Preschool Lesson Plan Printable Activities

Angels are very meaningful as they often come as messengers of important events in many Biblical stories. Make sure to include a favorite Bible story with the craft activity, as part of an Advent activity or to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The craft is a simple depiction of a bell angel.The body and arms are bell shapes.

Make sure to have at least one real bell or jingle bells to explore its sound and sing together.

Note: Play some holiday music while children are doing the craft -- links below.

Printing and assembly options:
The craft is available in color or black line format to color and decorate. Print your choices in the materials column. Ideally, on sturdy paper (card stock), 'foamies' or wallpaper scraps.

Note: We have been working with wallpaper textures and fabrics (leftovers from a local store and from discontinued wallpaper sample books). The children really enjoyed using these materials and we learned about different patterns and textiles. This inspired the use of the colors that resemble fabric in the color version. You may want to try this and it makes a very durable craft/or ornament.

Assembling the craft:

1. Have children color and decorate the templates, if using the coloring format. Optional: Do a color by the number activity - assign colors and number by making a small graph on a corner of the template or a board.

2. Template C-1 or B-1 features a suggested assembly procedure.

3. Add a holiday or Biblical message in the lower border of the large bell.
