The idea behind Catholic Icing is that it’s just the “fun extras” of our Catholic faith. Catholic Icing is devoted to creating and sharing free resources such as crafts, music, games, educational resources, and printable downloads. The internet has become the go-to place for people looking for information, and Catholic mothers and educators are online every day looking for fun ideas that can reach children at their own level. One mom wrote to me “This is a great site for moms with no clue. Now I am a hero to my children.” My goal is to instill a love for God and the Catholic church in children, and I plan to reach them with my site through their mothers and teachers. I want Catholic Icing to be the easy, go-to resource place for Catechists everywhere! Once you have a solid foundation for your faith, why not add some icing? 😉
Sometimes I feature cool Catholic crafts and such that I find on other blogs, but mostly I post original craft ideas that my children and I have completed together. In order to help moms and teachers making plans, I try to run seasonal ideas at least a week before the actual feast day (or what-have-you) happens.
