Holidays are's Nativity time!

The festive season is well on the way, and with it comes hot chocolates, sparkly lights and of course the school nativity play. There can be a lot more to organise for your child than you realise and making sure they're all set for their play is important. To help, we've compiled a list of things you need, to make sure you're ready to jingle all the way!

1. The perfect costume

From Mary and Joseph to Kings and Shepherds; whatever role your child has landed they'll need the right costume to really get them in character. Nativity costumes ( can be a lot of fun to choose, and with donkeys, sheep and even stars often taking to the stage there'll be giggles for everyone.

2. Don't forget the accessories

A costume is one thing, but it's the accessories that really add some authenticity to the overall look. Angels need harps (, for example, Kings need a crown ( and shepherds need...well...sheep! ( The little touches make a huge a difference, so consider any accessories that may be needed.

3. A touch of humour

The Nativity is a beautiful story that never loses its magic, no matter how many years pass. Modern adaptations often add a hint of comedy, to enhance the enjoyment of the storytelling. If your child is playing the role of the Inn Keeper, a Shepherd or a King, consider a fake beard or moustache; this little touch will add warm-hearted humour amongst the children and their parents.

4. Join in the fun

If you're a teacher or assistant at the school, or even just an enthusiastic parent, then joining in with the fancy dress fun is a great way to connect with the children and the festive spirit. Adult costumes come in a variety of themes, with perfect Christmas options available ( too!
