Four Presents & A Baby is an original object lesson with a magical ending that tells the Nativity story in an unforgettable way.
"I used this trick yesterday to a gathering of children and adults. I decided to do it as a straight story rather than the extra twist of the trick and it was brilliant. Great idea, easy to hold children’s attention. One of the adults said it was the best talk that they had heard me give. Many thanks. This trick is a great communicating tool for Christmas" Ian Thomson
Four volunteers come to the front and each have a sticker placed on their back. They choose one of 4 brightly coloured presents. Inside each one is a surprise. A golden key, some hay, frankincense resin or a small wooden cross. Each tells a part of the Christmas story.
But wait, there is a magical twist. The volunteers turn round and finds that the sticker on their back exactly matches the colour of the box they freely chose! Impossible!
Everything you need to make the Nativity Story come alive!
The colours of the boxes and their contents have been carefully selected to tell a different aspect of the Christmas Story.
- Gold Box with Frankincense Resin - gifts of the 3 Magi
- Red Box with wooden cross - Jesus' trade and his death and resurrection
- Blue Box with straw - Mary (blue) struggles and Jesus humble birth as a Servant King
- Purple Box with Holly & Berries - Birth of the King of Kings (purple) who brings eternal life (green holly) through his blood (red berries)
