We are so excited to celebrate Reyes Magos. Since moving our family from West to East Coast, I have taken great efforts to show our kids the importance of cultural religious beliefs I grew up with.
This year we plan to write letters to los Reyes, stuff them in our stockings and await for their arrival with lots of treats
With that a celebration is in order so we decided to make a rosca for the first time this year and we will all be in style with our own Reyes Magos Crowns!
Today the kids and I created our own felt Reyes Magos crowns. They chose the colors and decor. It is a really great activity to do as a family.
To make some crowns for your Reyes Magos celebration here is what you will need:
1-Felt sheet 8.5×11 works best
3-Decorations for your crown we used poms
4-A pen or marker in similar shade as felt
Let’s get started!
1- Fold your felt in half ”hot-dog style” With the opening to the top create your crown. We started in the middle by starting a triangle and zig-zag style until we liked our design.
2-Cutting on the markings you made you should have your desired design. Cut along the bottom to make 2 equal parts.
3-Glue one flap over another wait for it to dry. Measure around the child’s head and mark it.
4-Glue the flap and wait for it to dry.
5-Once dry, cut off any excess that may be uneven on design.
6-Decorate with your kids the more decoration the more magical they become!
Now you are in style and ready for the celebration!!!
