Welcome to Feast Day Fun: St Benedict!
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). The St Benedict Medal is a powerful Holy Medal! Find out what all of the inscriptions mean as you check out the Giant St Benedict Foil Medal we made a couple years ago. Here’s our St Benedict Wooden Painted Saint. Check out our Wooden Painted Saint Tutorial to start your own set! We’ve got lots of ways to use them as well… in board games, classic playsets, Lego, Lincoln Logs, Saints Day decorations, chore counting and piano practicing.
We even made 2 Churches for our Wooden Painted Saints! Check out our Converted-Barn-Church and our Crackerbox Cathedral with Cathedral Clipart!
St Benedict led the monks to memorize the psalms. Choose a few key lines of different psalms and work to memorize them by reading and reciting them each day. Continue to practice previously memorized passages to build a collection of memorized prayers from the psalms. (Psalm 18:29, Psalm 43:3, Psalm 68:20…find your own!)
Lacy at Catholic Icing has a brilliant system for memorizing key Scripture…and she even has Printables of Scripture Memory Cards to jumpstart your repertoire (and they are super-easy to print at home!)
Do you have your own family activities, traditions, crafts or celebrations to share for this special Feast Day? Don’t forget to add it at the Celebrate the Saints Link-Up…or pick up an idea or two for your family to enjoy!
