I am creating projects for the 3 year old class on Wednesday nights for this quarter, and I thought I would share what we did. These lessons for Jesus include Simeon and Anna seeing Jesus and the wise men visiting Jesus.Click here to print.

For the title page, I let the kids add a star sticker. This has Jesus as a young child and the gifts from the wise men. For the final page, they added smiley stickers. This includes the color and black & white in the download. Click here to download.
Also, tradition (and pictures, movies, books, whatever) show 3 wise men. We know there were at least two since the Bible states men. But, we are not told there were 3 wise men. Just 3 gifts. There could have been more men bringing the same gifts and Matthew 2:11 lists the 3 gifts. And, reading the scripture, we see they were called wise men, not kings. And, we are not told their names.
