Our L-rds Christmas Candle 1

Posted: December 24, 2012 in Vintage Curriculum


Candles today are considered dangerous but reality is candles have been a staple of life in one form or another since the fall of man. Indeed, candles not only bring light but are a mentioned in the Bible in various forms. 

David describes  a burning candle in Psalm 119:105, “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path,” as symbolic of the belief that biblical scripture provides wisdom, direction, faith, and eternal life to those that believe in and follow its commands.

Candles symbolize G-d’s resurrected presence that shines the light of Christ’s glory in our lives. 

 The candle flame represents both the Holy Spirit and light.

Tabernacle services were held in the first temple by lamp ( a type of candle) light. Lamp lighting is also mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles. (Acts 20:8) “And there were many lights in the upper chamber.” In this instance they were to see with. They allowed for the reading of the word, also to administer the ordinance of the supper. They provided for the comfort and pleasure of the whole company, both preacher and hearers; as well as to remove all ground of suspicion, or occasion of reproach.

The Menorah, a seven branched candle stick designed like an almond branch was on the south wall in the Holy Place of the Tabernacle. The western branch never went out and was used as the eternal flame. The four in the center were lit at night. The two on the eastern side were lit in the day and relit at night. In the actual sanctuary there were seven Menorahs.

Candles are lit as a sign of hope and faith in G-d, as well as a symbol of a burning love for G-d . Burning candles are a reminder of the Light of Heaven. Lit candles remind us that Jesus is the light of the world… the light we should follow. At a time of G-d’s own choosing, He came, to shine a light in a spiritually dark world.
Candles are a symbolic reminder of Christ’s Passion, which is the Cross and what was accomplished there, the redemption of mankind unto Himself.

The Hebrew word denotes properly any kind of candle, lamp or torch. The spirit of man is the candle of the L-RD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.  (Prov. 20:27), Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (Matt. 5:14), an image of prosperity as in Job 21:17 – How often is the lamp of the wicked put out! and how often comes their destruction upon them! G-d distributes sorrows in His anger, and in Prov. 13:9 – The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

WHOAH…ON MY FACE!!!

Dig these Candle Fingerplays and Songs:

Five Little Candles

Five little candles twinkling on the tree.
The first one said, “What do you see?”
The second one said, “I see Santa big and jolly.”
The third one said, “I see Christmas wreathes or holly.”
The fourth one said, “What do you hear?”
The fifth one said, “Children singing loud and clear,”
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.” 

Another Version: 

5 little candles sitting in a row
The first one said, “I’m starting to glow.”
The second one said, “Let’s chase away the dark.”
The third one said, “I’m happy as a lark!”
The fourth one said, “Christmas is so much fun.”
The fifth one said, “I’m bright as the sun!”
Bang! went the firecracker, down went the sparks
and the 5 little candles glowed in the dark.

Five Little Lamps

Little Nancy Etticoat,
In a white petticoat,
And a red nose;
The longer she stands,
The shorter she grows.
(A candle.)

 
Sing to: Silver Bells
Candlelight, candle bright,
You bring the warmth of the season.
Glowing bright, candlelight,
You light the night with your peace.
 

Sing to: I Am a Little Teapot

Here is a little candle dressed in white,
Wearing a hat of yellow light.
When the night is dark, then you will see
Just how bright this light can be.
Here’s a little candle straight and tall,
Shining it’s light upon us all.
When the night is dark, then you will see
Just how bright this light can be.
Here’s a little candle burning bright.
Keeping us safe all through the night.
When the night is dark, then you will see
Just how bright this light can be!

Lay out your old newspaper to cover your work space. I put the tissue squares into small bowls according to color: 


Liquid starch is a bit hard to find now-a-days but thanks to Amazon…NOT a prob:

Pour the starch into a low bowl to prevent spills. Using a paint brush, dip the brush into the starch and brush it onto the toilet paper roll.  paint brush we dig these and have several sets:

Give your babe a paint brush and instruct them to dip it into the starch first, then paint some starch onto the toilet tube. Now have them choose a tissue square, then direct them to place it over the area they just painted. If necessary, paint over the tissue square to adhere it to the tube. Continue painting starch and placing tissue until the entire tube is covered. Be sure to paint starch over any squares that are not completely covered. All squares must be covered well. When finished, set aside to dry.


Using your glue gun, attach the pine needles to the bottom edge of your tube, then attach the pom poms to look like berries.

Now when your babes are gone, cut one square @ 5 X 5 of yellow tissue and another square of either orange or red. Place the red or orange square on top of the yellow tissue then place your toy or candy on top as pictured below:

 


Next wrap your toy by gathering the points and bring them up, then place it inside your tube like this:

 

Glue the tissue paper to the tube rim, then let dry. Now take a pipe cleaner an gently wrap it around the tissue paper near the rim of the tube to make a flame. We used shiny ones like these:

Now glue the tips of one yellow heart like this:
O.K. so I only have a picture of the red heart but you get my drift. Then stick the other yellow heart onto one dot like this:
Now fold the hearts to make a flame and paper clip them together on both sides like this:

 Need paper clips?

         http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=akingar-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=B001B0D5T6&ref=tf_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr           http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=akingar-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=B00078A6G8&ref=tf_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr               http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=akingar-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=B0019IMSU2&ref=tf_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr



Remove the clips after 5 – 7 minutes so the clips do not stick to the paper, you just need the clips to secure the glued points. Let dry. Now get your cotton ball and carefully pull it until you get a circle inside the middle. Then place the flame tip inside the cotton ball like this:


Need jumbo cotton balls?

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=akingar-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=B004JYLHGO&ref=tf_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr

Next glue inside the tube rim and secure the cotton ball in place. Now cut off some holly from the garland and glue gun it to the bottom rim.

Now glue the egg cup to the top of the tube and let dry. We put a Christmas sticker on top of the egg cup as an additional touch but this step is optional.

Now get a piece of your half page sales flyer and lay it out. Take your school glue and glue around the bottom edge and top rim of the egg cup. Open the pour spout of the glitter. Have your babe hold the glitter jar and together, pour the glitter over the glue over the laid out flyer. Your babe may want to shake, but do NOT let them or glitter will fly!!! Instruct them, “Pour, not shake.” Set the glitter down, gather up the ends of the flyer, have your babe hold the glitter bottle while you pour the glitter back into the jar.Let dry.

Next take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around outside of the tube. Use the glue gun to secure it in place. 
Using the marker, wrap half of the gold pipe cleaner around the marker leaving @ 1 inch straight at the bottom:

Then wrap the other half around the pencil:

Using your sharp pointed instrument, poke a small hole in the top of the egg cup and insert the gold pipe cleaner. 
Next wrap a piece of foil around a small paper plate:



Cut a 2” strip out of the middle of the other paper plate and wrap it in foil: 

Now curl the strip and glue it together with the glue gun, then adhere it to the plate.   Take another piece of foil and wrap it around your nut cup:

Cut the egg holder portions apart. Cut the foil into squares large enough @ 4” X 4” to cover each egg holder. Poke a small hole in the end of each egg holder Personally, I use a letter opener, if you do not have one, an ice pick is cool or some other strong pointed object. 
O.K. now, take one piece of foil square and wrap it around the outside of the egg holder folding the edges into the inside of the egg holder.
Then take your chosen colored pipe cleaner (see above under materials) cut it in half. Now slip one jingle bell on one end of the pipe cleaner and twist to secure it. Next poke the other end of the pipe cleaner through the hole from the underside of the egg holder. Wrap your embellishment around the pipe cleaner, loop the pipe cleaner into a circle and twist the ends to secure.
Hang your bell on your tree and watch it reflect the lights. WHOAH, they turned out more bitchener than I thought, why even Julian’s plain bell orn rocks the Christmas Tree scene!!!

Directions: 

Make a “Master Pattern”


Print out your Bell template. If using an empty cereal box you will need to make a “Master Pattern” by stapling the printed template onto a piece of tagboard then cut out. 

Using Your Master Pattern

Cut out one of the large sections of the box. Trace your pattern onto the cut out box section. Cut the pattern out. Trace the clapper piece onto a piece of  construction paper and cut out. 

Clapper Assembly

Glue the construction paper clapper onto the cardboard clapper, then set the clapper aside to dry. 

Once the clapper is dry, you may either place a Christmas sticker or glitter on the end of the clapper as shown in the example picture.  If using glitter, let dry.

Bell 

Pour some liquid starch into a bowl. Scatter some tissue squares on a flat surface such as a tray for easy color selection.  Have your child dip the brush into the liquid starch and brush the starch onto a section of their bell. Direct them to take a piece of tissue paper and lay it on top of the starch painted section. Brush some starch over the tissue and repeat until all areas have been covered with the tissue squares. Set aside to dry. 

Poem

Glue the following poem onto the bell, let dry:

How many days till Christmas? 
It is mighty hard to tell. 
Take off one link every night
When the Sandman casts his spell.
Christmas will be here
By the time you reach the bell.

Another Version:
December first to Christmas
is the longest time of the year.
It seems as though old Santa
never will appear. How many
days until Christmas? It is mighty
hard to count. This paper chain
will tell you the exact amount.
Undo a link each evening when
the sandman casts his spell.
Christmas will be here by the
time you reach the bell.

 

Advent Chain

Next make a chain out of the construction paper using 25 – 1″ X 8 1/2″  strips. Now decorate each strip using Christmas stickers, glitter designs, or you can number them 1 – 24.  If using glitter, let dry. Now take one strip, turn it in a circle and glue the ends together. Take another strip and loop it through the first circle then glue the ends together. Repeat the process until 24 strips are connected. Let dry. Loop the last strip through the chain but do not turn the ends towards each other, lay them flat on top of each other and glue them together. Glue the chain with the flattened end on to the strip of the clapper. This last link only attaches the chain to the clapper so keep it as flat and as short as you can so it does not look like a link as again, it is only a connector. Let dry.

Hanging

Punch a hole in the top of the bell. Run the pipe cleaner through the hole, loop and twist for the hanger. Hang your Christmas Bell Advent where your child is able to reach it. Every night before they go to bed, have them tear off a link indicating the day is done. When all 24 links are torn off, the next day is Christmas.

Make a “Master Pattern”


Print out your Bell Foto Ornament template. If using an empty cereal box you will need to make a “Master Pattern” by stapling the printed template onto a piece of tagboard then cut out. Also cut the inside circle out but do NOT discard.

Using Your Master Pattern

Trace your “Master Pattern” onto your chosen color foam sheet, then cut out. Using the inside circle as a guide, place it on your chosen craft foam, enlarge the circle by adding an extra 1/4″ – 1/2″ when cutting as this will be placed on the back of your foto to hide it on the backside of your Bell Foto Ornament.

Bell Foto Ornament Assembly

Trim your chosen foto to fit inside the circle. Next glue it onto the backside of the ornament. Then take your enlarged circle and glue it over the back of your foto. Let dry. Now you may add some glitter to decorate your Bell Foto Ornament if you like. Let dry. Finally, punch a hole near the top of your Bell Foto Ornament. Thread the ribbon or yarn through the punched hole and tie into a loop to hang on your tree or tie in a knot close to the hole leaving the ends free to tie onto a gift.

Directions: 
Have your child decorate the cup. Get your yarn length and tie a bell on one end. Then punch a hole in the top of the cup with again, I use a letter opener, if you do not have one, an ice pick is cool or some other strong pointed object. Now push the yarn through the hole, tie a knot in the yarn at the top, then make a loop and tie. If you want to tie several bells together, omit the loop until you have tied them, then make a loop for hanging.
