Perfect Your Christmas Shepherds Costume with a Real Shepherd's Crook

Tuesday, 3 November 2015  |  John

It doesn’t matter if you’re hosting a school nativity play with a 7 year old Joseph, or a big show at the local church hall, it always feels like a mad scramble to put together a nativity play. If you’re looking to get ahead of the curve, we here at Health and Care have the perfect accessory for your costumes; real shepherd’s crooks.

Why Use a Shepherd's Crook?

Using a real shepherd's crook is a great finishing touch to your handmade Christmas shepherd’s costume, and will help draw in the audience even more to the fantastic story you (or your little ones) are putting on this Christmas. A discerning audience will easily spot a fake shepherds crook, so it’s a good idea to have the real deal up on stage on opening night.

These shepherds crooks are used by real farmers every day, and are still incredibly popular among the farming community and still have a great significance in people’s minds and hearts and will make a valuable addition to any shepherd costume for nativity plays. 

Which Crook is Right for Me?

And it doesn’t even matter what kind of nativity play you’re putting on – if it’s a traditional nativity, complete with donkeys and stables, then we have some fantastic natural, real wood shepherds crooks with classic detailing. Giving that authentic, classic look and feel, Natural Chestnut Shepherds Crook - 4'6" is the perfect choice for you.

Depending on what you’re after, we have some traditional designs, complete with the bumps and knobbly parts you might expect to find on a classic shepherds crook, like on this Natural Ash Shepherds Crook - 4'6". We’ve also got some smooth and stylish designs, complete with metal detailing, like on this Corinium Moulded Shepherds Crook Walking Stick.

And if you want to go even more rustic (without having to use the actual branch off a tree and all the dangers of germs and viruses that can cause) then the Deerstalkers Hazel Thumbstick Hiking Stick is right up your alley. Its classic design makes it great for an old-fashioned themed shepherds costume for nativity plays.

Even if you’re throwing a futuristic-style nativity play to get the kids really engaged and enthralled with this timeless story, we’ve got a fantastic shepherd's crook for your space shepherds - the Aluminium Shepherds Crook - 4'6".
