Crafty Crafters: Baptism of Jesus

So how crafty are you?

What is your favorite religious craft you make for the Baptism of Jesus?

Here is a craft I make with my students for the Baptism of Jesus:

Introduce craft: What hovered over Jesus’ head after he was baptized? (A white dove.)

Taking Flight- A bird that can be a dove that you make out of white paper and using the child's handprints. (From the Hands of a Child by Anthony Flores, page 41).

*Every craft in this book is illustrated with materials listed and patterns provided. Very easy step by step directions that even a 1st grader can read and follow and make the craft by himself.

Please leave a comment so others can get ideas for crafts.
