What do the individual Chrismons
|Grades - There are some simple enough Chrismons patterns for preschoolers as well as ones older children and adults might prefer.|
|Kid's Christmas Craft: Jesus symbol ornaments|
These Chrismons can be a simple instant craft activity with just scissors, glue, copies of the pages, yarn or string, and gold and white glitter glue, but they can be so much more!
Suitable for full-sized Christmas tree.
SHAPE BASE Methods:
HANGER YARN Options:
Print or print and copy the entire set of Chrismons - or just one page if you want everyone to make the same Chrismon ornament at one time.
Gather gold and white decorations as shown above or
from the extended list at the bottom of the page.
This depends on whether or not you use the printed or copied page directly, or use other shape base material.
If you are using the pages directly, you are ready to cut and decorate these Christian symbols.
Teacher, talk about the meaning, origin, or information found on the individual page.
The loop goes over the tree branch without any hooks. The face of the ornament is to the viewer of the tree. (That's why it is not necessary to decorate the back!)
Cut and decorate the face of the ornament first. Get a small "Stand" for your Chrismon- a little jar lid or cut apart an ** egg carton and flip one compartment over to make a tiny table (you ma have to trim it a little to even it out). Put a sheet of paper or wax paper under it. Put the Chrismon on top - face up. Hold your glitter glue above the edge and go round the edge as close as you can. Don't worry if it drips - the paper is there to catch it. Let it dry where it is so it won't stick to anything else.
RULES FOR COVERING:
There are no other rules! Enjoy yourself and decorate with aplomb!
