The feast day of Christ the King always falls on the last Sunday of ordinary time, before Advent begins. On this day we celebrate Jesus as Creator, Savor, Head of the Church, and Ruler over all the Nations!
This truly makes Jesus King of the Kings!
Although His throne does not sit upon the Earth, He will remain King over the world for all time.
Praise be to Christ the King!
I created this simple art project for my kids to make for this wonderful feast day, and I thought I'd share it with all of you:
You will need:
- Jesus is King printable
- green and white crayons
- Pencil or a black crayon
- 6 to 7 inch lid to trace a circle
- blue paper
- black paper
- glue stick
- glitter/glitter glue, sequins, and/or gems (all are optional)
Print out this free printable
Trace or draw a 6 to 7 inch circle on the blue paper using a pencil or black crayon.
Use the green crayon to add some green to the circle to make it look like the earth.
Don't be too picky about this since most of it gets covered by Jesus.
Cut out the images and "Jesus is King of the whole world!" words from the printable sheet.
Glue down the earth, the Jesus image, and saying as shown above.
The children can "crown" Jesus now if you wish or say a prayer and have them all "crown" Him all at the same time.
Use the white crayon to add dots for stars on the black area around the Earth and the letters.
It will look similar to this one above.
Stop there or you can take it a step further:
Have the kids decorate the crown with glitter/glitter glue, sequins, or gems.
Jesus Christ is King!
