Mary Craft for May Crownings

This is a fun craft of kids for a May Crowning, whether it’s at the church or in your home. And it turns out just beautiful! 

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a Preschool curriculum post, but I had to take some time off for Easter. I can only handle so much at once! 😉 We’re getting close to the end of the alphabet, and that means coming up with stuff for the “weird letters”, which I have been putting off. I’ll admit that I would have rather done “Vestments” or “Vatican” for the letter V, but our preschool co-op has been doing “Virgin Mary” for years and this craft was designed by Denise who used to teach my class before me.

Supplies needed to Complete this Craft:

Printed out picture of Mary

Fun foam

Scissors

Sharpie Marker

Foam Stickers (optional)

Fake flowers on wire (look in the wedding section of your craft store)

Cut your foam sheets into a long rectangle with a hole for a door knob. You can actually buy pre-made door hanger foam things from the Dollar Tree 3 for $1 if you’d rather not cut them yourself. Print out Mary pictures for the kids, and trace around the outside with a sharpie. (This gives them a good line to cut on). Have them cut and glue Mary onto the foam, then take the wire flowers and poke them through the foam around Mary’s head to crown her with flowers. Decorate with additional foam stickers, and write “Virgin Mary” on with a sharpie.

This is a craft that won’t crowd your refrigerator, or your counter space because when kids are done with these, they can hang them on their door and always have Mary around!
