We began the day with cinnamon rolls. Due to our Christmas stomach virus, I made half the cinnamon rolls I planned to make on Christmas morning. We made the other half on Epiphany. While this decision was merely an effort to use up the cinnamon rolls, it did tie the day nicely to Christmas--bookending the Christmas season. While the girls ate their cinnamon rolls, I brought down their modest Epiphany gifts. They each received a stuffed animal chosen especially for them. Clare received a pink owl that she had spotted over Thanksgiving. Meg received a lynx that looked like it was right out of Wild Kratts. Anne received the baby bunny toy from Doc McStuffins.
Following breakfast, Clare insisted we needed an Epiphany craft. I searched Pinterest for "Epiphany crafts for kids" and we came up with Paper Plate Crowns from Meaningful Mama. Our plates were more thin plastic than paper, so I let the girls decorate them with Sharpie markers. I thought this was very brave considering Anne recently decorated our walls with a Sharpie, which led to extensive clean up. After the girls decorated their plates, I cut them with an x-acto knife--again, because we were using a much thicker plate than normal paper plates. The results were cute.
