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.
