All Saints' Day Craft Project for Kids
All Saints' Day crafts can give kids something besides Halloween to focus on. (craft supply image by robert mobley from Fotolia.com)

Many religious families would rather have their children focus on All Saints' Day (Nov. 1) than on the spookiness of Halloween (Oct. 31). Fun kid's crafts can help educate them about the importance of All Saints' Day.

Ice Cream Spoon Saints

Small wooden ice cream spoons can serve as the basis for a whole series of tiny saints. Have the children pick a few saints and draw their faces on the spoons with markers, then use construction paper or scraps of fabric to "dress" them. Give each one some visual element unique to that saint.

A Mobile of Saints

A mobile of saints reminds children that they, too, have a place in the communion of saints. Use colouring book pictures of the saints as a basis for this craft. Have the children colour in their favourite saint's picture, then let them draw their own self-portraits. Glue the saint's picture and the kid's self-portraits together, and hang them as a mobile.

Saintly Jacko'-Lanterns

Carve saintly jack-o'-lanterns for All Saint's Day. Create a template of your favourite saint, or of a religious scene involving a saint, and transfer it to a hollowed out pumpkin. Carve carefully along the lines of the template, then light the "saint-o'-lantern" up from inside.
