Guardian/ Archangel Angel Feast Day Craft!

imageFor special feast days in our house the kids love to have a tea party (they love treats, whom doesn’t), make a craft, say a prayer and learn a little about the feast we are celebrating. October is just full of so many wonderful feasts – St. Therese, Guardian Angel, Archangels, St. Francis of Assisi, and many more! One feast we always have a lot of fun with is the Archangel Feast – my kids just love making paper craft angels. This year we decided to try something new here is a wonderful and easy idea my daughter came up with. You just need scissors, coloured paper and glue or tape.

Step 1: Get a coloured piece of paper, pencil, scissors and glue or tape.

Step 2: Decide on the size angel you want – then draw a circle for the head, 1 wing and draw two half circles, the bottom one longer, then connect these two with lines at an angel.image

Step 3: Cut out your first wing, then trace  the wing on he paper so that the wings are the same size. Cut out your second wing.

Step 4: Cut the circle and the angels body.

Optional – If you are planning to make more angels trace the cut outs on to paper now. Then you only have to cut and glue and can save time for future angels.

Step 5: Glue or tape the Angels body by connecting the two outside edges.

Step 6: Glue the Angels head to the front of the body.

Step 7: Glue the Wins

Step 8: Repeat as much as you like to create a rainbow of beautiful Angels!

Other ideas – glue the angel prayer to the angels body, glue a sword on the angel to represent St. Michael, etc.
