I’ve been working hard on something that I’m so excited to release to you today: A whole alphabet of Saints, ready for you and your kids to craft! The best part is, they’re printable, and ready-to-go in either black and white or in color. Your choice. 🙂 Also, they totally match the Saint of the week for Catholic ABC’s.
This project was a joint effort! I commissioned my sister-in-law at to draw these, and I painted them with watercolors.
These are so cute and have so much personality! Each Saint is depicted with their letter, as well as imagery that tells part of the story of who they are. After completing this series, your children should be able to identify Saints in real life masterpieces! You’ll love all the little details that went into these! Here are some close-ups:
Little girl Mary helps her mama, St. Anne, hold up the “A.”
St. Catherine is holding lilies, and if you look closely, you can see a touch of stigmata.
Saint Faustina is holding her Divine Mercy image. So cute!
Saint John Bosco has 2 little helpers holding up his “J.”
Saint Kateri is holding lilies.
Saint Lucy is wearing her wreath with candles, and carrying lucia buns.
Saint Michael is the only one who’s tricky to cut out,
but he’s so awesome that it’s totally worth it!
St. Nicholas has his Bishop hat, crosier, and a bag of coins.
St. Patrick makes his appearance with a shamrock, of course.
St. Rose is holding a bottle of pepper, which she has used to destroy her complexion.
St. Therese holds her traditional roses.
St. Zita holds out her cloak, which by a miracle reveals flowers rather than bread.
The download includes: 26 printable Saint crafts in black and white, and then all 26 again in full color. You just print them, color them, cut them out, and assemble into tubes. There are several options for assembling them once you have them colored and cut out:
- Option 1: print them on regular copy paper, and glue them around toliet paper tubes using a glue stick.
- Option 2: print them onto card stock. When you cut them out, just turn them into a tube and attach with tape or staples.
- Option 3: print them onto card stock, and laminate them. Turn them into tubes and attach with tape or staples. Let me tell you- this really makes them strong and long-lasting! My kids have been playing with my beta Saint Anne I did this way for weeks!
- Option 4: print them on regular copy paper, and decoupage them around a wooden dowel about the size of a toilet paper tube. Then you’ll end up with your own set of wooden Saints, no artistic skills needed. 😉
I made this entire set in less than an hour, printing, cutting, and stapling included. If kids are making them, I recommend just doing 1 at a time, and letting the kids do the coloring themselves. These are very fast and fun to craft. They are all very easy to cut out, with the 1 exception of St. Michael.
Watch your children fall in love with the Saints as they make and play with these fun characters. Each and every one of these alphabet Saints puts a smile on my face. They are ready to come marching in… just as soon as you download them. 🙂
You can get this whole download with 26 Saints (in black and white AND in color) for just $8! Remember, you can use these as crafts one per week, so they’ll last you the entire year. 🙂
When you purchase this download, you will receive an email within minutes containing the file. It is in pdf format, so you will need Adobe Reader to open it. Your link will expire after it has been clicked 5 times, so you need to save this file onto your own computer.
I have our Alphabet Saints displayed on the preschool shelf in our homeschool room. They are sitting on spice shelves that I got at Wal-Mart (similar here.)
