Introduce children to God’s Word with this wonderfully illustrated and fun-to-use resource that follows the gospels for every Sunday of the three-year Lectionary, as well as for the major feasts of the liturgical year. These pages will enable young children to learn about Jesus in an imaginative and enjoyable way.
Each double-sided activity sheet reinforces the Sunday gospel message with pictures to color and complete, drawing activities, and simple puzzles. Wherever practical, the back page looks ahead to the following Sunday and motivates the children to explore the readings on their own.
The sheets are ideal for use by catechists, teachers, group leaders, and parents. Introduce them as an additional resource in children’s liturgy celebrations; use them to produce a children’s newsletter or include them in the parish newsletter or magazine; use them in religion classes, parish groups, or at school. Simply photocopy as many as you need, one for each child.
Together with its companion book, Footprints in Faith (for children 7-12 years old) Step by Step will be a valuable resource for your parish religious education program or school.
