Catholic ABC’s Week: 6
Letter of the week: A
Saint of the Week: St. Anthony
Craft: “A” is for Angel Craft
This week we are learning the letter “A”, and “A” is for Angel! When you’re making this craft with your little angel, take the opportunity to teach them about angels.
Materials Needed to Complete this Craft:
- Construction paper (white and blue)
- Manila file folder
- Doll hair (available at any craft store for a very reasonable price) or hair colored yarn
- paint (blue)
- foam letter stickers (optional)
If you’re doing this with a preschooler, you need to do some prepping before you start. Trace a circle onto a manila file folder and cut it out. Draw a simple angel face onto the circle with a marker. Also cut out a triangular dress shape for the angel from blue construction paper.
Give your child a piece of white construction paper and have them glue down their angel dress, and then their angel head onto the paper. Paint their hands with the blue paint and help them to stick hand prints onto the angel for the “wings”. Put glue all around the angel’s head and let your little one stick on the doll hair or yarn to give the angel hair. Let them stick on an “A” sticker or just write on Angel with a marker.
This would be a great Guardian Angel Craft if you wrote “Angel of God my Guardian Dear” on it.
