The Grandpa’s Nativity 

Story Play

“Absolutely excellent! Complete bargain!

Many parents said it was our best nativity yet”

Jodi Ince, Blidworth Oaks Early Years Unit, Nottinghamshire

As with all of my nativity plays, the Grandpa's Nativity Story is…

  • Purpose written
  • Adaptable
  • Easy to learn

As I began writing nativity scripts for my own use as a children’s leader, I deliberately make them…

  • easy to recast in the event of absence or illness, and
  • simple to use regardless of the number of children.
  • INSTANTLY DOWNLOADABLE in an easy to use format.  

The nativity script lasts around 25 minutes and is written entirely in rhyme, including the narration and all of the speaking parts, a proven way to make the script easier to remember.

Preschools, primary schools and churches across the world have written to say how simple and effective they have found it, many stating that it has been their “most successful nativity to date.”
