Rock Nativity Scene Craft

Semi-Natural Rock Nativity Scene

This rock nativity scene is semi-natural, you can go on a nature hunt for the materials.

This Rock Nativity Scene activity is simple so kids can grab the container of supplies and do the craft by themselves.

You can purchase the materials as well, that is up to you on types of materials to use. 

*  The only part the kids need help with is the hot glue part, a grown-up should be using and doing the hot glue part unless the child is old enough to do it while being supervised.

When I told Jehzel about this craft he was really excited to get started! 

Before you get started, be sure you have all the supplies first. I recommend putting all supplies into a plastic shoe box sized container for when you are ready to make your Rock Nativity Scene.

Make it into a group activity with your friends, have a parent grab some supplies in larger quantities first here:


Materials For Rock Nativity Scene:

  1. Large flat rocks
  2. Small pebbles
  3. Twigs of different lengths that snap easily
  4. Hot glue gun
  5. Burlap covered canvas
  6. Floral moss
  7. Star shaped confetti

Instructions To Assemble Rock Nativity Scene:

  • Begin by laying out twigs in the shape of a stable on the front of the burlap wrapped canvas. Make the stable large enough to hold all of the nativity characters you plan to include on your canvas. You can view the photo as an idea of the basic shape you need to create.
  • Glue the twigs into place with a hot glue gun once you have them arranged where you would like them to be.

  • Place a thin layer of hot glue along the twigs that form the stable and press some floral moss into it. Tap off the excess moss gently and allow the glue to dry and harden.

  • Create a baby Jesus shape for your nativity by finding a medium sized, flat round stone for his body, and a small round pebble for his head. Hot glue him into place in the center of the nativity and leave room under him to create a manger out of twigs.
  • Make a manger for baby Jesus out of twigs and glue it into place under him on the front of the canvas.

  • Create other nativity characters of your choosing out of the larger flat stones and the small pebbles. These can include Mary, Joseph, wise men, shepherds and even sheep.
  • Hot glue the different rock characters into place within the stable on the front of your burlap canvas.

Santa Does Exist, I have Proof!

Santa does exist and I have proof he does!

Santa does exist right mama? Papa, doesn’t Santa exist? Your child came home from school worried that Santa doesn’t exist because a few kids at school or daycare told them something different from what you are doing.

Now they are very concerned, they are worried, scared and stressed out. They have been good little girls and boys most of the year too! 

I know, I have been through this same thing many times and with having a one year old, it will not stop! 

These days kids are more demanding, they need some type of proof, especially since they can easily Google stuff these days!

Guess what … There is Proof that Santa Does Exist, it will not cost you much to show your child this proof either. Plus Google now helps us out with a Santa Tracking Ticker.

I remember with my oldest son, he was three years old. He remembered everything! The morning of Christmas when we told him Santa came, he said “no he didn’t, this is the same exact wrapping paper grandma had in her room!”

Yes, he was that much of a critical thinker. From there on, it never worked out for him to believe in anything about Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy etc. 

Then came along my second child, he believed and for a couple of years his older brother played along. He caught on quickly when kids at school continued saying how Santa didn’t exist. It didn’t help when the school had more of a focus on Hanukkah lol, it was a public school but I think our community were mostly Jewish so that could explain why nothing from other religions were ever discussed. No, I didn’t get mad at it, hey it helped my boys learn something new! 

Then came my third son, he was the same as my oldest, he needs that tangible proof or it just doesn’t exist. By this time, they had some cousins that we were trying to play the Santa game with. It was hard since they had so many outside influences telling them otherwise. 

Now comes along my fourth son who is now eight and this year my toddler. We are continuing with the Santa, Jehzel is eight, he loves Santa. He can’t really comprehend just yet what others tell him so he gets pretty confused. One day he is all over Santa and the next he is questioning his where-about.
