Ideas for Teaching Catholic Kids About Baptism

Baptism is so important, and it’s a great thing to make sure that your kids truly understand. One thing you can do to get across the importance of Baptism to your kids is to celebrate their Baptism anniversary. Look up their Baptism date, put it on the calendar, and make them a cake. Also, light their Baptism candle at dinner. Provide some holy water for everyone to bless themselves, and renew their Baptismal promises. Here are some ideas and links to help you celebrate Baptism, as well as teach your kids all about Baptism.

    I would like some ideas to teach adults about baptism during preparation classes.
    Thank you

  2. Thank you! I am using your holy water bottle idea with my 1st grade Sunday school.

  3. Lacy, your ideas are so helpful. I use them all the time for my 2nd grade sacramental preparation class. Thank you so much.

    Lacy, you are so often a lifesaver! I am a DRE with more kids than enough teachers. So this year God supplied some volunteers without any teaching experience. Your crafts and little lessons help me guide them. When they have fun teaching with them, I am hoping they get the confidence they need to stay with it.
