King (Zechariah 9:9)
Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Read and Discuss. Who is the King in this story? Is this prophecy? Was it a prophecy that has been fulfilled?
MATH: There are several concepts that you might want to cover here depending on the age of the student. You could create faux jewels or coins and cover counting, addition, and subtraction skills. For older children you may want to cover percentages in regard to taxes or cover counting money. For advance students, you may wish to cover topics such as fiscal accountability, the idea of taxes, responsible budgeting, etc.
LANGUAGE ARTS: How can Jesus be a servant and a king? Learn the literary term "paradox." Have your children think of more examples of a paradox.
JOURNAL ACTIVITY: Make a list of all the adjectives that they can that describe a good king. Younger children may wish to illustration what they think a good king looks like.
HISTORY/GEOGRAPHY: Talk about some Kings in the Old Testament or any other time period. Were they good kings or bad kings? Why? Civics: Why doesn't the U.S. have a King? You may also find the chart of Kings on the following pages interesting to use with the older children.
COOKING RECIPE: Epiphany, celebrated in European countries, marks the coming of the wise men who brought gifts to the Christ Child. Epiphany is also called Little Christmas on the Twelfth Night, and is celebrated twelve nights after Christmas. People from all of the world celebrate Epiphany by exchanging gifts and feasting. A very popular custom that is still celebrated is the making of the "King's Cake" which represents the three kings who brought gifts. A plastic baby is baked inside the King Cake, and the tradition is whoever receives the baby in their piece of cake must buy the next King Cake or throw the next party. King Cakes are made of a cinnamon filled dough in the shape of a hollow circle. The cake is topped with a delicious glazed topping and then sprinkled with colored sugar. The three colors of the sugar are Purple (representing Justice), Green (representing Faith) and Gold (representing Power). Follow the recipe on the following page to make your own “king cake.”
CRAFT: Make crowns. Older children can perhaps illustrate the combination of Jesus as servant and king.
SERVICE PROJECT IDEA: Be a leader and start any community and/or service project, enlisting others to help you.
SAMPLE PRAYER: Thank you Jesus for being my King. Help me to let you lead and guide me in the actions I should take in my life. Give me the courage and wisdom to share your sovereignty with others. Amen.

King Cake Recipe12
This recipe has a lot of steps but none of them are difficult. Now that you know how time-consuming it is to make a King Cake, you can appreciate why many people just order one up from their favorite bakery!

Ingredients

1/2 cup warm water (110 to 115 degrees)


2 packages active dry yeast
1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar
31/2 41/2 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 cup warm milk
5 egg yolks
1 stick butter cut in slices and softened, plus 2 tablespoons more
1 egg slightly beaten with a tablespoon of milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tiny plastic doll (not more than 1")
Directions

Pour the warm water into a small shallow bowl and sprinkle yeast and 2 teaspoons sugar into it. Allow the yeast and sugar to rest for three minutes, then mix thoroughly. Set bowl in a warm place for 10 minutes until yeast bubbles up. Combine 31/2 cups of flour, remaining sugar, nutmeg and salt and sift into a large mixing bowl.


Stir in lemon zest. Separate center of mixture to form a hole and pour in yeast mixture and milk. Add egg yolks and using a wooden spoon, combine dry ingredients into the yeast/milk mixture. When mixture is smooth, beat in 8 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon at a time and continue to beat 2 minutes or until dough can be formed into a medium soft ball.
Place ball of dough on floured surface and knead, gradually adding up to 1 cup more of flour. When dough is no longer sticky, knead 10 minutes more until shiny and elastic.
Using a pastry brush, coat the inside of a large bowl evenly with one tablespoon softened butter. Place dough ball in the bowl and rotate until the entire surface is buttered. Cover bowl with a heavier kitchen towel and allow dough to rise in a warm place for about 11/2 hours or until it doubles in volume. Coat a large baking sheet with one tablespoon of butter and set aside. After the first rising, place the dough on a floured surface and punch it down with a heavy blow. Sprinkle cinnamon, then pat and shape the dough into a long 'snake' or 'cylinder'. Form a twist by folding the long cylinder in half, end to end, and pinching the ends together. Then twist the dough. Form a ring with the completed twist pinch the ends together. Place the completed ring on the buttered baking sheet, cover it with a towel and allow it to rise for 45 minutes or until it doubles in volume.
After the second rising, brush the top and sides of the cake with the egg and milk wash. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and hide the plastic baby in the cake.
Icing (2 parts)

Colored sugar


Green, purple and yellow coloring paste (sold with cake decorating supplies)
12 tablespoons sugar

Divide sugar into three portions (for green, yellow and purple).


Add a tiny amount of the coloring paste to each sugar portion. Try mixing the sugar and colored pasted between your palms for best results. Set aside.
Poured icing

3/4 cups confectioners sugar


1/4 cup lemon juice
36 tablespoons of water

Combine ingredients until smooth, adding more water if it's too thick. Spoon icing over top of cake. Immediately sprinkle on colored sugars, alternating between the three colors. Serve in 2"3" pieces.
