Letter of the week: Q
Theme: Queenship of Mary
Saint of the Week: Mary, Queen of the Saints
Craft: Queenship of Mary Sun catcher
This adorable craft was actually developed by the lady who used to teach my preschool class before me. It's one of my favorites! I did change it up a little.
Materials Needed To Complete This Craft:
- Wax Paper
- Black Fabric Paint (glue mixed with paint*)
- Stained Glass Paint (or regular paint mixed with glue**)
- Colored paper
- Gold glitter glue
Last year the kids made them a little differently. Here are some more pictures:
I like these ones with the stars, but it's very time consuming to draw them all with the fabric paint, so I skipped them. They really do look really cute hanging up in the window!
