The Christmas Star From Afar™

A Game That Celebrates the True Meaning of Christmas





How the Game is Played and Why it Was Created


Follow the Star this Christmas

“The Christmas Star From Afar” encourages children to go on a hunt for their Star, similar to that of the Wise Men. Everyday the Star is hidden and the children participate in a fun hide-and-seek game to locate it. Once they have found their Star they move all Three Wise Men to its location. On Christmas morning the Three Wise Men reach their final destination when the Star is found at the stable with the newborn baby Jesus. The activity book includes a wooden Star, a full wooden nativity scene that matches the artwork of the book, and optional scripture to use throughout the month.

It's very simple and so much fun!

  • Set up your nativity
  • Hide the Star every night
  • Once your children find the Star move all Three Wise Men to its location
  • Read the optional scripture
  • Repeat
  • On Christmas Eve place your Star on the top of your nativity stable
  • On Christmas morning your Three Wise Men reach the nativity scene and find their king, baby Jesus!
  • You can easily combine the “Star From Afar” with other traditions your family participates in. Consider placing a little surprise or sweet with your Star everyday to make this fun game more like an Advent Calendar.

Created with Love

Dear Readers,

Christmas is by far my family's favorite time of year. My children love everything about this wonderful holiday, yet it is so easy to lose focus on what Christmas is all about—the birth of Jesus. I wondered how I could bring a little more of Jesus to our Christmastime fun. Through my desire to embrace my children’s excitement and my quest to find a fun daily reminder of Jesus during Christmastime, I began to dream and brainstorm about creating a new tradition for our family. God blessed me with the idea of the Christmas “Star From Afar.”



This Christmas activity has given me a chance to show my children that Christmas is not about the presents they receive, or Santa, or snowmen. Christmas is about the greatest gift of all—the birth of our Lord Jesus. The Star symbolizes not only the guide and hope of the Three Wise Men, but it also represents the Light of the World. I love watching my children look high and low for their Star every morning, hearing their squeals of excitement when the first child has spotted it, and knowing they are being reminded daily of Christ’s birth. I pray that your family will enjoy the “Star From Afar” as much as mine has and that it may bring a little more Light into your Christmas.

Many Blessings,

Natalie Ard
