Catholic ABC’s Week: 23
Letter of the week: R
Saint of the Week: St. Rose of Lima
Craft: Easy Rosary
This one decade rosary craft is super easy for kids of all ages! This would be a great Catholic craft for CCD class, or any occasion really. This week we made it because we’re learning about rosaries with the letter “R”.
Materials Needed to Make This Rosary Craft:
- Pipe Cleaners
- Pony Beads
I got all of my supplies at the Dollar Tree, so this craft costs only $2 and makes about a million one decade rosaries.
Start by having your kids string 10 beads of their choice onto a pipe cleaner. (If you’re trying to conserve materials for a large number, half a pipe cleaner will work). This is super easy for everyone, especially small children, because pipe cleaners are stiff so the stringing is easy.
Grab Bag Ideas for the Letter R: (be sure to check out the Classroom Script
for directions on using the grab bag.) Rosary, Rabbit, Race car, Raisins, Rock, Rag, Rainbow, Rat, Rattle, Receipt, Rectangle, something Red, Rhino, Reindeer, Ring, Rocket, Ruler, Rooster, Rope, Rose.
