Pope John Paul II Crafts, Lesson Plans, Printables, and More!

Are you ready to celebrate the Beatification of Pope John Paul II, May 1, 2011? That’s right- the beatification of JP II is coming up fast! It’s actually on Divine Mercy Sunday. Beatification is the second to the last step to sainthood, and will give him the title of blessed. “JP 2, We Love You!!!” (Wow, yelling that brings back some major memories of World Youth Day, Toronto!) Ok, on with the JPII crafts and ideas for kids. 🙂

from Chantal’s Stained Glass.


The Bishops of Rome has made a lot of cool
JP II stuff for kids, including these sun-catchers!
from the St. Faustina kids page.


The Bishops of Rome and Catholic Family
used the coloring page above to make these
JP II crafts- I love these little statues!


Check out this Ty doll converted to a
Pope John Paul II doll on Arma Dei. Too cute!


Remember what’s going on at the Vatican for the day
with my edible Papal flag treat for kids!


Find Pope John Paul II lapbooks here.

You can print out a whole packet of Saint Pope John Paul II activities from Real Life at Home.

Saint Pope John Paul II Printables and Worksheets Packet

Print a coloring page of JP II’s coat of arms and learn a ton on Catholic Family. I love this project!

Also, find this JP II Coat of Arms Cake on

Keeper of the Keys. What a neat idea!


Craft a “Pope Hat” or a “Miter” with Catholic Missionary Family.

Did you know you can buy a

Pope John Paul II Comic Book? Pretty cool, huh?

You can also get Pope John II paper dolls!

Lesson Plans and More for JP II: If you’re looking for educational ideas for Pope John Paul II for older kids, check out this JP II unit study, and also these word searches.

Another idea for celebrating the soon to be Blessed John Paul II
would be to make a Polish dinner (since he was from Poland). If you’re
like me and you don’t cook, perhaps you could celebrate with “Papa
John’s” pizza??? 😉


Don’t forget to check out my posts on celebrating Divine Mercy Sunday, because they’ll all be handy for this special occasion, too! 😉
