what the kids don’t want to talk about

Sorry to be such a downer, but our friends in the States are already getting ready for back to school! Up here in Canada, we’ve still got the month of August, but we may already be experiencing a little of the dread at the thought of the returning school routine. How can we make it a little more fun?

Does anyone else get at least a little excited about new school supplies?

We’ve released our new 16 month Illustrated Saints Calendar, just in time for the new start in September. It has illustrated Saints on Saints Days, a classic monthly prayer to memorize and artwork for the monthly devotion!

We’ve also added some Prompt Me to Pray / Saints Notepads and Prayer Prompts and these awesome Doodling Saint stamps!

Here are some awesome other Catholic products to jumpstart a happy and holy new School Year (and you can get them all for a heavily discounted price of $25 through my link below)

In 5 steps you’ll create a purpose-driven vision unique to your family, to reclaim peace and delight in your homeschool. Instead of days driven by worksheets and the deadlines of a syllabus, you’ll design a plan for days driven by your goals, oriented towards peace and joy. This is a new approach to your homeschool, possible, with any style of homeschooling, with any curriculum, with any age or number of children. With this framework and simple steps, you will draft a “vision board” for your school year. It will help you order the year, the months, the weeks, and the days with a purpose––one that you choose for your family’s needs and goals.

Are you a CCD teacher or a Catholic Mom looking for additional activities to teach your students about the love of Jesus? Look no further for Catholic faith-based math, literacy and religious games and printables.

Give the gift of presence, with this 3-pack set of Catholic lunchbox notes.
To your children, heading back to school.
To your spouse putting in another full day at work.
To yourself, handling your own day and its demands – tuck one of these in a mirror, on your desk, on your dashboard, wherever you need affirmation and hope.
They also work wonderfully for teachers to use with students or in classrooms! We all need affirmations and reminders of the truth of who we are and whose we are! Each of the three sets contains 24 unique cards: reassuring passages from Sacred Scripture, and meaningful quotes from the saints and other holy and profound Catholic writers.



If you are looking to keep your Preschool/Kindergarten-aged kiddos engaged in a meaningful (and quiet!) way during Mass, look no further than our Mass Morning Menu!
