10 Days of Nativity: Day 9

Day 9: Magi See Jesus

I saved our camel to be introduced today. Not sure why, but it seemed nice to have him join in with the Billy goat once he arrived at the manger scene. I'm aware that Mary and Joseph and Jesus may not have been at the manger when the magi arrived but it's what I've got and the text here simply mentions a "house.". Today would be a great day to bring up the gifts the magi brought Jesus and the gifts we give on Christmas!

Introduce: Camel

Scripture: Matthew 2:10-12
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. 12 And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way.
Questions You May Ask your Kiddos:

What did the magi do when they saw the star this time? Once they saw Jesus, what did the magi do? Did they bring anything for Jesus? Did the magi return to Herod like he had asked of them? Why?
