May is traditionally the month that is dedicated to Mary, the mother of Jesus.... Where I live it is a perfect month for this, because it is when spring really hits us for the first time. The trees are finally starting to leaf out, the flowers are starting to bloom, and the grass is turning green. The world is full of the lovliness and beauty of nature. Innocent and pure, delicate and sweet.
While I don't have time to plan all sorts of inspiring crafts and lessons this year (what with the twins, sleep deprivation, and a possible upcomming move), but thanks to the amazing world of blogs, I can benefit from the creativity and time of other moms.
Jordan, from Cheerios and Fingerpaints paints a fun picture for us of her plans with her young children this month. I love her idea of the foam pieces rosary.
Cottage Blessings is alwasy full of beautiful craft ideas to help celebrate and enrich our faith. She has some lovely pictures to help illustrate all of her crafts too.
Dawn, at By Sun and Candlelight also gives us some inspiration for what to do on May Day. Lovely!!
Or maybe... I'll just play it really easy, and go over to Illuminated Ink online, and get some of their craft kits that are already made up for me.
Mary Paper dolls
Mary grotto kit
We'll get to at least one of these beautiful ideas hopefully!!
