Angel Art for A Week

by | Sep 25, 2012 | Angels, Crafts, Michaelmas, St. Michael | 4 comments

One of the themes we studied Along the Alphabet Path during “A Week” was Angels!  (Update:  You can find all our Aa week Activities here!)   With the feasts of Michaelmas, the Archangels, and the Holy Guardian Angels all coming up, I thought it would be fun to make Hand and Foot ARCH Angels as our craft!  These could be made with either paper or finger paint, but I opted for less mess paper!  ðŸ˜‰

Hand and Foot Print Angel Art
Adapted from All Free Crafts

Supplies:

  • Construction Paper (Blue, White, Tan, and additional color of choice)
  • Glue Stick
  • Crayons or Markers
  • Sparkly Chenille Stem

Directions:

Using white construction paper, trace around both of your hands (or have someone do this for you) to make the angel’s wings.

Next, trace around one of your feet (including the Arch) to make the shape for the angel’s body.

Cut out the foot and hand shapes, as well as a circle for the angel’s face.  (We found a small round vase to use to trace the circle.) Arrange on your blue background construction paper and glue in place.

For the halo, cut a little piece of sparkly chenille and shape it into a halo.  We poked a little hole in the paper, sticking the stem/end of the halo through the hole and taping it down on the back side of the paper.   (That way it wouldn’t leave a line/bump on the angel’s face.)  You could also use glittery yarn or glitter glue for the halo.

 Using markers or crayons, add two eyes, a mouth, and hair (if desired).

With a concerned crooked smile, Snuggles said “Look mom he’s smiling like this!”   

Our little pre-schooler is also enjoying participating in some of the Alphabet Path fun!   It’s hard to believe I was pregnant with her when the girls completed “A Week” and made their Rainbow Wool Angels.

You can find additional ideas for the upcoming Angelic Feast days in the archives under Links for September and October.

    I thimk I'll start this with my three and five year olds as well. Do you "do school" for them first in the day, so as to give them attention first? I can't divide my attention among them well, and I'm trying to figure the best way to do it. 🙂

    Lately I have been waiting until I have all the older kids working on their school work independently, and then get started with the younger ones. I seem to be able to spend a little time with them early in the day, and then more time in the afternoon. We're still working on figuring out the best schedule for us all this year… It's tough with this many kids! 🙂

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
