I love pointing people to resources that will provide them with a simple and meaningful way to nurture faith. So I was over the moon in 2018 when I first heard about the Nativity Sticker Set from Illustrated Ministry. I can’t think of a more fabulous gift to give the kids at your church this Christmas. Here’s why:
The characters are ethnically accurate. Yes, these stickers are designed to represent biblical characters who lived in the Middle East.
The stickers are affordable. At $24.99 (U.S. dollars) for a set of 25 coated vinyl sheets featuring 19 stickers, they’ll save you a trip to the dollar store.
They can be used at home or at church. Download for free one of three digital illustrations depicting the setting of Jesus' birth (stable, grotto or home) that can be printed and given to families along with the stickers, handed out to kids at church, printed in the bulletin, or used in a myriad other ways by creative children’s ministry leaders.
Mary was drawn with a post-baby belly. That’s right, this set gets real. And this mama salutes you, Illustrated Ministry.
The stickers are available now. Check them out. (Hurry! They sell out ever year.) And while you’re at it, check out the other fabulous Advent resources they’ve created for church and families.
