FREE Nativity Play Dough Mats

I could not think of a more FUN and CREATIVE way to narrate the Christmas Story than to build the character themselves with play dough.

Read Luke 2, put on some Christmas Music, and just let the kids have fun. It’s a great activity to do while you are filling out your Christmas planner or Christmas cards.

My four-year old had so much fun with these and even got her older brothers to join in on the fun.

There are (9) play dough mats consisting of a letter outline for letter formation practice with the beginning initial of the characters in Luke 2, as well as the animals.

  • Jesus
  • Mary
  • Joseph
  • Wise Man
  • Shepherd
  • Sheep
  • Camel
  • Donkey
  • Angel

Just print the pages and laminate them and watch the Christmas Story come alive with your children. You might want to print these hands on Nativity printables, too.

I created these printables for my email subscribers. Fill out the form below and you will receive the pdf via email. Please be sure to check your spam folder. I create several weekly freebies for my email subscribers, so you always have something to look forward it.


I hope your kiddos enjoy these nativity play dough mats as much as mine did.

  2. Thank you for this, looking forward to this with the kids. Still having trouble downloading them. Any ideas?

    Thanks and God bless you

  3. This is a fantastic idea. Can’t figure out how to download the mats though.
