Wonder-Fully Made!

We know that God made everyone in their own special way.
You and your child can make people puppets that show just how
Wonder-ful you are!

You'll need some paper or card stock,
some crayons or markers,
tape, and straws or popsicle stickes.

And, of course, googly eyes.

Everyone is more wonderful with googly eyes!

You can draw your people, 
or you can google a pattern on line
and print that to use.

You can make a person puppet for
each family member or just
your child

If you want to be very fancy,
you can use yarn for hair, 
scrap fabric for clothes
and cotton balls for those 
grandparents in the family!

You will need to use glue for those items.

Fancy puppets, may call for a fancy mess,
but it will all be
fancy fun!

Color your clothes, hair, shoes, etc to match your own. 

You can match what you're wearing while you make the craft,

 or design something new! 

Once you have finished,

you can put on a puppet show

and thank God for making you 

sooooooooo wonderful!

Fancy Fishes

When God made all the animals, 
He must have had a great time making all the hundreds of different 
fish in the waters! 
Here's a way you and your child can make your own fancy fish!

All you need is some paper 
or cardstock, 
some crayons or markers, 
and some circle stickers 
in fun colors!


Start by drawing an outline of a fish

Fancy Fish are happy fish...

you can tell by the smile on his face.

Make your fish scales by overlapping the circle stickers.

You could make your fish even more fancy by adding 
glitter or stick-on gems.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

God made a wonderful world full of different flowers, trees and all sorts of other plants.  Your child can make his own garden with flowers as individual as he is! 

This is what you will need:
some construction paper, straws, an egg carton base 
markers and tape.

You can make flowers in whatever shapes and colors you would like.
You can draw them with markers, or crayons. 
You can draw faces, or decorate the centers. 
If you are not afraid of the mess, you can even 
add glitter.
Make a set of leaves for each plant.

Cut out the flowers, or just cut around the edge, if the petals are too hard for your child.

Make a hole in the middle of the leaves and thread them on the straw.
Tape one end of the straw to the back of the flower.  
Poke the other end of the straw into the egg carton base.
