The Kings brought gold because Jesus was special. They brought frankincense because he was their savior. They brought myrrh because he loved everyone. David Sack HCCS Gr. 2

The Magi saw a new star in the east. They knew Baby Jesus was born. The Magi wanted to worship him. Gold is valuable. They brought Baby Jesus gold as a gift because they knew he will be the new king of the Jews. Frankincense and myrrh smell good when it is burned. This gift let everyone know baby Jesus is special. They should of gave him a candle to help him light love in our hearts. Lauren Limoni HCCS Gr. 2

The Magi brought gold to help Mary and Jospeh buy clothing and food and water for Jesus. They brought frankincense and myrrh to put on his pillow so it would smell good. I think the Magi should bring animals to baby Jesus so that he could have his own animals to take with him when he leaves the stable.
Emma Anderson HCCS Gr. 2

The kings wanted to see the new baby Jesus who was born. Jesus was our new king from God. To welcome him to the world, the kings brought presents. They picked presents which were special to show how happy and thankful they were that God gave us his son. The Kings brought shiny gold coins that were super special and hard to find. Mary and Joseph were surprised by the gifts. They thanked the kings for the gifts and for coming to see their baby. They let them hold Jesus. Probably the kings also brought donkeys to ride, water bottles and food to share. They ate supper and celebrated Jesus birth.

The Three Kings may have brought baby Jesus gold to make him rich. I think maybe they brought him food. This would help him not be hungry. He could also share extras with hungry people. The third thing I think they brought were sandals so he would not hurt his feet while walking sharing his gold and food with the poor. Braeden Tilot HCCS Gr. 2

The three wise men brought blankets and water. The three wise men followed the star with their camels. They brought hay for the camels. They all prayed for baby Jesus. They loved him. Keegan McCarron HCCS Gr. 2

I think they brought some water and food along with them. Also love and prayer for Jesus. I think they also brought blankets. Kade McCarron HCCS Gr. 2

The three kings brought the gifts to be nice to Jesus. They brought the Gold so He can get money. Frankincense was given to Him so He can smell good. Myrrh was given to Him so that they can put it on His forehead. The three kings should have given Him a blanket to keep Him warm because He was outside.
Lindsay Ritchie HCCS Gr. 2

There once was a king who was born in Bethlehem. There were 3 wise men who followed a star to get to the baby king. They brought gold because they knew Jesus was royal. They brought frankincense because they knew he was the son of God. Myrrh was brought because they would always believe in Jesus.
The End. Samantha Hendry HCCS Gr. 2

The Three Kings traveled far away to find Baby Jesus. They brought gifts such as gold, frankincense, and myrrh. They found Baby Jesus in the manger with the help of the light of the star. The greatest gift the Three Kings could give to Jesus is their FAITH that Jesus the King is born.

Essay:

They brought these gifts because Jesus was the newborn king. I would have also brought a toy wooden horse for Jesus to play with. It would have to be wooden because that is probably all they had to make toys with back then.
