The children will learn that just as different psalms are often used during certain parts of the Liturgical Year, banners can be used to remind us of the season of the Church year that we are celebrating
Candle with evergreens (Advent)
Star or manger (Christmas)
Crown of thorns, cross, nails (Lent)
Butterfly, empty tomb (Easter)
Fire, dove, wind, or water (Pentecost)
Flowers, loaves and fishes (Ordinary Time)
Suggest that the children create their banner designs on scrap paper first and then work as a group on the large felt rectangles for the final product.
Tacky glue works better than Elmer's glue on felt.
This project could be extended over two sessions in order to give the children more time to complete it.
Hang only one banner at a time in your prayer center, matching it to the current season of the Liturgical Year
If there are children in your group with special needs (physical, visual, hearing, language, or behavioral disabilities), adapt the activity accordingly.
