Bell Angel


For Day 13 of Crafting to Christmas, ( yes we skipped a few days ), we decided to make a bell angel. This week we started to loosely use abc jesus loves me. This is a great free online homeschool curriculum for preschool ages. We are doing the two year curriculum week 15 and so far loving it.

I have been reading the baby jesus story from The Beginner's Bible for Toddlers. So the bell angel tied into the story. I reminded Virginia how the angel came and talked to Mary in the story telling her she was going to have a baby. 

I printed off the black and white version of the bell angel on card stock so Virginia could color in the angel. After she was finished coloring I cut out the angel. She helped me glue the pieces together. Next I took two loose bells that I had in my craft room. Using a hole punch and pipe cleaners I put the bells onto the bottom of the sleeves of the angel. I punched the hole and threaded the pipe cleaner though the bell. Then threaded the pipe cleaner though the hole of the bottom of the bell. I next just tied a knot on the back side of the angel keeping the bells some what in place. 

At the bottom of the bell is a space to write the child's name. I had created a dotted outline of Virginia's name on a scrap piece of card stock for her to practice writing her name. I loved the first try so I just cut it out and glued it to the bottom of the dress. 

After the angel was complete and all put together we used painters tape and taped it to Virginia's bedroom door. I really enjoyed this craft and it didn't take up to much time.
