Christmas Nativity ~ Learn to Draw for Kids

colored pencils

If your child likes drawing, they might enjoy learning how to draw a nativity. Put some learn-to-draw items on to the same page, making it kind of a how-to page; and then you may like to jazz it up a little. Add a border, a title, a Christmas Bible verse, some Nativity clip art. Give your child extra paper so they can practise, then once they master each separate item, they can put them all together and draw their own cute nativity scene.  :)

Make sure your child knows there was more than three magi. The Bible tells us there were three GIFTS, not three men. The Magi were political king-makers (from our term: magistrates) with a dual priestly role, carrying expensive gifts over a long distance. It would have been a large political delegation. Click the link to read more (fascinating)….

One of the titles given to Daniel was Rab-mag, the Chief of the MagiDaniel apparently entrusted a messianic vision (to be announced in due time by a “star”) to a secret sect of the Magithe Magi, in their dual priestly and governmental office, composed the upper house of the Council of the Megistanes (“magistrates”) whose duties included the absolute choice and election of the king of the realm. It was therefore a group of Persian-Parthian “king makers” who entered Jerusalem in the latter days of the reign of Herod. Herod’s reaction was understandably one of fear the sudden appearance of the Magi, probably traveling in force with every imaginable oriental pomp and accompanied by adequate cavalry escort to insure their safe penetration of Roman territory, certainly alarmed Herod and the populace of Jerusalem…”
