We've launched a new series over at Equipping Catholic Families! It's called Feast Day Fun! It includes excerpts from our book A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families, archive crafts from Equipping Catholic Families and our Kelly Saint illustrations from our Saint Scripts Craft Kits (Series ONE and TWO).
As I research activities and family traditions online...I like to include the gems that I find on other Catholic Blogs, especially when I'm graciously granted permission to post their photos!
For the Feast Day of St Thomas on July 3, we honored the patron of architects by offering crafts to build a City of God. There are lots of ways to make cute houses out of milk cartons and recycled boxes...and we like to fill them with our Wooden Painted Saints!
For the Feast Day of St Benedict on July 11, we revisited our Giant Foil St Benedict Medal and made a plan to memorize important verses in the Psalms with this really neat Scripture-memorizing system!
Subscribe to Equipping Catholic Families to enjoy this new series of posts! Check out the Feast Day of St Kateri and watch for other awesome Saints coming up in July and August! We plan to showcase a key Saint's Feast Day at least once a week and we've got plenty of activities and Kelly Saints to draw from!
