Three boxes, three 'kingly' gifts, but can you find the gold? A fun all age magical game with a nativity theme and with REAL frankincense and myrrh. Beautiful props, clever magic and only minimal practice required.
The audience is shown three identical boxes. Inside one box are gold coins, and inside the other two are bags of Frankincense and Myrrh. Who does this remind you of? Of course, the three Magi! The boxes are closed and mixed up. A volunteer is invited to the front and freely selects one of them. You open your envelope and reveal your printed prediction 'You will pick GOLD.' When the box is open jaws drop. The prediction was correct - the box contains the gold coins.
Now for a fun Christmas game. The myrrh and frankincense are taken out, and the volunteer hides the gold coins in one of the three empty boxes, while your back is turned. The boxes are mixed up. Against the odds, you can always identify the box that contains the gold coins. After several rounds you change places with your volunteer and the game ends with the volunteer winning a bag of chocolate gold coins. The perfect reminder of the gifts God gives each one of us.
No peaking. No touching the boxes. No electronics. We'll teach you two very clever magical principles that you can adapt for 101 other presentations and messages. This effect includes real frankincense and myrrh (we don't supply real gold, sorry!) The myrrh and frankincense smell great and generates a LOT of interest.
Self-working magic that lets you focus on your message. Ideal for beginners looking to add a little magic to their next service.
Christmas messages include:
- the gifts that God gives us
- the gifts that we can offer to God
- the meanings of the three gifts given to Jesus
USE ALL YEAR ROUND. Illustrate ANY sermon or talk by simply changing the contents of the boxes.
- Easter - use chocolate mini-eggs
- Harvest - use berries/cherries/nuts in the boxes
- Parable of the Sower – fill one box with seed, one with stones, and one with feathers or a toy bird.
- Parables of the lost sheep and lost coin - Add coins or a small toy sheep
A fun and powerful message for your next Christmas service, school assembly or party.
