344 - Journey to Damascus


Shiny bunting

15 minute Craft planner

You will need:
Bunting flag template (see Printables)
kitchen foil
String cut into 40 cm lengths
String cut into 10 cm lengths
Hole reinforcement stickers
Glue sticks
Small scraps of felt, a yellow duster or other soft fabric cut into small pieces

How to prepare:
Print one or two templates. Use the templates to cut out sufficient bunting flag shapes from the kitchen foil for one or two per child. Make a bunting flag so that the children know what they are making. 

How to make:


1. Draw around the template and cut out a bunting flag from a sheet of kitchen foil. Fold the flag in half. Open out the flag and place a 30 cm piece of string in the fold.

2. Arrange pieces of string and stickers in a pattern on the bottom half of the flag.

3. Spread a thin layer of glue on the top half of the flag. Fold the top and bottom halves of the flag together. Gently rub the small piece of cloth across the foil until you can clearly see the raised pattern beneath.

4. Collect together the flags made in your group. Tie the pieces of string together to make a length of shiny bunting. If you have time make a second flag and add it to the bunting. Hang the bunting somewhere in your church building where it will reflect the sunlight.

Remind the children that light flashed around Saul on the road to Damascus.
