The wise men traveled a long, long way,
To bring you gifts on that special day.
What do I have that I can give to you today?
I don't have much, but I can obey.
I'll read my Bible and remember to pray.
I'll give you my heart each and everyday.

Wise Men on Camels Clothespin Craft
The following craft come from the Sunday School lesson "Wise Men Still Seek Him" on The Resource Room. You will find even more crafts and activities for this theme on The Resource Room.
This is a fun creative craft with which children can work together to make the complete display. Some can work on the background while others work on the camels, and wise men.
What you will need:
Rounded clothespins for the Wise Men
Spring-type Clothespins for the Camel's Legs
Tan Card Stock (Heavy Paper)
(You can make fabric scraps from discarded clothing.), rick rack, and other decorative items, pipe cleaners, magic markers, cardboard, and scissors.
What to do:
1. Fold the card stock in half and draw camels without legs on the paper. Cut the camels out without unfolding the paper. Glue the two pieces together back-to-back to make the camel thicker, and then clip two spring-type clothespins on the bottom for the camel's legs.
2. Cut a piece of material to put over the camel's hump and decorate it with decorative trim and then glue it to the camel. (A pattern for the camel is available on The Resource Room.)
3. To make the wise men twist a pipe cleaner around the clothespin for the arms. Draw a face, hair, and sandals on the clothespin with magic markers.
4. Cut a piece of material 5" x 3.5", fold it in half, and make a tiny hole in the middle of the fold as shown in the picture. If you are using stretchy material, make the hole only a tiny slit.
5. Place the material over the head of the clothespin and over the arms.
6. Flatten out the material and staple the material under each arm as shown in the picture.
7. Bring the arms down. Gather the material under the arms and tie it with ribbon or a pipe cleaner.
8. To finish glue on decorative items such as ribbon, rick rack, and trim. Glue decorative trim around the head for a crown. You can glue beads or other items onto the hands of the wise men for the gifts.
