Make a star trivet reminiscent of the star that guided the Magi to Bethlehem where Jesus was born. Useful throughout the year, a star trivet is an Epiphany activity for kids with crafting skills.

What You'll Need:

Corrugated cardboard

Pencil

Scissors

Paintbrush

Glue

Silver foil

Many metal soda bottle caps

Silver paint

The three Magi were guided by a star. Keep a guiding star in your kitchen all year 'round.

Cut a large star from cardboard. Paint the star with a thin layer of glue, and wrap it with foil until it is entirely covered.

Glue bottle caps in rows, with the flat side up, to the front of the star. When the glue has dried, paint the bottle caps silver. The star trivet also makes a nice decoration when you are not using it.

Mini versions of the three kings can be a fun activity to make during the Epiphany. Learn how you can create these special finger puppets for your Epiphany celebration.
