The wings are the pages of the book. Children open the wing pages to reveal facts about angels.

Pages include:

1. Angels protect and guard people from harm.

2. Angels are God's messengers.

3. Angels fight battles.

4. Angels can appear to look like ordinary people.

5. Satan is a fallen angel.

6. We do not become angels when we die.

What you will need:

Card Stock, Printer Paper, Colored Pencils or Crayons, and Glitter or Glitter Glue

 

What to do:

1. Before class print out the patterns and cut out the patterns. Patterns available to members and as an instant download.

3. In class have your children place the wings pages on top of each other from largest to smallest. Staple the wing pages together and then staple or glue them to the back of the angel cover as shown in the picture.

4. Have your children color the angel book and add glitter glue to make it shiny.

5. Have older children write more facts they have learned about angels on the backs of each page. Or you can cut out blank angel wing patterns and have them write their own facts.

2. Prepare a list of questions relating to the lesson.

3. In class give each child an angel playing piece and have them color them or write their names or initials on them.

4. The game can be played in several different ways.

Game 1 - Take turns asking each child a question. If he gets the answer correct, he gets to throw the die and move that many clouds up towards heaven. The child to reach "Home" first wins.

Game 2 - Use only game board 1 and 3 for a shorter board. Take turns asking each children a question. If a child gets the question right, he gets to move one space up towards heaven. You can also have the children play in teams so there aren't as many angel pieces on the board.

Game 3 - Make three sets of questions, easy, medium, and hard. Easy questions are worth one space, medium questions are worth two spaces, and hard questions are worth three spaces. Take turns asking your children questions. Let each child pick what set of questions they would like to answer - easy, medium, or hard. If the child gets the question correct, he gets to move that many spaces. The child who gets to the home cloud first wins.

I teach a children’s church class of 24+ children ages 3-6. We loved the folded paper angel craft, but with so many children (and varying spans of attention), I found it difficult to work with glue. As an alternative suggestion, pipe cleaners work very well. We used glitter pipe cleaners to wrap round the middle of the angel’s body and wings and then attached a pompom ball.  The children absolutely loved the angel lesson. Thank you for all you do to make teaching fun! Pam

One thing I love about the lessons and crafts are that they can be adapted to different situations.  Living in Uganda we don't have access to all of the supplies listed, but there is usually something I can substitute.  In making the folded paper angel, I used a cotton ball for the head instead of a pompom.  For the decoration at the bottom, I cut shapes into the "skirt" while it was still folded just as you would do for a snowflake.  It came out very nice.  Thank you for your work!  It sure makes the teachers' preparation and teaching go easier.
