Making Christmas Mitten Angels is a wonderful Christmas family service opportunity.
Mitten Angels Stuff: 11/2-inch foam balls, 12-inch squares of white netting material, gold chenille wires, and assorted pairs of children’s knit mittens.
Place one foam ball in the center of a piece of white netting material, then fold the netting around the ball to form the angel’s head. Use a pair of mittens to create the angel’s wings by wrapping a chenille wire around the angel’s neck and the mitten thumbs. Another chenille wire can be used to form a halo.
Let’s Talk: Ask: Describe the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received. Why was it so special? How would Christmas be different if you didn’t receive any presents?
Say: Many people go without gifts at Christmas. These mitten angels can be a very special gift for children in need. I challenge you to make more angels together at home. Bring your mitten angels to our Christmas Eve service, and we’ll deliver the warmth of mittens to a local family or women’s shelter on Christmas morning.
