Happy Birthday Mother Mary!
There are a lot of ways to celebrate Mother Mary’s birth; the most obvious is probably a birthday cake! In A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families we recommend an All-White Dinner reminding us that Mary was born without sin! I collected a bunch of pins on Pinterest, searching Birth of Mary, birthday cakes and white food… At Equipping Catholic Families, we have created a number of dolls and figures for Mother Mary. Check out: Egg Carton Mary and Mary TY Doll and our Wooden Painted Saint: Mother Mary! Check out our Wooden Painted Saint Tutorial An Alphabet of Mary is a sweet book with little poems, explanations and illustrations of the titles and qualities of Mother Mary. Check out current Specials at Catholic Artworks!
We added a NEW Cathletics Craft Kit this year! Mysteries of the Rosary with Kelly Saints includes the Revolving Rosary (a spinning Mystery and prayer counter to help keep track of the prayers of the Rosary as they are said) along with lace-up Mystery booklets and cake toppers for a Living Rosary. All templates are illustrated with Kelly Saints Mysteries of the Rosary!
The Spiritual Bouquet of Prayer Petal Flowers is an excellent craft to help teach the Rosary. One colorful paper flower is made as the prayers of one decade are recited (or read from the flower pieces! Templates for a giant wall garland are also included, along with a flower template for the prayers of the Divine Mercy.
