Praise Puppet
 
What You Will Need
-plastic flip-top cap (ones that come from shampoo bottles)
-masking tape
-white glue
-scissors
-red construction paper
-two wiggle eyes
-tiny pom-pom
-2 inch pom-pom
-markers
 
What You Will Need to do:
Turn the cap upside-down.  The top of the cap will form the bottom jaw of the puppet. Cover the outside of the cap with masking tape.  You can use the masking tape shade for the skin color or use markers to make the skin another color.
Trace around the cap on the red paper.  Cut the circle out.  Use a marker to write "Praise God" on the circle.  Put a piece of masking tape on the inside of the bottom jaw to create a better gluing surface.  Glue the circle inside the mouth of the puppet.
Use a marker to draw a smile on the bottome center of the jaw.
Put a tiny square of masking tape on the back of each wiggle eye to create a better gluing surface.  Glue the eyes to the face, above the open mouth.  Glue the tiny pom-pom just below the eyes for the nose.
Put a strip or two of masking tape inside the cap, again to create a better gluing surface.
Glue one side of the large pom-pom in the cap with most of it sticking out for hair.

In The Beginning
(from Shining Star Publications 1992)
 
"And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light."  Gensis 1:3

-1 1/2" to 2" Styrofoam balls

-silver and gold metallic pipe cleaners

What To Do:
Cut the pipe cleaners into 2"sections.  Pour silver and gold glitter into a dish and mix.  Pour glue into another small dish.
Have children roll balls around in the glue to coat them.  Then they drop the balls in the glitter dish and roll them around again to coat them.  They gently pick up the balls and poke the pipe cleaner sections into them.  They may set their sparkly decorations in the window as glittery reminders of the Lord's gift of light.

Message Magic

 

What You Will Need:

Fold a piece of construction paper in half lengthwise.  With the fold at the bottom, write in cursive the word Jesus, letting the letters touch the fold.  Write only the top half of the letter J.  Make your letters large and have space between them.

Leave the paper folded and cut around the letters, leaving a little space around each letter.  Do not cut where the letters touch the fold.  Unfold the paper.

Put a little glue on the back of the cut paper.  Lay it vertically on top of a second sheet of construction paper (a different color!) and press it down.  Let the glue dry.
