Mary Art Project for Kids

My preschooler crafted Mary, Queen of Heaven, as a handprint project- and I'm very happy with the results! :-)  This would be a perfect craft for a May crowning, or just a fun art project for Catholic kids anytime! 

Completed Project

Start by having your child stamp his or her foot, hand, and fingers.

(There are 12 "star" fingerprints around Mary)

I would suggest letting this dry before moving on.
  1. *tip* When stamping your hand, you might not want to paint all the way up the fingers. I didn't.
  2. Paint Mary's blue veil around her face.
  3. Trace around the outside of Mary's crown with gold glitter glue, and add dotted jewels with red glitter glue.
  4. Paint on Mary's face.

I then let my daughter decorate the stars with glitter glue. Older kids can draw asterisk shapes on top of the fingerprints with the glitter glue.

Here are some of my 4 year old's completed Mary trading cards. She is so proud of these- I'm not sure what she's going to think of mailing them away!

 The Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary is coming up on May 31. Happy Catholic Crafting!

  1. Lacy~ This is SOOOOO adorable and such a creative idea! I just LOVE it:) We will definitely use it in the future.

  2. Finally, a drawing project my three year old boy, who hates drawing, could do and succeed at! thank you for this great idea!

  3. I love this idea lacy. it's beautiful. we must try this at our house. and those trading cards are soooo lovely. be sure to keep one of them for your family -- it's something your daughter will treasure.

  4. I love this idea!!!! I have done many hand and foot paintings and this is my new favorite!!!!

  5. What a great idea! I am having a hard time getting my kids to complete 5 trading cards each. Wish I had thought of something as cute and easy to duplicate! Love them!

  6. Lacy, those are all so beautiful! The trading cards are so precious - I do hope she makes an extra for her Mommy! :-) And Alicia, duplicates are fine, especially for the younger participants as they will be going to five different other kids.

  7. Thanks for this adorable idea! I'll be doing this with our Pre-K4J group tomorrow!

  8. Cool! I am a fan of this project- it's fun! :-)
