Honoring Mary In The Month Of May With Kids

Since the month of May is dedicated to Mary, it’s a great time to honor her with your little ones! There are many Catholic traditions when it comes to honoring Mary, and I just love making sure the kids get included in these. So let’s look at honoring Mary in the month of Mary with kids. 

Honoring Mary in May with kids

Plant A Mary Garden (Or Clean Up The One You Have)

Having a Mary garden is not only a great way to honor Mary, but it can also provide a quiet and reflective place for your family to go to her in prayer. I have a post on how to start a Mary garden here.

  1. Simple and beautiful.

  2. Love the simplicity. Beautiful yard, btw 🙂 I really enjoyed your talk at the Carolina IHM Conference. Thanks so much for taking the time to come. Yesterday I thought of your tip on keeping it simple & tying our faith in to what we already do, when in the business of life, I hadn’t even realized it was Holy Trinity Sunday until the priest spoke on it at Mass. So, when we made our regular Sunday waffles/pancakes, I just pulled out the shamrock cookie cutter, explained the meaning to my little one, and oh so simply made a Holy Trinity breakfast. Thanks again for sharing your ideas and talents with all of us. I really enjoy your blog.

    • Great idea with the pancakes! So glad you could make it to the conference. 🙂

  3. Hi! I love your blog so much! I was thinking about starting my own for Catholic teens. I had a couple questions I would like to ask you, is there a way I can?

  4. Thank you for sharing. That picture IS reminiscent of the Fatima children. How wonderful!

  5. I am looking for the Mary craft Mary Queen of Heaven …you fold back the bottom and it makes a little stand up statue of Mary that says Mary Queen of heaven, make us your little crowns…..
    I cannot seem to locate the item? I have my original copy at school
