 *** BEFORE WATCHING*** Parents please watch this YouTube video and checkout the following website to learn how to make a Waldorf Star. Children will need 8 sheets of paper that are square. I used 9X9 construction paper. They can use any color(s). Please don't tell them what they are making. Just have the sheets folded into 8 kites. Please tape the seams so it will be easier for them to handle when assembling. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4rTo8eROpY Website: https://fridabemighty.com/2017/12/09/waldorf-window-star-tutorial/. I highly recommend tape for this project. The video shows nicely how to put the last kite in. I had a hard time doing it because I did not tape all of my kites the same way and had to redo it. This is a fun craft with no cutting. Younger kids will need help with folding and placment, but they will love taping!!

Hands-On Bible classes- Preschool – 5th Grade
9:15 Sunday Morning/ September-May

 

The Bible comes alive when you teach as Jesus taught!

Just as Jesus used everyday objects to teach eternal truths, Hands-On Bible Curriculum uses fun gizmos that help Sunday school leaders teach so kids understand God’s Word, love it and remember it for a lifetime.

Kids can’t wait to get their hands on colorful, fun gizmos. All of Hands-On Bible Curriculum’s gizmos are designed to connect kids with each lesson and naturally lead them to experience God’s word in unforgettable ways.

Kids will discover God’s truth in unforgettable ways, retaining up to 90 percent of what they’re taught! Kids come back week after week because every class is fun, playful, and packed with active learning.
