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