Recycled Reyes Magos {Craft}

Posted by: | 7 Comments

El Día de los Reyes Magos has been special to me since I was a kid. It was no question that I would celebrate with my kids as well. I decided to kick it up a notch this year by creating a craft to go along with our day. Much like Christmas, my grandmother would adorn our mantle with all the grandkid’s stockings, yes, all 12 of them. We never did do a craft, not even at school. This craftRead More ...
