Wise Men & Baby Jesus (Preschool Finger Play Song)

Here is another great video from Cullen where she teaches a preschool finger plan and wise men song. It’s a simple song for young children that tells the story of the Wise Men visiting Baby Jesus.

Watch the video below where she demonstrate this story with a finger play. That just means acting the story out with just fingers instead of puppets. Finger plays are great learning activities for preschoolers because they add a physical movement to the song.

Wise Men + Baby Jesus Song & Finger Play for Preschoolers

The Wise Men traveled from afar,
Following the Christmas star,
When it stopped they jumped for joy,
And worshiped baby Jesus boy.

Use This Preschool Song for Christmas

One great way to use this song is for preschool Sunday School around Christmas time. The children will loving singing about baby Jesus and the Wise men. They could even practice and perform the song and finger play to the congregation during Advent. You could also use it to supplement a baby jesus lesson in your preschool Sunday School class. Simple finger plays are always a great learning activity for young children.

    Yikes! I thought the same thing! It would be good if this video could be re-done, changing the sign for star.

    please take the time to look into the sign for star in sign language, you’ll find you have signed a part of the body that is rather personal.

    This finger play was the perfect way to get our pre-K’s involved in our Christmas program last year! Short, easy to learn, and cute!
