Ideas for celebrating Epiphany

Celebrating Epiphany is wonderful way to officially end the Christmas season. The feast commemorates the visit of the Magi to Baby Jesus sometime after his birth. And as the Godly Play story says, "Every year they come too late, after the baby has been born . . . That's why we think about them on January 6!"

Here are some ideas that I have done in past years:

This simple art project leaves a lot of room for the children to develop and explore on their own. I left the star in the sample blank as symbol of the space inside us that God's revelation can fill. 

Make an Epiphany cake
The link to the recipe is in the post above!

For preschool children, this activity develops coordination 
and reminds the children of the gifts that Baby Jesus received.

If you have any other ideas or links, please share them in the comments!
