This illustrated folded paper church template includes the main responses of the people at Mass. Printed, folded and hole-punched, a child can thread the lace through the responses, keeping them focused (and their little hands busy) at Mass.

I’ve been planning to make a Play Mass kit for a couple years now and just started collecting the pieces a few months ago.
Before he even knew I was making the Play Mass Kit, Adam just recently started playing Mass in the living room.
So, 5 year old Adam saw the pieces I’ve received in the mail to make our first ever Play Mass kit. He asks me everyday if it’s finished. When I told him that I also needed to make some priest vestments…he dragged my sewing machine up for me, from the basement. It took 2 hands…and a little dragging, but the sewing machine still works. =)
Check out Painted Saint Church TO GO!
Just to prove that our craft kit is versatile…and after converting a Michaels wooden barn and a Goldfish Cracker Box to a Church, I picked up a couple other boxes from Michaels to make a few different styles of Church play sets for our Painted Saints.
Review: A Missal for Little Ones
Available at Magnificat/Ignatius Press
This is a beautiful little Missal for kids. The pictures are cute and colorful, making the Missal a helpful book for little ones who cannot yet read. Although the Missal does not offer more than short snippets of the official responses, it offers simple explanations of each part of the Mass, likely more engaging and helpful to guide young readers through the Mystery of the Mass.
