Rainbow God's Eye Craft
Another old school craft for the Sunday School set. Surely you made these at summer camp or in school at some point in your life? If not - break out the popsicle sticks (or twigs) and yarn and get weaving.
We were studying Noah's Ark and I always try to add an artistic/crafty component when I teach. So I thought this was a great time to make mini God's Eyes with some rainbow yarn we had on hand. The symbolism of God's Eye speaks for itself and the rainbow is to remind us of the rainbow Noah saw after the flood.
I prepped this craft ahead of time by gluing the popsicle sticks together to make it easier for the kids to hold. I wrapped up one completed God's Eye and measure that yarn and then pre-cut the rest of the yarn for the kids ahead of time too.
They really enjoyed the craft. So much so that for mornings afterward, when we had some of our friends over to walk to school with us - the maniacs brought out the popsicle sticks and yarn and gave their friends tutorials on how to make them.
Lil' Mermaid even helped Luke make his own God's Eye and "Craft Stick Art".
Hot Rod made so many that he tied them to his backpack and started a mini-trend at his school and soon several backpacks were sporting mini God's Eyes too!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
