Fancy Loop Angel

The angel visited Mary in ADVENT, so it is a great Advent craft!

This really fancy angel is surprisingly easy to make. There are two main parts to cut out and several narrow stips of paper.

You really don't have to color it! just add a face.

Most of the Biblical Angels have names that are not familiar to us except the angel that visited Mary and told her she was going to have a baby.

* Investigate theological angel's names at Wikipedia so if your class doesn't want to name their anagel Gabriel, there are plenty of others to choose from.

There are heavy cutting outlines for younger kids and finer outlines for older kids.

If you want to add razzle-dazzle, you can substitute ribbon for the strips of paper. If you use curling ribbon, each piece should be 14" long as it will shorten as it curls up. If you want to use other ribbon, 11 to 12 inch pieces should do. Another idea is to add white glitter to the angel body when you are done.


Advent and/or Christmas Luke 1:26

This is easy on the teacher! Be sure to tell the children about cutting the front and back as one piece AND cutting around the hand, skipping the thumb, first and then going back and cutting out the thumb. The will alleviate accidental ripping.

ASK: List 5 things the angel said to Mary from the Bible story.
