MARY : Advent Christmas Crafts
Advent Crafting: Day 1 Mary
One of the truly great women of the Bible is Mary, the mother of Jesus.
She was a woman of faith, courage, humility, praise, and prayer. She was a good wife and mother, and an exemplary disciple of Christ.
The younger children created
Mother & Child homemade ornaments
This project is pretty self explanatory.
Print out the templates.
Color them in (if you choose the black and white templates) printing out the templates from First School
Cut them out and assemble with glue.
Adhere to card stock or heavier paper to create a handmade ornament that can be hung through the top star.
Make sure to read the biblical account of the story to your children to give them a greater appreciation of the project they are completing.
Here are some excellent kids craft ideas. We use these each year in our house. These Christmas crafts emphasize the TRUE meaning of Christmas - Jesus Christ's birth. Religious Christmas crafts are suitable for church, Sunday School and family gatherings. Take time away from the hustle and bustle of commercialism and gather your family for some biblically based learning and memory making.
We chose to turn this image into a simple ornament. Printed with an ink jet on regular paper we then brushed it with oil to create a semi translucent image. We cut a simple frame from black construction paper And completed the project by hanging it on the tree with a single strand of gold thread.
(its a small image right click and "save as" to print)
There are many beautiful images of Mary. Simply Google Virgin Mary to find one suitable for your family.
next Advent Craft the Annunciation
Commentary excerpt on the Virgin Mary: We do not know how cold, or perhaps even snowy, it was that December day in Galilee when the young woman we know as Mary was surprised by the angel Gabriel.  We do know that Mary would have been in her early teenage years, most likely twelve to fourteen years old. We can tell her age because she was engaged, but not yet married, to a man named Joseph, and yet was physically mature enough to both have and rear God’s Son, something she did for at least a couple of years without much family support. While twelve to fourteen may seem very young to us, it was common in biblical times for women to be married at that age, and much older than fourteen would have been uncharacteristically old for marriage in her culture. We can better understand the great courage and faith Mary had when we realize that she was not a middle-aged and experienced woman of the world, but rather a young woman of faith who accepted the call to be the mother of the Christ.
