Star From Afar
Under the Awning
The Star From Afar is a family tradition that celebrates the true meaning of Christmas. This item comes with a hardcover book, a 14-piece colorful wooden nativity set, and a wooden star. This fun hide-n-seek game encourages children to go on a hunt for their Star, similar to that of the Wise Men. Every night the Star is hidden in the child’s home. The next morning the child will search high and low until they locate it. Once they have found their Star they move all Three Wise Men to the star’s location. They will repeat this over and over again until Christmas morning when the star will be found on top of the stable above baby Jesus!
