Yes Lord Craft for CCD or Sunday School

Catholic ABC's Week: 29
Letter of the week: Y
Theme: Saying Yes to God!
Saint of the Week: St. Yolanda
Craft: 'Yes Lord' thumbs up craft

I am nearing the end of the alphabet with the letter "Y". I can't believe I'm almost finished! :-) Y was a harder letter to "craft" than I thought it would be, but I'm very happy with this "Yes, Lord" craft I came up with. I was first introduced to the "Yes, Lord" song as a high school youth conference, so it always makes me smile.

This is a very simple craft to make. Just have your child trace their hand, and help them cut it out if necessary. Fold the fingers back to glue it into a thumbs up "Yes", and add a cross. Write "Yes, Lord" with a marker, and tape a string or pipe cleaner on the back to make it into a hang-able ornament.

Here's another variation I made that includes the 
sign language "L" for Lord as well.

Just be sure that when you trace your hand the thumb 
is sticking up nice and high! :-)

Grab Bag Ideas for the Letter Y: (be sure to check out the Classroom Script for directions on using the grab bag.) anything yellow, boat (for yacht), yard sale sign, yard stick, yarn, yearbook, yeast package, yield sign, yo-yo.

Catholic ABC's runs here at Catholic Icing every Wednesday with the new letter of the week. You can find the details of the program here.

    umm... I know what our high schoolers will be doing at CYM on Thursday!!! :) Just kidding, although I love it and they do like this song. I wonder if they will humor me and make this. :)

  2. In my experience, teenagers often enjoy things they pretend not to. :-)

  3. Great idea! Kids of all ages (yes even high school) love to sign this praise and worship song. I can still picture my students raising their fingers and thumbs shouting "yes, Lord, yes, Lord, yes, yes, Lord!"

  4. I'm pretty sure I still sing this song at young adult coffee houses ;)

  5. Nice craft ideas, thanks!

  6. My kids LOVE this song! Can't wait to do this craft with them!

    I love this idea! We are working with our 3 year old that thumbs up is for good manners, down for bad manners, this is a great reinforcer!


Thanks for your comments! They're the icing on my cake ;-)
