The Primary 1 Lesson 36 handout packet includes:

  • Crown as mentioned in Enrichment Activity #1- Cut out and decorate the crown then attach additional paper to fit around their heads. Try decorating it with these fun peel and stick wiggle eyes or if you use thick paper, glue these fun jewels on.
  • Lantern coloring sheet to go with Enrichment Activity #3- Grab some orange or yellow tissue paper to make the flame more 3-D or have some fun with glitter glue (all the fun of glitter without the mess). These glitter glue sticks are washable too which is always a good thing. Cute them out and hold it like a real lantern. Have each child hold hers while she says how she can be a good example. Thanks to Melonheadz for the lantern graphic.
