Even though angels are traditionally associated with Christmas time, they are actually present in several places throughout the Old Testament (Garden of Eden, Balaam’s Donkey, Abraham’s Visitors, Jacob Wrestling, Fiery Furnace, etc), so this is a great craft to have up your sleeve when looking for an additional activity for a lesson. I mentioned it briefly in this Christmas themed post, but I’ll share a few more pictures and details in this post.

What You Need:
- Paper Plates (2 for each child)
- Circle Template to trace (optional)
What You Do:
Begin by cutting a triangle out of one paper plate, going all the way to the edges. Cut the other paper plate in quarters. Place two quarter pieces behind the triangle and staple in order to form the body of the angel.
Apply glue to the edges of the paper plate and sprinkle with glitter. Silver is my personal favorite. We’re using Martha Stewart glitter here.
Use the circle template to cut out a head for the angel. Ours is a little too small here, as you can see!
Staple the head in plate and add a loop of yarn for hanging if you’d like!
