1. Children used a metallic marker to write their favorite thoughts about the upcoming holidays on a sheet of black paper. Black scrapbook paper will work better than just construction paper, if you can afford it.
2. They drew themselves on a piece of colored paper, traced in black and colored with colored pencils. Cutting themselves out, they were to leave a little extra paper around the edge so that all of the black lines stayed intact.
3. Placing their bodies on another sheet of paper, they drew wings to fit the body. The lines were also traced in black, cut and glued to the back of the body.
4. Finally, the angel was glued to the black paper.
