Alphabet of Saints Crafts for Catholic Kids

With the combination of our Catholic ABC’s preschool we’re working on and with All Saints’ Day just around the corner, I wanted to run some awesome saint crafts! And I wanted to start with a “String from Heaven” craft made by my friend Jackie. 

Here’s what Jackie said-

So we are doing Elizabeth Foss’ Alphabet Path at home with our daughter. Since Ican’t paint we purchased the gingerbread cutouts of cardboard people atMichael’s. Each week I trace the outfits from construction paper for herto cut and paste them together to correspond with the pictures from An Alphabet of Catholic Saintsfor each letter. I do the faces typically and some ofthem I’ve cut too (you can probably guess which). We do this inaddition to cutting out the Letters (upper and lowercase) for the weekand gluing things that start w/ the letter or the actual letter frommagazines to that Letter’s page.

St. Anne

St. Bernadette
St. Cecilia
St. Dominic
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
St. Francis of Assisi
St. George
And here are some more Saint Crafts A-Z!

I just love these Adorable Alphabet Saints
from Pinewood Castle! And you can find some good
directions on making these kind of dolls at Crafty in Coffeeland.

If you want to try your hand at painting, check out these
Painted Alphabet Peg Dolls from robynallen2 on Flickr.

Here are some other ways to make yourself a procession
of saints- whether they’re in alphabetical order or not! :-)

I have always been in love with Alice’s Spoon Saints!
You have got to click over to Cottage Blessings to
see her procession across the mantle! :-)

Are you ready for this? These Saint Dolls are so adorable,
and the patterns are available to print for free at 
Ana Braga-Henebry’s Journal. I love these so much!

Soon your saints will all come marching in! I hope your kids enjoy making some saint crafts soon – I know mine will!

    These are so cute! :)

    An Alphabet of Catholic Saint crafts would be great to do with a classroom of students. Put a name of a saint on a little pieces of paper and put them into a large container. Have each student reach into the container and pick a slip of paper to find out which saint they will make to hang in the classroom.

    I love the Alphabet Path, as do my kids!! Doing a garland of letters & Saints is a great idea, especially for those with limited space (like us). Thanks for all the wonderful ideas (here & overall on the site!).
