- Plastic spoons (1 per student)
- Metallic pipe cleaners
- Permanent marker
- Construction paper
- Decorations such as glitter, sequins, pompoms, stickers etc.

Teacher Preparation: Pre-cut triangles of construction paper approximately the height of the plastic spoon. Pre-cut metallic pipe cleaners in half.
Step 1. Give each child a spoon and a pipe cleaner. Guide the children in creating a halo with their pipe cleaner with a long enough stem to be securely taped to the spoon (see image).
Step 2. Give each child a paper triangle and a cupcake paper. Instruct them to tape the triangle to the spoon (see image).
Step 3. Guide children in folding the cupcake paper in half to create the angel’s wings. Using a rolled piece of tape placed on the stem of the halo, securely press the angel wings to the spoon. Add additional tape to secure (see images).
Step 4: Turn the angel over and allow children to draw a face and decorate the angel’s robe anyway they like (see image).
