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.

Post continues after this brief information about the Catholic ABCs Curriculum

Catholic ABCs Curriculum for Preschool and Kindergarten

Catholic ABCs Curriculum

Catholic ABCs is a hand-on curriculum full of crafts, printables, worksheets, saints, learning, and more for preschoolers and kindergartners. There are over 2,000 pages that you can use for multiple school years! (This is also a great supplement for 1st and 2nd graders.)

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:

printable saint craft

  • 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. πŸ˜‰

how to make saint craft

printable saint craft for catholic kids

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. πŸ™‚

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.)

  1. These are awesome! I totally just impulse bought these. I’m excited to do them with my preschoolers! Perfect for where my 2 and 4 year olds are at right now, and the big kids will want to do them too!

  2. These are ahmazing! I just purchased 100 wooden peg dolls in hopes to make saints but then I forgot I’m not artistic πŸ˜‰ I will be purchasing these and laminating….just adorable! Thank you!!

  3. AAHHH! You rock. These are perfect for us this year. big kiss, , lifesaver, seriously,,,still sitting here trying to get myself together for this school year.

  4. Lacy, If I purchase the download to use at the church with preschoolers, do I need a separate permission? Just don’t want to violet copyright stuff. Thanks


  5. Thought of releasing a version that is already colored like the one you posted here? I would definitely purchase that version.

    • Christy –

      The purchasable download includes all 26 in black and white and then all 26 colored as well. So, you’ll get both in the download. Hope that helps!

  6. HI Lacy,
    I have your Catholic ABS’s Book and I just purchased these for use in my preschool classroom. They are fantastic! However, I need some biographies on the saints – something a preschooler would understand. Do you have anything like this or do you know of a website that I can use? Thanks so much and keep up the great work!

    • 0I’m working on it, but it’s not ready yet. Coming soon to a Catholic Icing near you! πŸ™‚ But not super soon, so you’re probably on your own for this year. πŸ˜‰

      • OK, thanks so much!

      • Just wondering if you have made any saint biographies yet? I bought these and am SO excited to use them, but would love to have way to teach my Kinders about the saints. Thanks!

        • I’m just looking for the little tidbits like you share on the promo for the craft. I’m not knowledgeable about the saints enough to pick out all the details that you so wonderfully put in.

  7. Hi Lacy, these would be great to use both with my children and my CCE classes. Is there a way to pay you without PayPal? Thanks.

    • Paypal is the only way I can take payment at this time, however, you don’t need a paypal account- you can pay with a credit card or with an echeck using paypal. πŸ™‚

  8. I love the abc saints. I need biographies of the saints so I can use this activity this week. Please advise. Thank you!

  9. These are adorable, and a wonderful way to teach kids about saints! I printed a set for my 7 year old daughter, and am excited to color them with her as we talk about the different saints’ lives. One thing I would like to suggest is this: would you consider changing St. Denis to a different saint? The sight of him holding his own head was a little too much for my 7 year old. Maybe St. Dominic holding a rosary would be better. Thanks!

    • Lol! I have gotten a lot of requests for alternate Saints for many of the letters. I don’t have time to add anymore Saints to the project for now. I chose these saints years ago, and they are the ones in Catholic ABC’s, and ultimately I decided the cartoon picture of St. Denis with his head was certainly no more gruesome than all the crucifixes hanging in my home, so we went with it. Certainly feel free to skip the D for now. Perhaps I’ll have time for alternates in the future. God bless! πŸ™‚

    I bought the abc saint project and it never came to my email can you please help me?

    • I have tried emailing you at this email address, and it’s bouncing. Maybe there’s something wrong with your email? Try emailing me at lacy {at} catholicicing {dot} com. Then I can reply to that message with the file.

      • I got your email, and when I replied to it, it immediately bounced back again. There is something wrong with that email address, and there’s no way for me to send something to it. And I’ve sent dozens of emails today from my address, so I know it’s not me.

  11. Lacy, I’m not sure of what happened. I finally got around to purchasing these , the PayPal payment is pending in my account but no download was emailed. What did I do wrong? Thanks! love love love these and am hoping to have St Denis for Thursday to help celebrate our little Dennis’ feast! Thanks!

    • I’ll send it to your email address. So happy to have someone excited about the St. Denis! πŸ™‚

  12. These are ADORABLE. Someone above said they did an impulse buy…that would be me! I didn’t even check what saints you included, I just know I ‘have to have’ πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing these with us!!

  13. Are these still available to down load?


  14. I’m confused by the one per week lasting all year. Are there 52 of these or 26?

    • There are 26 for the alphabet. My book, Catholic ABC’s, runs through the school year. I guess I should be more clear about that.

  15. Love, love, love this saints craft. I teach at St Thecla’s Catholic School any chance of getting a T for St. Thecla?

  16. Lisa DeComo says

    Hi Lacy,

    Is there a little write-up included about each saint?

  17. Krista Calvino says

    how do i contact you? I paid for the ABC saint download but my computer wouldnt let me download

  18. Wendy Blank says

    These are absolutely beautiful! I am waiting to purchase this when the bios of the saints are finished. Keep of the great work!

    • Hi Wendy –
      I know that Lacy said that was something she was working on back in 2014, but I don’t believe it’s something that she continued to work on. If she did have them available at some point, however, they would definitely be an add on purchase, and not something that was included in the current purchase.

      You’re definitely welcome to keep waiting. I just wanted to let you know that it might be a very, very long wait (and actually may never be something that is available).

    Hi Lacy,
    I acquired your ABC Saints quite a while ago, downloaded them, black lined, and the color ones, but I didn’t;t have a color printer at the time so my colored ones are black and white, I see now the set is $12.00, is there a way to check to see if I had purchased these, so I may download the colored saints now? Thank you.

  20. I am a teacher in a Catholic school, and I purchased these to hang in my classroom. They are so cute! I teach in a very diverse, urban Catholic school, however, and it wasn’t until after I’d hung them that I noticed that all of the Saints have the same skin tone, and are very caucasian. In real life, many of them were not! I hope that you take this the right way, because I do love the drawings and I get many compliments on them in my classroom. However, if you do something similar in the future, I would love to see a greater diversity of skin tone.

    • Hi Megan –

      This is a project from 2014, but if you check out more recent projects, Lacy has been very purposeful in trying to have lots of different types of skin tones, especially in the past year or so and has even written about the importance of including lots of skin tones and suggestions for multicultural art marterials. There is a picture at the end of this post from a more recent craft of a similar nature and I’m sure you’ll notice the difference in representation. πŸ™‚

      Unfortunately, this color version of this project can’t be changed now, but with the black and white version available, we hope that it allows people to color with a variety of skin tones.

      Thanks for the feedback! It’s definitely something we’ve been working on.

      Angie, Catholic Icing Project Manager

      • Thank you so much for your response! I hesitated to even write my comment, because I do love the Saints, and so much love and care went into them. But I’m glad that it’s something everyone is more conscious of these days! This is the most diverse school I’ve ever taught in, and it’s really opened to eyes to how much “white” is the default in a lot of things, when I try to find books, toys, activities, etc that look like my class.

        I love this site, and thank you for all that you do!

  21. Sarah Elizabeth Ater says

    I wish these were included in the new ABC online book downloads for each letter! These are so cute!

    • This set doesn’t match up with the saints that we’re using the new Catholic ABCs online, so we have a different set of statue crafts included with the curriculum that goes with the saint of the week packets.

      However, this is still a great set to purchase and use along with the Catholic ABCs curriculum. πŸ™‚
