Join the wise men on a 12-day Christmas journey in search of the new king. This printable activity book follows the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas. It begins on Christmas and carries through until the day before Epiphany (Jan 6th).
The 30 pages of activities, readings, crafts, and games are designed to highlight the story of the wise men and the significance of their journey and arrival in Bethlehem to worship the young Jesus. There is an activity and a reading for each of the twelve days that will familiarize kids with the story of the wise men and place their journey and timing within the biblical narrative (as a bonus, this download also includes the popular download Follow the Star, Wise Men on the Move craft activity).
Though this book follows a 12-day structure it can just as easily be used as a single story for kids to work through on or leading up to Christmas. See a preview of the activity booklet here.
Print and pass out this activity booklet to the families that walk into your Christmas services this year (or email it out as a surprise Christmas gift to work through at home). Throw in some colored pencils and a candy cane and keep kids engaged and learning for the service as they color and work through the different activities designed to familiarize them with these mysterious characters and interact with their biblical narrative.
