Looking for a LEGO Nativity scene? You won’t find one, but you can build your own Nativity scene with instructions to build a Nativity scene.
When my kids were young, they loved to build! We had an entire LEGO city constructed in the dormer of our upstairs house. There were houses, shops, pirate ships, and minifigures galore.
What I really would have loved? Bible sets to build like a LEGO Nativity scene. Alas, that isn’t the kind of build available. BUT… with a bunch of bricks and some simple photo instructions (which I’m providing for you), your kids can build a Nativity scene of their very own.
There’s even a challenge to create additional figures and animals!
LEGO Nativity of the Birth of Jesus
The birth of Jesus is important. Kids can think on this important event that changed the course of history as they build their LEGO Nativity scene. Check out this quick video:

Nativity scene cast of characters:
Your child can choose as many characters as they’d like from this list.
