Holy Spirit Craft – Handprint Dove

Catholic ABC’s Week: 13 
Letter of the week: H
Theme: Holy Spirit
Saint of the Week: St. Helen
Craft: Holy Spirit Handprint Dove

As you all know, I love handprint crafts! For this one, start with a red piece of paper (the symbolic color for the Holy Spirit) and make a white handprint. Run glue up each finger (not the thumb) and attach a white feather. Add a yellow triangle beak and one googly eye- voila! A Holy Spirit Dove. The one above was made by my 4 year old daughter. The one below was made by my 2 year old son.

Grab Bag Ideas for the Letter Hh: (be sure to check out the Classroom Scriptfor directions on using the grab bag.) Horse, Hat, Hairbrush, Happy face, Hippo, Headband.

For More Resources, check out the Catholic Toolbox lesson plans for the Letter Hh. (Her Hh lesson is also on the Holy Spirit!)
