Start by having your child stamp his or her foot, hand, and fingers.
(There are 12 "star" fingerprints around Mary)
I would suggest letting this dry before moving on.
- *tip* When stamping your hand, you might not want to paint all the way up the fingers. I didn't.
- Paint Mary's blue veil around her face.
- Trace around the outside of Mary's crown with gold glitter glue, and add dotted jewels with red glitter glue.
- Paint on Mary's face.
I then let my daughter decorate the stars with glitter glue. Older kids can draw asterisk shapes on top of the fingerprints with the glitter glue.
Here are some of my 4 year old's completed Mary trading cards. She is so proud of these- I'm not sure what she's going to think of mailing them away!
The Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary is coming up on May 31. Happy Catholic Crafting!
