Wish Charms craft

Shiny, bright Mexican milagros are a wonderful way to create your own "little miracles." What wishes do you want to come true?

  • 1.

    Many Mexican people use milagros as tokens to represent something they would like help with or wish for. They accompany the milagro with a prayer. Traditional milagros include an ear of corn (for crops) and body parts (for healing that part of the body).

  • 2.

    Think about something you would like help with, such as practicing music, improving your grades, or getting better at a sport. Think of a symbol for your wish, such as a piano, book, or sneaker.

  • 3.

    Cut aluminum foil into the shape of your symbol with Crayola Scissors. Make impressions in the surface of your symbol with Crayola Twistables™ Colored Pencils.

  • 4.

    Cut a wish tag from paper. Write your wish on the tag with the colored pencils. Poke a hole in the tag and in your symbol. Connect them with string.
