We took our tree and Christmas decorations down yesterday. It took hours but I’m quite pleased our house has now returned to normal. My son is very sad though as he adored turning off the big light “to see how pretty the tree looks”. He really ‘got’ Christmas this year and enjoyed every minute.
To cheer him up I thought we would make one last Christmas craft. January 6th is celebrated as the Epiphany, or the day the three Wise Men (or Kings) visited the infant Jesus.
We had lots of sparkly bits left around after tidying away our Christmas decorations so it was easy to make our own three Kings.
We used little wooden spoons as a base and added crowns, beards and leftover stickers and pieces of tinsel and ribbon for their clothes.
They came together quite quickly, the toddler enjoyed glueing most of all, and we’re pretty pleased with the finished results.
