Magic Color Scratch Angels
A Wonderful Project for a Church Advent Center!
As the Director of Religious Education at our church, I wanted some fun hands-on activities for children from 1st through 7th grade. We only had an hour, so I wanted things that were easy. For the 1st -4th graders, I used the Angels at an easy center station. The look on their faces as they used the " magic pen"
was great! They can take them home and hang them on their Christmas trees. I had bags for them to take their projects in.

These angels worked out perfectly for my project. They are a little large when you are thinking about using them. But they were easy to decorate and all turned out well. Got a lot of compliments on my project.

They are good. The children will enjoy making them.

Kids loved these!
Will definitely order these again next year, but in a larger quantity. The kids loved the size and colors and we ran out of this optional activity very quickly. I liked the fact that the white residue didn't seem to make as much of a mess as the black scratch-offs.

Fun, Easy Craft
This was a fun, easy, craft for my third-grade religious ed class. They were enchanted. A few things to note: these will only take 3rd-graders about 10 minutes to finish; the angels are not white, but a light blue; this set was better quality than the magic scratch Christmas trees I also ordered. The angels lose one rating star for supplying only twelve scratch sticks for 24 angels. This forced me to buy the Christmas tree set so that I could use 3 sticks from that set for my class of 15 kids. Note if you do this with younger kids: the magic-scratch makes a lot of waxy crumbles which get all over the kids hands. I'd be careful that 3 or 4 year-olds might get the crumbles in their mouths.

Kids Love them
It was the most popular activity for the kids. Easy to use and fun to take home.

At first the 4-6 grade boys in the group balked at creating an angel but once they started, they enjoyed it. I also used it with the 2-3 grade group. None of them had done a project like this - I think if we used a similar one next year they would be more creative. It took a bit for them to get the hang of it and thus I decided against using it for the younger children and used an alternate project.

Easy and Fun Project
I loved this craft. The only problem is that there are more angels than there are sticks. We used some regular popsicle sticks and they work ok, but the kids can't be a detailed with them. Overall though, GREAT craft! Super easy and no set up or prep needed.
