we were talking to the children about what the three wise men brought to baby jesus when he was born and then we asked the children what they might bring if they were going to give a gift to jesus. here are an assortment of answers from my four and five-year-olds.
"a big hug."
"i'm gonna bring lucy, my puppy. she will slobber."
"hola kitty boots."
"gold racecars and stuff. and playdoh." to which another child responds, "jesus might eat playdoh."
"i'm gonna bring gold and frankinsence. if i can find a real 'x' and a stick i could give it to baby jesus but he might eat that stick."
"i would give him a light-saver, it's a sword. do you think he would want that billy?" to which billy responds, "it might be too big for him."
"a bag of stickers. how 'bout that?"
"a fish. one that looks like nemo."
"i don't know...i JUST. DON'T. KNOW!"
