This is a simple decoration a child can do. You will need:
- old Holiday cards
- paste / glue
This is a great project for Christmas and can be hung on the tree. It can also be used for Valentine’s Day for shaping the garland into a heart shape instead of a square around the picture.
Have cards ready for the child. Glue or paste the garland around the rim of the card. Glue ribbon on the top, if it is to be hung up. In the case of Valentines, this step can be omitted.
Here is a simple craft for the preschooler. You will need these supplies.
- heart stickers
- paper doily
- red ribbon
Fold the paper doily on its sides so it looks like a flower basket. Tie a red bow on the end. Fill the “basket” with heart stickers.
Preschoolers have a short attention span and I wanted them to learn about the church in a fun way. I came up with this project. You can find pictures on the internet and print them out. I traced a picture of a church and applied it to construction paper. Then take another piece of construction and only trace the main part of the church without the steeple to represent the inside of the church. I used pictures of a bell, candle, cross, and an altar or draw them yourself.
- 2 sheets of construction paper
- tracing paper and pencil
- pictures of cross, bell, altar, church, candle, chalice
- glue / paste
After you have the two sheets of construction paper ready, have the kids paste / glue the candle, altar, and chalice on the inside of the church picture. Set it aside. Then glue the bell, and cross on the outside church picture. I also had the kids color in the windows. Glue / paste the edge of the front of church to the inside. Now they have a 3-D picture.
I’ve been teaching preschoolers religion and came up with this idea so they could learn their prayers. You will need:
- construction paper
- punch holder
- picture of child praying
- glue or paste
Fold two construction papers together like a book. Punch three holes on the edge. Pull ribbon through each hole and tie in a knot. On the front cover of prayer book, paste/ glue a picture of a child praying. You can find pictures on the internet or take a photo
of a child in the process. On the inside, you can write on each page the prayer you want the child to learn. I found a picture of a child doing the sign of the cross and added it to the book.
