Feast Day Fun for Equipping Catholic Families

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!

St Thomas

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!

St Maria

For the Feast Day of St Maria Goretti, we made our own Handprint Paper Lilies and marvelled at the Flames of Forgiveness Cupcakes, both created by Jessica at Shower of Roses!

St Benedict

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!

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!
