Pumpkin Prayer

Halloween can present may problems and issues for many Christians.  Every year, there is the debate on whether to celebrate it or not.  For me, I like to teach my religion class to find the good points to it.  Halloween only needs to be as scary and “demonic” as people want it to be. 

Liz Curtis Higgs has a great book called The Pumpkin Patch Parable.  You can read about it by clicking the book cover below.

I used the basis of this book to create the craft that we did in religion class tonight.  The kids all colored in their pumpkin patches and the pattern pieces.  Then, they cut out all the pattern pieces.  As we read the poem together, the kids assembled their pumpkin patches.

Here’s a thumbnail view of what’s included in this craft project…..

My class had so much fun with this!!  This was a fairly simple craft for us to do with restricted time.  They love the coloring (we used markers).  And, they enjoy anything they get to cut and glue!!  They were all showing their parents as they got picked up, so I know it was a success for my little ones.

If you’d like to download this freebie, just….

So, Shine with the light of Jesus and enjoy the project….and Halloween!!  I always appreciate any comments or suggestions that you leave. It helps me to know that what I created is used or what I do is like or not liked. Also, please click the button below to vote for my blog….thanks!!

Sequence & Pray – Hail Mary

I haven’t made anything new for my religion class in quite awhile.  I’ve been using what I have or searching out new things.  However, we’re learning the Hail Mary right now and I wanted something versatile for them.  That prompted me to create this “sequence and pray”. 

There are 7 cards with the words to the Hail Mary on them.  If 2 copies of the cards are printed, one could use them to play concentration.  I also created a board to go with where the cards should be placed in sequence order. (Print the board on LEGAL size paper!!)  There’s so many uses for the cards because they could just be used to recite the prayer as well.

Here’s a thumbnail view of what’s included in this “sequence and pray”…..

VBS: NYC – Big Apple Adventure

It’s Vacation Bible School time for many!!  Last year, I was asked to create some materials for one of the members of my Christian group.  Her church is using “Big Apple Adventure” by LifeWay.

First off, I created a blank file folder game.  It’s made using the NYC theme, but there’s no designated skill so that each teacher can use it to teach what they need.  I also made a set of concetration/memory cards using Romans 10:17, which is the focus of this VBS.

There’s also a maze with the “Big Apple Adventure” theme, as well as a kriss kross puzzle and cryptogram with that theme based on Romans 10:17.

I also made some decoration materials and some rewards materials.  There’s a set of NYC banners.  For the kids is some small bookmarks and doorknob hangers.  Also, there’s name tags and desk place tags.

It seems to me that there’s more, but I just can’t remember right now.  That’s ok, it’ll be a surprise when you go to download all these materials!!  I hope that you find something that you can use for your VBS, homeschool, religion class, or whatever you might need them for.

Here’s a collage of just some of the items available for this VBS….

If you’re interested in these printables, please just…..

If you use these materials for your VBS, religious education, or at home, please leave a comment and let me know how you and the kids like it.  I’d also appreciate it if you’d click one or both of the buttons below (as well as in the side bar under “rate my blog”.

Stations of the Cross

For many of us, we often focus on the Stations of the Cross during Lent.  I think it’s fairly hard to find materials that can be used for adults to meditate these, much less children.  I decided I was going to remedy that!!  I’ve created several printables to help with learning, as well as meditation for The Way of the Cross.  There’s a couple games and there’s some materials to take to church as you visit each station.

First is some 3-piece egg shape puzzles for each Station of the Cross.  I think these would be perfect in Resurrection Eggs or just as a learning tool.  There are 2 sets….one has the number of the Station and the other doesn’t.  Next is a set of Way of the Cross cards.  These can be used as memory match or for a number of other things.  These also come in 2 sets….one with the number of the Station and one without.  Both of these items also have a storage box for the puzzle pieces or the cards.

For learning materials or meditation, I made a set of cards….or they can be made into a book.  This is a spiritual devotion for Stations of the Cross.  They can be printed front and back for ease of use.  If they’re cut apart, they’re slightly smaller than half-page.  Finally, I’ve made an accordion book for the Way of the Cross.  This requires a little bit of  “work” to assemble, but I love how it turned out.  Once the pages are printed out, the pages are glued or taped together to overlap.  The pages are then folded in half along the dotted line and folded into the accordion book.  For each Station, there is a devotional.  I’m also working on another accordion book that will just have the Stations, without the devotionals.  This is more for children to learn what the stations are and give them a basis for it all.

All of these have different Stations images.  I was able to find many great images online and used a variety when creating these.  I think they’re all beautiful and I want to create until I’ve made something with all the beautiful images that I found because what Jesus gave for us deserves the best!!

Here’s a collage of just a single page from each item….

P.S.  Don’t forget to check back to this post for at least ONE more addition to these Stations of the Cross printable materials!!

UPDATE:  I found some beautiful pieces of art on the internet and knew that I wanted to use them for a Stations of the Cross activity.  It’s so hard to know what to do with them and have them be highlighted, but still “teach the lesson”.  Anyway, I chose to make an accordion book/cards with them.  There are 2 sets…..1 with words for each Station and 1 without the words (so it’s just the image).  These can be folded and used as an accordion book, or they can be cut apart.  Once apart, they could be used for memory (if 2 copies are printed) or they could be sequenced, or simply held up and used for review.  They could even added to a blank game board for skills/review.  Really, there’s so many options.  If you’re interested in these, just click the button above and they’re in a folder!!  There still might be more to come, depending on my time available to create, so keep a watch!!

My Lent Calendar

After doing my post about Lent, I spent much of the day wondering and planning out making one for myself.  I wanted one that my religion class kids could do at home and return to me after Easter.  I also wanted one that would be of interest to my daughter.  That’s a huge age gap to cover to keep everyone happy!!  However, I think that I did it.

I made a “My Lent Calendar” that can serve many purposes.  It can be colored or marked off each day.  It can have stickers placed on it for each day as a reward or just to mark the day off.  Other special days that occur in the family can be included on the calendar if one chooses.  It’s very basic, but it has lots of possibilities!!

If you’re interested in “My Lent Calendar”, just click the thumbnail…..

Also, I’m working on a Lent worksheet that could be used along with or separately from the calendar.  Please come back to this post to see when it’s uploaded.  I’m working on it now, but it probably won’t be ready until sometime tomorrow.

If you use “My Lent Calendar” or any of the other printables that offer here, I’d appreciate if you’d leave a comment or vote for my blog.  You can vote by clicking one or all of the buttons below, as well as going to the “Rate My Blog” area in the right hand column.  Your comments and voting let me know that what I create is needed and used!!




Update 1: I just created “Almsgiving for Lent”.  It’s a chart to insert coins or use as a countdown to Easter chart.  It also includes an envelope to put the coins in on Easter Sunday to donate.  I’d also like to note that the chart itself should be printed on legal size (8.5″ x 14″) paper.  If you’re interested in this activity, just click here the thumbnail above and it’ll take you right to the folder to download!!

Update 2: I’ve created a “Merciful Cross” for sacrifices and works of mercy done during Lent.  I got this idea from Pondered in My Heart, but I tweaked it a bit to suit my needs.  This is what I’m sending home with my kids tonight after mass.  After discussions with them, they don’t always do the right things.  Although they know it, they don’t change their ways no matter how I talk to them, so this might be the incentive that they need.  I used 2 cross coloring pages that I found….simple and decorated, so there’s a choice in which to use.  The cross is decorated with flowers and butterflies for sacrifices and works of mercy during Lent.  One could also decorate the cross for each day of Lent and use it like a calendar.   If you’re interested in this project for your kids, just click here the thumbnail above to download it!!

Angels and Guardian Angels

Last week, my CCD lesson was angels and guardian angels.  I was disappointed because of all the many (and I mean MANY) workbooks and such that I have, there’s not much on angels.  My online search proved to find much of the same.  I thought for those of you perhaps doing a lesson on angels or needing materials might find some of what I found useful.

First, my class is starting to learn the “Guardian Angel Prayer”.  I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted, so I created a writing practice worksheet for them to do as homework.  I found a couple of amazing coloring pages here and here.  They both came from Catholic Parenting.  I placed these coloring pages on the side for the kids to color and the prayer along the other side for them to copy.  I find that even as little as they are, they memorize it quite well with printing practice!!  You can find my “Guardian Angel Prayer” copywork/printing practice by clicking the button….

In my search, I found some other good materials that I’d like to share with you.  At this site, you’ll find some really good angel printables including an angel shape book.  There’s a Jesus Loves Me and You angel coloring and writing practice sheets.  I found these fantastic coloring pages for the archangels at Waltzing Matilda.  In case you’re in need of coloring pages, take a look around her blog because she has lots of good ones!!  To go along with those archangels, there is one here with all 3 of them for their feast day.

Back at Waltzing Matilda, she has a great angel mobile craft.  For the littles, you’ll find coloring pages, crafts, and lessons.  If you browse DLTK, you’ll find “angels of the Bible”, along with other angel crafts and activities.  One can even get printable angel wings for paper dolls.

There are even angel cards and award certificatesCatholicMom.com has an Angel of God bookmark.  I don’t visit the site that often any more because well, I just don’t enjoy the format of it and I find it hard to navigate.  However, if you take the time, you’ll find more angel items and lots of great things on items that you might be working on!!  I found this Bible study worksheet on angels.

Now there’s a lot more angel printables out there.  Many of them are Christmas related, which really is a whole other topic.  There are just a few of my favorite things that I found, or things that I knew I could use now or in the future.  Hopefully you’ll find something to suit your needs among these links and ideas.

If you enjoy my blog, use my printables, or just stopped by, I’d appreciate it if you’d leave a comment.  If you’d rather, you can just vote for my blog by clicking one or all of the buttons in the right column under “Rate My Blog”.  I really appreciate anyone that does that because that’s what I use to know if my blog, posts, printables, and so on are being viewed and used!!

Matching Desk Sets

As I’m sure you know from previous posts, I’ve made several calendar sets to use in the classroom or homeschool.  These are mainly for the big poster calendars or pocket (chart) calendars.  I have added one new one to the collection and I’m quite proud of it.  It’s the back to school calendar set.  This one is a bit different than the others, but oh so pretty!!

Now to add to the calendar sets, I’ve started making desk sets.  These desk sets have incentive cards and sheets, as well as desk name plates.  The “back to school” set also has cubbie tags.  I may eventually make those for all the sets!!  For now, you can find all the desk sets here.

I should also note that I’m working on Christian/religious sets too.  To start with, there’s a Noah’s Ark calendar set and desk set.  The calendar set has the expanded numbers to 100 for the “100 days calendar”.  I plan on doing more, I just have to find the right graphics and get the sets made when I locate just what I need!!

So what else would you include in a desk set??  I thought of perhaps some letter and/or number writing charts.  Someone else suggested some signs for centers for each theme.  I’d love to know what my readers think, so leave a comment and let me know!!
