What an exciting week we have had! Welcome, Pope Francis! My kids were so excited to see him come onto the balcony, and what a blessing that we were able to pray an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be along with the world! We were so excited, we wanted to turn our Pope puppets we’ve been making into Pope Francis puppets, and here he is!
The templates for making these Pope puppets can be found in my Saint Puppet Ebook. To turn the Pope puppets you already made into specifically Pope Francis puppets, first draw on some glasses with a marker. Then, color his cross brown rather than gold. This is because rather than coming out in the fancy jeweled cross they had prepared for Pope Francis, he chose to come out in his own, simple cross, which I think is simply fabulous.
Here’s a picture of Julian watching Pope Francis yesterday wearing his Zucchetto that we crafted! So fun!
You can also make a Saint Francis puppet to go along with, and the templates for him are also available in the Ebook. You can also check out my St. Francis crafts here, and my round up of Pope crafts here. You could also celebrate with food or crafts from Argentina.
I’m going to be out of town at a blogging conference over the weekend, so I’ll see you all when I get back on Monday! God bless Pope Francis!!!Pin It
