King of Kings Crowns for VBS art in a Colonia en Cabo San Lucas
Supplies: watercolors, crayons, brushes & cups for water.
After teaching local leadership how to do wax resist to make crowns, these trained leaders showed children in a colonia in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico how to make the crowns. The teaching theme was Jesus as King of kings (Rey de reys) and Prince of Peace (Principa de Paz). First the children learned a catchy song in Spanish (we didn't quite get to the English which really adds a nice touch when there's time to teach in bilingually). Then the teachers led the children in making the crowns while the women learned how to make earrings for cottage industry skills. The artful crowns were a big hit. Much fun enjoyed by all.
