- white paper
- black construction paper
- tissue paper (one-inch squares)
- pattern (shown small; also available in SVG format from the Open Clip Art Library, see SVG documents for more info)
For the preschool, pre-cut the construction paper. The piece you hand the children should be a rectangular "frame" with an open area in the middle in the shape of the praying hands silhouette.
Have the children glue tissue paper onto one side of the white paper. (It doesn't need to go clear to the edge, because the black construction paper frame will cover the edges.)
Have the elementary children trace the praying-hands silhouette onto the black construction paper and cut it out, removing the praying hands and leaving the outside (frame) in one piece. (They may need help getting started in the middle.)
The black construction paper frame then glues overtop of the tissue paper, framing it, and the white paper serves as the backing.
