This is a bible file folder game for children who are learning the story of the three kings. Children help the kings follow the stars all the way to the manger, by putting them in the correct order. The kings are ordered by their multiples of three.

Introduce game: Who was searching for baby Jesus?

Wise Men Search

Need: Clothes pin to be baby Jesus.

Directions: One student is picked to be a Wise Man and steps out of the classroom. Another student is picked by the teacher to hide baby Jesus somewhere in the classroom. When baby Jesus is hidden, the Wise Man comes back into the room. He is to find baby Jesus by directions from the student that hid baby Jesus. These directions are: the star is not very bright if the Wise Man is far away, brighter if somewhat nearer, getting brighter if even closer, and VERY bright if very close. When the Wise Man finds the baby Jesus, the person that hid baby Jesus is now the Wise Man.

Finding Favor (Wise Men Find Jesus)
This game will help students identify how we pursue things that are important to us. (The Encyclopedia of Bible Games for Children’s Ministry, page 68 & 69).
