For some families, Día de los Reyes (or the Epiphany) is when their gift exchange takes place. Children may leave their shoes, a note with their wishlists tucked inside for the Magi. Others leave a box of grass for the Magi’s camel, in the hopes that the kings will leave them a few gifts in thanks. If this sounds like your family, then you may be on the lookout for shoe- or box-sized gifts.
We’ve put together a list of 25 small items for the Epiphany that nurture your child’s global citizenship and are just the right size for Reyes gift giving. (Find great Epiphany activities and crafts for kids here).
