This was my first class since Easter so we made the changes to our prayer table.
Our purple table cloth was replaced by white.
We replaced our purple Lenten candle with a white one and added this pretty
Paschal Candle printable from Celebrations in the Catholic Home.
They offer it free on their blog.
We replaced the thorns with silk flowers and brought back our Alleluia.
It also happened to be Divine Mercy Sunday so we watched the
EWTN DVD: The Divine Mercy Chaplet for Kids.
It has a long and short version in both English and Spanish.
Perfect for teaching children the history of this devotion and the special love Jesus
gave to St. Faustina to share with us of his Divine Mercy.
We made our Divine Mercy image found at Catholic Icing. Lacy offers a free printable of Jesus with the radiant rays to color and attach onto a toilet paper tube.
I didn't get a picture of the ones we made in class so I'm borrowing one of Lacy's.
Thank you Lacy!
Through Lacy's blog, I learned of the Divine Mercy Chaplet craft that she offers for free at
Making Music Praying Twice. On cardstock, I downloaded her pattern with prayers (scroll down on her page) and then created my own "Eternal Father" prayer to be recited on the Our Father beads.
We colored the prayers to make them pop.
I also made some Divine Mercy cupcakes.
I had seen this idea online to make the inside blue and red.
I've done it before for the 4th of July cupcakes and they worked great too for Divine Mercy Sunday.
That Resource Site has a great selection of printable resources to celebrate this day.
I downloaded the St. Faustina trading card for each of my students.
May God's Divine Mercy be upon you,
