How To Draw Baby Jesus (In A Manger)

Well it’s Friday and you know what that means… it’s time for your TGIF how to draw video for the week! With Christmas just around the corner, I thought it would be really fun to share a video of how to draw baby Jesus in a manger. This one is so fun cute and easy to draw! Last week I released a set of how to draw videos for drawing your own Jesse Tree ornaments, and today’s video of how to draw baby Jesus is one of the videos from that series. So if you like this one, you may like the other 24 videos from my how to draw Jesse Tree ornaments series

You can find all of my Catholic how-to-draws here, and be sure to check back because there is a new TGIF video each week! I am super excited about this new set so kids can draw their own Jesse Tree ornaments! If you want to be sure not to miss any how to draw videos in the future, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel

This is a great activity for Catholic kids when learning about the Jesse Tree, and for keeping little hands occupied while listening to the daily devotional readings. You can get started drawing your first ornament now! 

In this video I use my Prismacolor brush tip artist markers to color this in and you can find some here. These are professional artist markers, so they cost a pretty penny, but they’re worth every cent. I just love they definitely make a difference in the final drawing. 

You can also download this as a free coloring page along with a free Jesse Tree star topper here

  1. My class absolutely loves your “How to Draw” videos! We were wondering if there might be one for Epiphany? That’s our first day back from Christmas Break, and it would be an awesome way to start the new year! =)
