Afternoon craft

Make a paper photo frame– this is a very simple series of folds. You start with a square piece of paper. The picture you are framing will be inserted on the diagonal, and the frame will hold a picture less than half the size of the original square, depending on how wide or narrow you make one set of folds.  You can frame a photograph, or have the kids draw a picture the right side to fit in the square, or print out or write a verse to fit inside the square.  You could make the frame, lightly trace the space where the picture should fit, unfold it and colour or write in the square space directly, then refold. Very simple process, but many variations.

I pretty much freehand, guess and by golly it (and it shows), but if you want some practice in precision and math skills, have your kids measure carefully as they go along.


Possible verses:

For I am the LORD your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you: “Do not fear, I will help you.”

Isaiah 41:13

Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

Psalm 56:4
In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?

Psalm 118:6
The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?

Send it to somebody from church, or a grandparent, or somebody you think just might need a tiny bit of encouragement during the Corona Virus Covid-19 Wuhan Flu China Virus pandemic. If you’re suddenly homeschooling because your school shut down, maybe this small activity will help you redirect and distract an anxious student (or mum), and restore some good attitudes. We are all in this isolation thing together, right?
