Feast Day Crafts and Activities
Excerpts from A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families , various posts at Equipping Catholic Families and our Saint Scripts Craft Kits (Series ONE and TWO).
St Thérèse inspires us all with her child-like Faith and confident “little way” …offering sacrifices out of love for Jesus and trusting completely in Him!
Saint Thérèse carried a string of Good Deed Beads! The 10 prayer or sacrifice beads slide and stay in place along the string, ready to help keep track of good deeds, prayers and sacrifices. When St Thérèse counted 10…she’d start sliding the beads in the other direction!
Here is my tutorial for a Simple Good Deed Bead Bracelet!
I have also made Suede Cord Good Deed Bead Bracelets…they have a little more sophisticated look and are a tiny bit tougher to make, but adults are more apt to wear them!
You will find the Tutorial here at Equipping Catholic Families.
This is Bridget’s FIRST Cross Stitch project…with a little help from her mom. Check out the full post here.
Indulge your kids’ devotion to St Thérèse! It would seem that we’ve been collecting things reminding us of this favorite saint of ours!
We have the St Thérèse Prayer Pillowcase, a Faith Filled Friends doll, St Thérèse Tiny Saints , a St Thérèse quote mug from Catholic to the Max (sent with Emily to her dorm!) and a number of cute little statues!
We also just received our new
St Thérèse from My Little Felt Friends! Isn’t she awesome?
St Thérèse said it with flowers!
Nicknamed “The Little Flower”, St Thérèse is often associated with flowers. She insisted that she would continue doing good works from Heaven and would send a shower of roses. To this day, many people report the scent or unexpected receipt of roses corresponding with a special answer to prayer, when they pray for St Thérèse’s intercession.
There are many great flower crafts online! Flowers can be made with paper or clay…or a huge range of other materials and methods. Just google or pinterest search “flower crafts” for endless inspiration!
