Equipping Catholic Families for the Month of May!

Welcome to our monthly summary of crafts and family traditions related to the Monthly Devotion, Key Feast Days and the appropriate Season of the Liturgical Calendar.


The Monthly Devotion for May is the Blessed Virgin Mary


Month of May

Here’s a quick picture summary of some of our favorite Mary and Rosary crafts!

kid rosary

Our oversized wood bead Rosary is always a hit at the conferences we attend. This is a pretty simple craft made with wooden beads, a wooden cross and a wooden heart, acrylic paint and mod podge…and it’s one of the favorites in our book A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families!

Our Mini Rosary Abacus was just added recently…and it’s a nice way to help busy people keep track of their daily Rosary prayers, hands-free!

Mysteries Craft Kit

The Kelly SaintsTM Mysteries of the Rosary Craft Kit was released last year and it’s a comprehensive kit with fully illustrated templates for Revolving Rosaries, Lace-Up Booklets and Cake Toppers for each of the four sets of Mysteries of the Rosary. Lots of templates…in color and black and white….and lots of ways to use them! New ways to get kids excited about saying the Rosary!

Our Easy as Abacus Rosary Craft Kit was new last fall! It’s an easy craft with fun Kelly SaintsTM clipart for all 20 Mysteries of the Rosary. We recommend a square wood canvas and a string of pony beads to help little fingers keep track of the prayers of each decade!

A number of the Journal Stamps in our Prayer Impressions Journal Stamp Shoppe feature Mother Mary!

These quality rubber stamps are perfect for Scrapbooking, Calendars, Daytimers, Planners and custom stationary!

We’ve also added special Journal Stamps to inspire you and keep you on track with a daily checklist of healthy and holy habits. We’ve made a bunch of custom stamps for people out there…and I’ve started using some of the new designs myself!
