Sacred And Immaculate Heart Crafts For Catholic Kids

The Sacred heart of Jesus and the Immaculate heart of Mary are beautiful and traditional devotions in the Catholic faith. I always have a special place in my heart for these devotions, and I want to share that love with my children. When we celebrate the Sacred and Immaculate heart feast days with our Catholic kids, they can learn about how perfectly Jesus and Mary love them!

Days To Celebrate The Sacred And Immaculate Hearts

So just like I associate snow and sweaters with Christmas, I associate t-shirts, sunblock, long days with the kids, and summertime fun with the Sacred and Immaculate hearts! It would really make a great theme for Catholic vacation bible school!

The Sacred and Immaculate heart images are so beautiful!!! I absolutely love what the Latin community does with these images, and they certainly lend themselves to a lot of fun! There are endless possibilities for Catholic kids here, but lets see a few ideas.

This Sacred and Immaculate heart craft is so fun and easy- it’s made with foil and sharpie markers! So fun and colorful!

I have these Sacred and Immaculate heart peg dolls in my printable peg doll collection. I run you through painting the heads- step by step with pictures- and then you glue the bodies on them. So simple and now anyone can afford to have Catholic peg dolls.

Sacred And Immaculate Heart Food Ideas For Catholic Kids

Again, these feast days are celebrated during the Summer. So I’m not going to figure out a way to associate hot chocolate with the Sacred Heart. If I’m thinking about the colors of hearts, and seasonal summer food, that’s going to compel me to start thinking of watermelons, strawberries and the such. You can also check out these cute food ideas!

We had so much fun making these Sacred and Immaculate heart play dough cookies. Recipe included in the post! And don’t let the name throw you- they’re totally edible.
