Crafty Crafters: Ascension

So how crafty are you?

What is your favorite religious craft you make for Ascension?

Here is a craft you can make using a blue plastic solo cup:

Ascension of Jesus Craft from Oriental Trading Company. Ascension of Jesus Craft for Kids

Lacy adapted this craft to suit her needs and also provides us with a printable Jesus to disappear into the clouds.

*I printed out Lacy's Jesus (I made it a little smaller so it would fit inside the cup) and glued it to cardboard. I then cut it out for the students and put a hole in the top to string yarn through prior to class. I also put a hole in the bottom of all the cups for the yarn to be pulled through. During class the students colored Jesus and glued cotton balls on the blue Solo cup for clouds. I attached Jesus to the yarn and helped the students string the yarn through the cup and tied a big knot on the end so it would not fall out.

Please comment so I can add the link to your blog to this post. We would love to see what you do!

I love how simple this craft is—oftentimes, I look at the end result and think that the craft would be ideal for an upcoming lesson. However, once I see how complicated the actual craft is, I know that my kids won't be able to do it easily. This one, though, is perfect for my students' age range. Thank you for sharing!
