He has colored posters, coloring sheets, badges (square and circle) as well as prayer cards. Here’s how we’re using it and loving it.
Going to Stations of the Cross on a Friday night at 7pm just isn’t feasible during this chapter of life. Well, I mean we could go, but then I’d want to poke out my eyeballs. We’re winding down and going to bed at 7pm. So, we’ll be using these posters to fashion our own homemade stations. Lisa, from the Practicing Catholic, had a great idea for a Lenten mantel. Perhaps these could adorn your own.
Dole out the stations 2-3 a child and get them to coloring on a Friday night. I’m seriously considering holding off on this activity until Good Friday, from 12-3pm. We’re always looking for constructive, reflective, quiet activities during that time and this may just do the trick.
Badges & Prayer Cards
I’m not sure I’d print out the sticker portion of the book, but the prayer cards are a definite. I printed these gems out, laminated them, punched a hole and then tied them together with twine for a quiet, yet awesome, Mass activity for our very busy three-year-old. He loves pictures but giving him my iPhone is not an option during Mass. I’m fairly certain the people around us don’t need to hear “Call Me Maybe” via YouTube. Yes, the stations of the cross are a way better option.
All in all, a pretty good way to spend $14.90.
