It’s important for children to learn about Eucharistic Adoration and Holy Hours. What better way to pray to Jesus!?
But before you take them to an Adoration Chapel or a service, it might be good to introduce them to the idea.
This Monstrance Craft might be a huge help!
- Clear tape
- Printable Monstrance and Host
- Sheet of construction paper for the background (blue or black look nice)
- Decorative items like glitter/glitter glue, gems, sequins, etc.
- Crayons to color the Monstrance. (yellow, orange, & red)
Print the Monstrance sheet onto yellow paper and cut it out. (No coloring necessary.)
Another Extra Idea…
Use the Monstrance sheet as a coloring page and add your decorations. (This is nice if you hate cutting.)
If you are not using this printable as a coloring sheet, cut out your Monstrance. Color it if you did not print them out on colored paper. Glue the Monstrance onto the construction paper.
Now decorate the Monstrance with glitter, gems, and sequins, or whatever else you choose. You may also decorate the construction paper background if desired.
Glue the Jesus resurrected circle onto the Monstrance’s center circle.
With a small piece of clear tape attach the Eucharist to create a door that opens to reveal the image of Jesus.
