I'm starting this super young, and she is obviously not retaining it. But it's something I've dreamed of doing with my kids for years. I saw this pin on pinterest the other day:
Hopefully in coming years this nativity set will use this set to retell the birth of Christ.
When I put up my Christmas Decor I'll store these until next year.
Here are some other cute kid-friendly nativity options:

I hope you will come back often this month. I'm excited about this fun series!
P.S. Just in case anyone is interested (and has A LOT of $), I'd love the Willow Tree Nativity Set for myself. :)
