Clothespin Angel

This week we have been talking about the shepherds and angels a lot, but Vale has had a hard time grasping the concept of an angel. Not like “Wow! What an amazing being from heaven.” More like “It has wings! It’s a butterfly.” Seriously, everytime she sees an angel, she thinks it’s a butterfly. So today we are tackling this concept with a little intentional conversation and an fun craft.

Clothespin Angel:

What you need:

  • Clothespin
  • Coffee filter
  • Glitter washi tape
  • Construction paper circle
  • Sharpie
  • Glue

What you do:

  1. Attach washi tape to clothespin.
  2. Draw a face on paper circle and glue it to clothespin.
  3. Pinch coffee filter into clothespin.
  4. Attach string and hang on tree.

As we made this craft we talked about the angels that visited the shepherds, and how they sang, because Jesus was born.
