Taking Flowers To Mary With Kids

Here’s my post from a few years ago about honoring Mary in May. I have links to all of my May Crowning resources at the bottom of this post. I hope your family is blessed with some ideas. 🙂

Since the month of May is dedicated to Mary, it’s a great time to honor her with your little ones! You can find all of my ideas about how to honor Mary with kids in May here, and today we are going to talk about taking flowers to Mary with kids. 

Honoring Mary in May with kids

Some years, our family has a May crowning or makes a May altar for Mary.

This year, our family… moved across 3 states, had a case of the shingles, completed a police academy, delivered a baby 12 minutes after arriving at the hospital on the same day the academy sprayed my husband in the face with mace, came out with a new book, lived with my parents for 9 months while closing on a house, moved again, made new friends, and then moved another family with 2 additional small children into our home for 3 months.

Although this has been a crazy year, I didn’t want to go through the month of May without doing something special with my children to honor Mary. So we kept it simple.

First, the kids picked some flowers from our weed bed garden.

After Mass, they took them over to the Mary statue outside.

Simple. Beautiful. Totally to the point. (This picture reminds me so much of the Fatima children.)

Anabelle is a too small to know what’s going on, but she was there too. Such beauty in a big family- just tuck the little one into your life- they’re along for the ride. 🙂
