Description

Historians have pieced together some facts about 3 Kings Day History because the bible doesn’t tell us much.
The visitors that the infant Jesus received shortly after his birth, are known as the wise men, or the 3 kings. We celebrate their arrival on 3 Kings Day, or Epiphany. Epiphany is celebrated as the 12th day of Christmas.  This holiday, celebrated on January 6th goes by several names: 3 Kings Day, The Feast of the Epiphany, or simply Epiphany. Learning about 3 Kings Day, Epiphany, and the history of the Maji are an excellent way to close the Christmas Season.
 

In our 3 Kings Day Epiphany History Resource you will receive:

 
  • An Informational Text page/ handout
  • Link to a Google Slide Presentation with the same/similar information as the handout
  • Link to an EXCLUSIVE Homeschool Holiday TEACHING Video
  • A printable 1-page mini-book that contains the 8 slides of the presentation in “pocket” size.
Use any or all of these elements to relate the history of three kings day to your learners.
 
  • Printable pages for each of the 3 kings, their gifts, and their animals so you can complete your choice of 3 Kings Day crafts.
 
Choose to make: Puppets, a Mobile, or even a mural for your wall/classroom. There are both FULL COLOR as well as color your own files.
Simply select the style you want to use and print those pages.
 
Please note: Creating the mobile takes time and patience. It involves advanced cutting skills. You may want to work on the project a little at a time or assist young learners.
 
To make the mobile, you will need yarn, twine, or some other suitable string as well as an old clothes hangar or branch from a nature walk. These elements are not included with your download 🙂
 
In the event you hang the mobile freely, I have included the “front” and the “back” of each set so as the mobile spins there are no blanks. If the mobile is hanging against the wall you only need one side.
 
As a BONUS activity, I have included my printable The 3 Kings Day Crown template. Learners can color to decorate or decorate with stickers, gems, etc. Even painting the crown would be fun.

A NOTE ABOUT STANDARDS: 

 
Homeschool Holiday resources are designed by a credentialed teacher and packed with learning opportunities – after all, our major guiding principle is “everything is learning”. We reference the major academic terms and overarching concepts addressed rather than specific standards. You are the expert in your field and know what standards you need to meet, and how best to accomplish that for your learners. Our goal is to save you time by giving you resources you can use to give your learners a quality education built on strong relationships, accurate academic resources, and enriching experiences. 
I hope the Gifts of the Magi bless your educational Journey this season!
