Printable Stations of the Cross for Children

Lent is a very popular time for the Stations of the Cross. If you're attending a stations service at your church (usually held on Fridays during lent) you could print some of the coloring sheets/booklets below to take with your young children while you're there. You can also say the stations of the cross at home with your own family, and there's printables for that below, too! Today, I'd like to feature some of my favorite printable versions for kids that I've found on the internet. These are all free to print.

St. John's Church as free printable stations of the cross coloring
pages, and they're really beautifully done!

St. John's Church also has their stations coloring sheets available
to print in booklet form with the prayers and songs. Love it!

I found these lovely stations over on Family in Feast and Feria.
She has a real variety available- print them in black and white, or color,
big, small, booklet form, or as cards to put on a ring! Isn't that awesome?!

(page example for stations on a ring)

 Domestic Church has  Stations of the Cross for a Children's Liturgy.
One station per page- a great read aloud for families. 

fits on just 2 pages and can be colored! :-)

This is a post I did last year, but some of the links got old, and I found some new printable stations of the cross for kids, so I decided to update this post and share it with all of you again for lent! If you're looking for a set that's no longer here, that's because the links weren't working anymore. If you know of another great set of Stations of the Cross that can be printed for free, please leave the link in the comments! Thanks! :-)

  1. Lacy, Your ideas for Lent have been featured on our blog site:
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. We used the first Stations you wrote about, and found small objects to represent each one. Last year, my daughter used it as she walked through our church praying the Stations. She keeps it all together in a small little box.

  3. AMAZING blog, Lacy!

    Thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful ideas and links ~ My computer isn't able to download fast enough :)

    Yours in faith,

  4. Lacy,
    I love your ideas but being all thumbs when it comes to crafts I can't figure out to assemble this pocket size stations of the cross.
    Yes, I can fold but how do I attach them all together. I was unable to find the link with directions.

  5. Hi Debra-

    I couldn't find the Cathechist article either. Here's how I put it together based on their photo:
    1. Cut both pages in half (book cover - Station 3 together, Station 4-7 together, etc.)
    2. Lay out first half of stations in a line. Overlap 1/4 inch paper between Station 3 and 4 and tape. Lay out 2nd half and tape between Station 11 and 12.
    3. Put the 2 strips of paper back to back and tape in several places to hold together.
    4. Fold along the double-sided strip alternating between "mountain" and "valley" folds. The first fold of the book cover/Station 1 is a left-facing, mountain fold. This is opposite how a book would usually open so this may be confusing initially. I approximated my folds midway between the adjoining pictures.
    5. This makes an "accordian-style" booklet when put together. The book cover is on the front and Station 7 is at the back. As you read it, flip it over to read the back side. Hope this is helpful!

    Thanks for your terrific blog Lacy! All your ideas enrich both my CCD teaching and our spirituality at home!! I hope you win the award! :)

  6. Thank-you, Anonymous, for your kind help!!! And thank-you, Lacy!!!! This stuff is fabulous :)

  7. I really like the idea of the pocket accordion fold book of the stations of the cross. I tried to click on the link to, but it says the website is no longer available. Any idea why and if this is so, is there another way I can get a blank copy of this book? Thank you, Teresa

  8. Hello Teresa,
    Yes, before I was finished with those Stations, the link stopped working for me. I had already downloaded the b & w ones but still wanted the colour ones. So I did some digging around the website, and you can still get them here:
    The link on the bottom of the list is the front page of the ones in colour, and the fifth link from the bottom is the back. The b & w ones are there, too. Hope this helps :)

  9. I cannot believe all the wonderful ideas!!! You have inspired my artist that had run dry-and kept my wallet (and my husband) very happy. Thank you-am spreading the word like the crazy mother I am!!!

  10. I just found your blog and love it! We used the printable stations (the small ones to put on a ring) today in class. I made two sets, and whited out the number and name of the station on the photos. We divided our class into two teams, mixed up the cards and had them put them in order on the floor, and then on a binder ring. Lots of fun!
