Today we celebrated Epiphany! We made crowns, beards and dressed in some robes I had on hand. Then we had a 12 crowns hunt to find Baby Jesus and ended it with baking cookies!
We used the crowns that you can purchase from Oriental Trading - they've come in very handy this year for multiple projects actually! We glued various "gems" and feathers and star stickers to them. Then I just cut out beards from construction paper and they glued cotton balls to it. I punched holes in the sides and attached pipe cleaners to hang the beard over their ears. Lastly, we put on the robes I had and viola' we had a "wise man"!
The next thing we did was have a 12 crowns hunt for Baby Jesus. Here is the crowns I made and the clues I gave. They basically went throughout the house finding each clue until the final clue which took them to the Baby Jesus. I kept the clues simple and made it easy for the kids given their ages.
