Ascension Thursday: Kid Craft

As a fun way to celebrate Ascension Thursday with the kids we put together this cute "Ascension up"craft! I got the idea courtesy of Lacy over at Catholic Icing (thanks Lacy!). These were simple to make, the kids loved doing them and they came out great. An all-around success! Here's how ours came out:

Adam's cup

(Note the perfectly rectangular clouds! :p He couldn't be bothered refining the aesthetics of his cloud formations when there were much more exciting things ahead like-- GLUING!!)

Luke's cup

(Luke was much more into making perfectly puffy cumulus clouds! See, there's a science lesson built right in! Bonus for homeschoolers!)

These are really pretty self-explanatory to make just by looking at them. We used glue sticks to affix the clouds and pipe cleaners to attach Jesus to the cup--super simple!

Happy Ascension Thursday!

Are you doing any special activity today? I'd love to hear about it!

"As they were looking on, He was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight. While they were looking intently at the sky as he was going, suddenly two men dressed in white garments stood beside them. They said, “Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will return in the same way as you have seen him going into heaven.”
(Acts 1:9-11)


  1. How cute! What a great way for kids to learn about Ascension Thursday! :)

  2. I teach kindergarten Sunday school at my church. While searching for a craft I came upon this wonderful idea. Thank you so much for sharing with us.
