Check Out This Amazing DIY Nativity From Our Pal Designer Daddy

Designer Daddy claims he was up ALL night creating this amazing nativity scene, and he has allowed me to share it with you all. Ta-dah! I think we can all agree that ALF should always be an angel.

I love this because nativities are so expensive and usually fragile and this is a great way to include one in your holiday decorating without having to worry about your kids destroying it.



I have never had a nativity before, but we had one when I was younger and my nephew used to play with it, and we would always find the sheep or the baby Jesus on top of the roof of the manger. When we would tell him not to touch it he would say he wanted to “Play with the Jesus guys.”

Designer Daddy had this to say about his creation:

A Christmas craft for craft-haters. And pop culture junkies. And anyone with a lot of random crap lying around the house. Nerd Nativity!

You should totally head on over to Designer Daddy and check out his DIY holiday terrarium too. It’s all too cute. Do your kids have a nativity? Are you letting them play with it or keeping it out of reach?

I’m going to make my own Designer Daddy brand Nerd Nativity™!

    I used to love playing with one of these when I was little! Playing “house” with the Lord? Sign me up!

    I did something like this with our church last year; I talked about how we can all be part of the nativity story and encouraged kids to make their own nativity sets – they sent in pics of ones made from legos, hobbits, dinosaurs, action figures, candy, Calico Critters, etc. It was so great! My favorite was one of Princess Jasmine (Mary) riding a T rex (the donkey) led by Aladdin (Joseph) toward a Bethlehem made of Jenga blocks. We had a 9 year old boy with autism who is part of our congregation and he collects superheroes – his whole set up was the absolute best, his dad said that was the first time he was able to tell the story, with Wonder Woman as Mary and a tiny Iron Man as baby Jesus (“see his glowing heart, Dad? He’s special, right?”) If the Nativity story is already part of your tradition, I highly recommend doing this with your kids!
