St Margaret Clitherow was also known as the pearl of York. Jesus talks about pearls in His parables and they are a great way to remember that the most valuable things in this world, are really those of the next: the Kingdom of Heaven. Make your own pearl and clam.
What you’ll need:
- A paper plate
- Pink paper
- White paper (or a small ball like a table tennis ball or Styrofoam ball)
What to do:
Trace around your paper plate onto some pink paper.
Mark a smaller circle out inside this line and cut out.
Fold plate and paper in half.
Glue pink paper into plate so that there is a border.
Glue Styrofoam ball to the bottom. Once dry, glue to top of the plate too.
