This Little Light of Mine…

We had Grandparents Day at school this week, and each student got to bring a grandparent to school with them!  We had an assembly, and then the grandparents went back to our classroom for a story, craft, and snack.  I decided that we would sing a song and recite our Bible verse for them (I teach at a private school).

We sang “This little light of mine” and waved these little candlesticks that we made!  Once we finished our singing debut, we recited Matthew 5:14a- “You are the light of the world.”  I think the grandparents enjoyed this!

Here is how we made the candlesticks.

I traced these three patterns on construction paper, and I made a variety of candlestick colors for them to choose.

Glue the pieces together, at a stick and glitter!

I had them use a glue stick for the glitter, and then they turned the candle faced down, and rubbed it around in the glitter.  Normally, I use white glue and sprinkle the glitter, but this way was cleaner (my aide suggested this).

The kids had fun making their little lights, and I had fun watching them sing!
