Downtime with the little ones in your life is even sweeter when you craft these adorable “fruits” that teach them about the wonderful power of the Holy Spirit
6 paper dessert plates
Craft paint (red, orange, yellow, green and pink)
Colored paper (black, yellow and orange)
Step 1: Cut one of the paper plates into a banana shape. Then paint each plate with bright craft paint, creating six different fruits (lemon, apple, kiwi, banana, watermelon and orange, as shown). Let plates dry completely.
Step 2: Cut small triangles out of yellow and orange paper to create fruit sections for the lemon and orange. Glue the triangles onto the plates, as shown. Use black marker to draw seeds on the apple, kiwi and watermelon.
Step 3: Write one or two fruits of the Holy Spirit (as in Galatians 5:22–23) on each plate. To finish, attach fruit to a length of twine using clothespins, then attach the garland to a wall or window with tape or putty.
