      Clothes Pin Angels

      This craft can be done with a hot glue gun or with Elmerís glue. The hot glue gun will set the pieces quicker but if the children

      Materials:

    • 1 Small Baby Clothes Pin (available from most craft supply stores)
    • 2 Medium Tear Drop wooden shapes OR 1 medium heart shaped wood
    • 1 Yellow circle about the size of a penny
    • 1 pipe cleaner 2 Ĺ inches long
    • 1 pipe cleaner 1 inch long
    • 3 small pieces of lace cut into triangular shapes

      Directions:

      1. Draw two eyes and a mouth on the top of the clothes pin.

      2. Bend the tips of the pipe cleaner into small hands Ö a pair of flat tweezers is good for this

      3. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the body of the pin just above the legs (the pins Iím using have a natural spot for this

      4. Glue the pipe cleaner to the clothes pin.

      5. If you use tear drops, position the tear drops so that they form wings by placing the two points together and glue them. Skip this step if you are using hearts

      6. Take the yellow circle and glue it to the back of the clothes pin at the top to form a halo

      7. Now glue the clothes pin to the teardrop shapes or the heart so that they form wings.

      8. Once the glue has dried, take the lace pieces and glue them to the legs to form a three layer skirt

      9. Take the 1 inch pipe cleaner and form a small circle at one end. Glue this to the back to form a hanger.


      Coffee Filter Butterflies

      This is a two day craft, to allow drying time between each day.

      Materials:

    • 1 coffee filter per child
    • 2 pipe cleaners per child

      Directions

      Various small dishes of water with different colors of food coloring added to each dish and an eyedropper for each dish.

      Take the coffee filter and flatten it out (not too flat though). With eyedroppers drip different colors on each filter (not too wet though!) Let the filters dry overnight. Once each filter is dry, gather the filter in the center and wrap both pipe cleaners around the center. Form the butterfly's antennae with a tip of each pipe cleaner (small children may need help with this) Wrap the end of each pipe cleaner around a pencil to make the antennae curly. You can use the butterfly to talk about the change that occurs during life.


      Communion Cup Angels

      Turn the communion cupupside down. Glue a 1 inch styrofoam ball to it (for the head). Make wings out of felt or foam fun. 2 heart shapes will do. Glue them to the back of the communion cup. Make a halo out of a 3" piece of star (gold) garland. To do this, make a 1" circle from the garland, twist together and bend the excess piece down. Glue the excess piece to the back of the communion cup and to the head. We also used gold glitter paint on our wings. This was quick and easy. I used hot glue for the halos.

      When finished I used this craft to tell the children of how Mary was vistied by an angel.
