Offer 3 gifts for Jesus with your family to remember the gifts of the wise men.
1. Read Matthew 2:2. Say: The wise men gave baby Jesus gold to show that he is a king. Find something fancy like a gold-colored picture frame or a fashionable piece of costume jewelry, and place it under your Christmas tree as you take turns naming things you love about Jesus.
2. Read Revelation 5:8. Say: The wise men presented baby Jesus with frankincense, a spice used when people worshipped God. Set an unlit candle or other fragrant item under your tree, and take turns offering prayers as a gift to Jesus.
3. Read John 19:39-40. Say: The wise men brought myrrh, an ointment people put on bodies that were going to be buried. Set out lotion or perfume as you thank Jesus for dying for your sins.
