It’s Holy Thursday and a Snow Day up here in Canada, so we have taken the opportunity to color the B&W templates of our new Divine Mercy Craft Kit…just in time for the Novena that starts tomorrow on Good Friday!
The Divine Mercy Craft Kit includes 18 different templates to help keep track of the prayers and the Novena days of this special Devotion!
Even our at-home printer can handle the black and white templates and the white cover stock paper I had on hand can totally endure watercolor painting! I know! I’ve done it before! The ink does not run!
We used pencil crayons and markers to achieve the solid blocks of color.
I actually used a combination of Artists Loft watercolor pencils and my travel watercolor set including refillable watercolor paint brushes. I was really impressed with how easy they are to work with and how fun they are to use! The trick is to color in the drawing as you would with regular pencil crayons…and then use a refillable paint brush (you could totally use regular watercolor paint brushes or even dollar store paint brushes)…to blend the color strokes for a nice watercolor look.
See how the color strokes blend into a watercolor effect?
You’re going to love the Divine Mercy Prayer Petal Flower…
The neat thing about the Prayer Petal Flowers template is that it’s great for little colorers! They can color outside the lines all they want as the pieces will be cut out and assembled…and will look fantastic!
The Divine Mercy Craft Kit includes a number of templates…for different age groups and different levels and techniques of coloring! We’re planning on laminating a couple of these…and either hole-punching them for lace-up activities…or letting Adam mark each laminated prayer counter with dry erase or washable markers. In any case, we’ll be able to use these templates over and over, especially for the NINE days of the Novena starting tomorrow!
