This cute little activity is a great addition to your Christmas lessons! Matthew 2 tells us that Wisemen/Magi/Kings followed the star to find Jesus.
Print on white card stock. Bubble cut each set of wisemen and their camels. Have kids color the characters and the background scene on page one, two, or three depending on if you use the word “wisemen”, “magi”, or ‘kings”. You might consider letting them use some kind of gold paint or glitter crayons for the star. When they finish coloring, attach a popsicle stick to the back of the wisemen and camels to make a puppet. Use an X-Acto knife to cut the dotted line on the first page. Stick the popsicle stick through the slit to move the wisemen on their journey towards baby Jesus from the east (move right to left).
*People use different words to describe these men. I have included the words wisemen, magi, and kings for you to choose between.
