Today is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph. Sure, it falls right in the middle of lent but that is no reason why we can’t celebrate! I don’t know about you but I needed some ideas on how to celebrate with my kiddos and make it fun. Here are the 10 resources I found and loved.
- The Kennedy Adventures offers every craft idea you could ever think of and many other kid-oriented ideas.
2. Look to Him and Be Radiant has some quick easy ways to make a Saint Joseph shrine.
4. Look to Him and Be Radiant shared how her class celebrates Saint Joseph day. One fun thing I liked was they made a church out of popsicle sticks. We did this and I loved it! My daughter and I wrote on each popsicle stick something about Saint Joseph or someone to pray for (Saint Joseph pray for dad, Saint Joseph take care of cousin Hope, etc) and my son took the sticks and designed his church.
5. I needed some information about Saint Joseph and Catholic Culture was a great place to start. Not too long that my kids ran off but enough to be knowledgable,

7. Thank Evann is now one of my favorite resources. One thing that you will love is their printable coloring pages and all their Saint Joseph resources. Their coloring pages are amazing and not a typical coloring page.
