It is important in our family to take time to remember the Savior and His birth during a season that can often get overwhelming with festivities and gifts. As a mom of three little ones I am constantly looking for ways to teach my children in a way that will be meaningful to them.
“Who AM I?” Nativity Game
- We received the Fisher Price Little People Nativity Playset a few years ago and it has become one of our favorite ways to tell the Christmas story. This year we added to the normal tell the Christmas Story and play with the set by creating a game that got the kids even more involved.
- Ahead of time you will want to write out clues describing Jesus, Mary, the Angel Gabriel, the shepherds and the wise men or feel free to print out this printable with the clues that we wrote and used.
- Read the Christmas Story. We use the book My First Story of the First Christmas, which features New Testament as well as Book of Mormon stories. You can find the book on Amazon here. There are so many books, so find one that you like!
After telling the story we sent our little ones on a hunt for the pieces to the nativity. After they returned with all the pieces we read each clue and had them pick out who we were describing. Afterwards, have them retell the story of Christmas using the playset and enjoy playing together!

About the Author:
My favorite name is mommy, but my real name is Michelle. I am from Orange County, California and currently reside in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon). I am a mother of two sweet girls, Sage & Harper and a sweet newborn little boy, Cannon and a wife to my best friend, Taylor. I always knew I wanted to be a mother. My girls have stolen my heart in a way I never thought possible. I am blessed to be able to stay home with them and am constantly trying to be the best mom I can be. It's my full time job. I read a blog post titled, A Major League Mom, and it weighed heavily on my mind and heart. It was where my inspiration for this blog came from. My girls deserve for me to be the best mom that I can be for them. With that being said, I know there is no such thing as a perfect mom, but I want to be a “professional mom.” I know there is an eternal influence and power in motherhood. I am grateful for my calling and title of mom. My hope forMotherhood in the Major Leagues blog is that it can become a place of reference, ideas, inspiration and encouragement as we all seek to be the best for our families. Check out my blog here!
