DLTK's Bible Crafts for Kids
angel quotesAngel Messages in a Jar

There are a lot of uses for this craft.  Here are just a few thoughts:

There are a few ways to do this project, depending on the age of your child.  I've provided some blank templates so that children who are able to write can put their own quotes on (good for writing and spelling practice).  I've also provided some pre-written templates for younger children to practice their cutting and coloring skills.

I prefer the B&W template, as it gives the children the chance to showcase their coloring skills.  But if one child is preparing a whole batch of them on their own, you might want to print one color template and one B&W template (there are 6 angels on each template) so the child doesn't get tired of coloring angels *grin*.

Here's an additional idea contributed by Cindy, Michael, Sarajane, Elizabeth & Rebekah:  

Our K-5 evening group at church hasn't met for 3 months because the leader had to resign.  Last week someone new was going to help. She said she could do the music if I came up with an activity for the 2nd half hour. I searched my favorite kids sites and found the angel hearts.  They were great. I traced a large heart cookie cutter and we put two together to make an "envelope" to hold the angels. We folded the front one down in half and used glue stick on the edges to hold them together. We used other smaller hearts I cut out to decorate the envelopes and then the kids took them home. Even the boys liked the craft and sometimes they are hard audience. In fact I think the 3rd grade boys liked it better than any of the girls. I read them the story of St. Valentine also.  This week I am preparing to send care packages to the college students from our church who go to school out of town. I am going to include some angel hearts in their boxes also!  Click here for the size template they used for the envelopes.
