Rosary for the Littles

In the evenings, as we've been praying the novena for the unborn, the five-year-old and a two-year-old participate in their own way. What we've been using to keep them focused and looking at pretty pictures that turn their minds and hearts to God is this:

The Rosary pictures PDF were provided generously by The Bookworm (on the First Heralds blog long ago). Just click on the link then scroll down a spell to see the PDF link to download. Actually, while you're there, check out the fabulous post for creating a rosary box. It's wonderful.

Our Rosary ring was easy-peasy to make:
  1. Download the rosary pictures and laminate them.
  2. Hole punch the top left corner.
  3. Slip the cards onto the ring. (A plain silver key ring works or something like this.)
  4. Pray them!
If you laminate them, they should last for quite a long time. I started using these cards when my oldest child was five, and now she's eleven years old. Now, her little siblings use the rosary ring.

Blessings galore,
Vee
