Making these Christmas Mitten Angels is a wonderful service opportunity for families in your church to show Jesus’ love this Christmas.
- 11/2-inch foam balls,
- 12-inch squares of white netting material,
- gold chenille wires,
- and assorted pairs of children’s knit mittens.
Meaningful Family Service Project: Christmas Mitten Angels
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.
- 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 service project to our Christmas Eve service, and we’ll deliver the warmth of mittens to a local family or women’s shelter on Christmas morning.
