I went with a cluster of grapes for this craft which would keep things simple. I like simple, & considering my mil is under the weather and staying with us I love simple even more!
This craft & Bible reading took us about 20 minutes, or the same length of time it took for my mother-in-law to engage in a very interesting phone call with my brother-in-law! I like quick too, did I mention that alongside simple?
Today's supplies are pretty simple: Glue sticks, green & purple circles cut from construction paper. You'll need to google for a grapevine pattern if you're not up to drawing one yourself.
I cheated with the circles & went the quick and simple route and used my 1" scrapbooking punch. I love that thing, & have another one a bit bigger. Anyway, it works really well and was just the right size. Just sit and punch a few out.
Trim your free printout as desired. I removed the reference to Mom & trimmed the sides down a bit. I wanted to keep things small and simple to fit into a notebook when they were done. Most likely many glued to a piece of paper and then slipped in. This worked for us.
Have your crafters color the grape leaves and vines. Mine did this while I read the parable to them directly from my Bible & then read them the clues & facts from our Mission Possible book.
Cover your paper in glue from your glue stick and arrange the circles as desired to make a nice large cluster of grapes. I don't recommend laying out your grapes first before spreading the glue on because little crafters get frustrated when they can't reduplicate it exactly as they had it. Remember quick & simple.
That's it, just hang it up to dry! On a side note, we won't be sharing anymore crafts until our Monday again as we won't be doing any this weekend. We have a party & outing scheduled for the weekend & I'd like the devotional to last them until Easter.
