Fruit of the Vine Mobiles Level 2

Here is the description from the wall label:

Students in the First Communion class learn about the sacrament of Eucharist and the consecration of the bread and the wine. During the Last Supper, Christ refers to the wine, symbolic of his blood, as the fruit of the vine. In this instance it is both the grapes that grow on a literal vine and it is Christ as the fruit with God as the vine. The mobiles themselves were created with paper the students hand-painted using a sponging technique. From this paper bunches of grapes were cut and assembled. Fishing line, chenille stems, and bamboo skewers were also used to finish off the mobiles design.

Materials used:
  • Tempera Paints (yellow, green, blue, purple)
  • Sponges
  • Brushes
  • Oak tag paper
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Fishing line
  • Foam squares
  • Grape and Leaf Tracers
  • Scissors
  • Pencils
  • Black Sharpies
