Birth of Jesus Cut & Glue Mini Book for Preschool

This is another of the projects I did with my granddaughter. She loves to do crafting and this is what I came up with. A mini book. I also created this as a cut, color and glue project. So, you have your choice to print in color or black and white.
This is an updated version of the following printables that you can find free in my store here.
The download has the color and black & white verson attached.
This is a real manger! A manger is a feed trough found in a stable....
More good info and free Bible land Photos here.

The Wise men did not visit at the birth, so I put them on the back. Matthew 2:1 says Wise men came from the East, but we don't know how many actually visited Jesus. The Bible doesn't tell us. It is assumed there were 3, since there were 3 gifts. Matthew 2:11 also tells us that Jesus was a child, and they were at home. He was not a baby and they were not at the stable.
 
Here is the above, in color, in Spanish.
 
Here is the black and white copy if you want to color it. There is not a shepherd. He is actually Joseph from another set, and I do not have him in the black and white. So, I added a camel.
 
Aquí está todo lo anterior, en blanco y negro, en español.


Or, you can choose this style of graphics. I added a boy for the Wise men visiting Jesus, and the animals are a little different for the stable. Here it is to print.

This is the above in black and white, if you'd rather color it.

And, some pictures to color. You don't see many of the inn, so here is one! Print it here.

  5. Could more people have visited but just not afforded gifts?

    1. It sure seems possible, especially family, but we are only told about the shepherds and wise men, so I keep it to the Bible. There is a lot we are not told and we are left to wonder!
