Our Magi lessons go deeper, get more creative, and spend more time in life application than those typical "kiddie craft, star and gift" lessons.
Six creative lessons including:
◊ A King Cake Workshop
◊ A "Bible Story Selfie" Drama Workshop
◊ The Magi's Camel Games Workshop
◊ And a Video~Music Workshop that uses four free clips --including two from Disney's "Moana" that will make you go say "Oh yeah!"

Here's a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.
|Week 1||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6||Open|
|Week 2||Open||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6|
