Adoration Craft for Catholic Kids

Pope Francis is having the first worldwide hour of Eucharistic Adoration on the feast of Corpus Christi (which means Body of Christ). Corpus Christi is falling on June 2 for 2013- that’s this coming Sunday! The Vatican is holding this hour from 5-6 in Rome, and we’re all supposed to adjust for our own time zone.

Here are the starting times for the worldwide hour of Eucharistic Adoration in the United States:

  • 11am Eastern
  • 10am Central
  • 9am Mountain
  • 8am Pacific

I made this simple craft to get kids involved with this day of Adoration.

I’m going to call this the mix-and-match-Monstrance-craft because there are a lot of variations you can use!

Start with the world- this is really simple to make. I used this technique with a coffee filter, some markers, and a little water splatter.

To craft the Monstrance, I simply folded up a piece of paper (like I was cutting a paper snowflake) but I used yellow instead of white. I folded another piece of paper in half long ways to cut out a stand for the Monstrance, and a little cross for the top.

For the middle, I made the same Jesus flap that shows the true presence in the Eucharist for kids.

You could also pair the world with a doily Monstrance, or a handprint Monstrance. Likewise, you could use your profile to make the stand if you want.

Just glue all the pieces down with a glue stick. We glued ours to half a piece of black poster board- I love how the colors pop on the black background!

    I do not like you NEW download. I keep clicking on it and download it to my computer and nothing happens other then it downloads but does not open your PDF.

    • There is no downloadable PDF for this project – just directions on how to do it. It sounds like you might be clicking on some ads that are on the site which have recently been added as a way to keep it possible for Lacy to continue to give so many free ideas without needing to charge people for access. (All of the ads have X’s on them, as well as blue arrows in the right corner. So, you’ll want to avoid clicking on those unless the ad is actually something that you are interested in.)
