Jesus and the wise men
The wise men, or magi, came to visit Jesus quite some time after he was born – perhaps weeks or months after the shepherds.   They brought some very unusual gifts for a baby – find out more in the story.

Activities

Guess the gift game
You will need: an empty box, a blindfold or scarf and some random items from around the house.
How to play: Take it in turns to wear the blindfold.  One random item is placed in the box.  Using just your senses of touch, hearing and smell, can you work out what is in the box?
