Catholic ABC’s Week: 24
Letter of the week: S
Saint of the Week: St. Sebastian
Craft: Saint Collage Craft
This craft is soooo easy to do! Just fold some paper in half, cut out a heart, glue it down, and trace around it with a marker. Then write “Saints, Our Heavenly Family”. Have the kids cut out and glue down pictures of the saints in the heart. You can use holy cards, print pictures from the internet, or cut up some of your Catholic catalogs you have lying around. We used our Autom Catalog.
I actually didn’t invent this craft idea- it was thought of by my friend Denise, who used to teach my preschool class before me. Here’s a variation of this craft on a cloud:
