Are you searching for the best Epiphany crafts for your family? Don’t miss this mega-list of crafts, activities, special foods, books, videos, printables and more!

As we continue to celebrate the Christmas season, the Epiphany approaches. Sometimes lost or overlooked in the hustle and bustle, this feast marks the end of the Christmas season and moves us back into Ordinary Time.

We celebrate the Visit of the Magi to the Christ Child. My children and I talk about the Three Kings (potentially perilous) journey to Bethlehem, what it means today to seek Christ, and what gifts we can offer. As I’ve gotten older, the timing of the Epiphany and the New Year is so apropos. It’s a new year, a fresh start to turn our paths toward God and offer Him back our very best.

Looking for the best Epiphany crafts and activities for your Catholic family? Don't miss this list -- includes printables, unit studies, books, videos, music and more!

For little ones, celebrating the Epiphany is downright fun! There’s crafts of stars and crowns, stories of wise men and camels, and of course, King Cake!

Let’s take a look and check out all of the amazing ways to celebrate Epiphany with your family this year.
Remember, you don’t have to choose EVERY single thing on this list. Grab a cup of coffee, settle in, and select the ideas that work for YOU.

Enjoy crafting with your children? Grab your supplies and get started. If crafts aren’t your style (solidarity, sister), then scroll on down to the books, printables, snacks and videos to enjoy.

Make this special, but keep it simple for sanity’s sake.

Epiphany Crafts

If you’re a crafty mom, I’ve got you covered with loads of Epiphany fun. These simple ideas for celebrating the arrival of the Wise Men are adorable.

 

 

 

Maeve loves these Wise Men block people – we glued them to a toilet paper roll, but you could also use a craft stick or even laminate them and add magnets.

Speaking of toilet paper rolls ….
Upcycle your toilet paper rolls and fabric scraps and make these kings!

Then, grab some paint sticks and extra felt to make these sweet Wise Men stick people.

I love these wise men shadow puppets! Your children can easily enact the Wise Men’s journey with these fun props.
