Kid Made Christmas or Advent Angels

Week one advent is for the ascension when the angel Gabriel came and told Mary that she was to have Gods child.  So this week we made card angels which are perfect child made tree toppers.

These adorable christmas angels are a wonderful kid made tree topper and a fun and achievable christmas craft

  • Coloured card
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Wool
  • Scissors
  • Pens

Draw around a plate on a piece of coloured card and cut out.  Then cut the circle in to a semi circle.

Spread one half of the card with glue and sprinkle on glitter or decorations and leave to dry

make a pattern with glue a long the curved edge of your remaining semicircle and add glitter or other decorations and leave to dry

Draw a head (a smaller circle) on another piece of card (paler coloured) and cut up some wool for her hair.

Glue the hair on to the face and allow to dry.  Small children might find it easy to draw the face, then add the hair and then you cut the face out for them.

Bend the dress around to make a cone shape and tape together and then glue or tape the face on too.

Fold the other semicircle and cut into a wings shape unfold and tape them on the back of the dress.

Optional – You can turn a pipe cleaner into a halo and tape to the back of the angel.

Discussion The Annunciation:

A Child will be Born adapted from Luke 1:26-38 for young children 3

In the city of Nazareth, in Galilee, there lived a young woman named Mary. Mary was soon to marry a carpenter named Joseph.

One day Gabriel, an angel, visited Mary and said: “Greetings, most favored one, and do not be afraid. God has chosen you among all women. Very soon you will have a baby, you must call him Jesus”

This would be a very special baby. He would be great, and his kingdom would last forever and ever. He told her that the child would be called the Son of God.

Mary bowed before the angel Gabriel and told him she would be obedient to God and that she wanted to do as God wished. When she got up the angel had gone.
