I was teaching about Jesus and his travels to my preschoolers. I told them about the miracles he preformed along the way. We made the craft, after listening to the story of how Jesus made enough food for thousands from 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread. You will need these items:
- pictures of fish and bread loaves
- construction paper
- paper plate
There are pictures on the internet or take your own of bread and fish. Have your preschoolers cut them out if they know how to use scissors, otherwise cut them out. Have the children paste them on the construction paper. Next cut a paper plate in half. Paste one half under the fish and bread so it resembles a basket.
Here is an easy craft for preschoolers. The lesson was on colors. Most kids love rainbows so I decided to make something fun with them. You will need these supplies:
- poster board or long white paper
- green construction paper
- picture of a rainbow
- picture of the sun
- paste or glue
Cut length wise on the poster board or paper about 2 inches wide. Measure your child’s head, before gluing or stapling the ends of the headband together. Find pictures of a rainbow and a sun off the internet and print them out. If it’s a coloring page, the kids can color it first. Paste the rainbow and sun on the front of the headband. Draw a shamrock on the green construction paper. If you draw the heads in the shape of a heart, you shouldn’t have any issues drawing a shamrock. Cut the shamrock out and paste it on the side of the headband. I prefer one shamrock on each side of headband. Have fun. Makes a good St. Paddy’s project.
