Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe Crafts and Feast Day Ideas

The feast of San Juan Diego is December 9, and the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is December 12. Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to San Juan Diego many times. She gave him roses as a miracle when there were none in bloom and he carried them in his tilma. When he opened his tilma, Our Lady of Guadalupe’s image was left behind! Such a great story for kids! Now here are some ways you can celebrate these upcoming feast days with your kids.

In my Advent Saint pack, there’s a printable Our Lady of Guadalupe and also a Juan Diego craft that your kids will love! It can sit up or hang, and it goes together even easier than it looks.
Your kids can use extra supplies to really make it their own!
You can also see how to make your own Juan Diego tilma here
I also have the printable peg dolls– just paint the head and then you decoupage the rest. So easy!!!
Also, try making these Mexican tissue paper flowers from Our Crafty Mom. So cute!
And whenever we are celebrating Our Lady Of Guadalupe or St. Juan Diego’s feast day, we love to watch the CCC movie, Juan Diego, Messenger Of Guadalupe. This one is my favorite of the CCC movies- I love the music! Happy celebrating!
