I have been making saints with my class for years. It has evolved from complicated tracing patterns to this simple fold and create technique.
To create the paper saints, simply follow the step by step directions. Each saint begins the same way. I use construction paper as the base. Ideas for how to differentiate the details for each saint are given. I have given you templates for some of the details, but not all of them.
The labels and symbols included can be glued onto the front or back of the saint.
Each saint has a poster with a few facts about each one.
If you would rather do coloring pages instead of the paper saint, those pages are included as well.
Here are the saints and symbols included:
Saint Nicholas - shoes, coin bag
Saint Patrick - clover, pirate ship
Saint Therese - rose, broom
Saint Bernadette - rosary/praying, water
Saint John the Baptist - baptism, honey, shell
Saint George - dragon, knight
Saint Elizabeth of Hungary - crown, roses/bread basket
Saint Joseph - nativity, carpenter tools
Saint Francis of Assisi - crucifix, wolf
Saint Clare - monstrance, praying
Saint Peter - key, fish
Saint Kateri - crucifix and lily
