Alphabet of Saints Crafts for Catholic Kids

With the combination of our Catholic ABC's preschool we're working on and with All Saints' Day just around the corner, I wanted to run some awesome saint crafts! And I wanted to start with a "String from Heaven" craft made by my friend Jackie. 


Here's what Jackie said-
So we are doing Elizabeth Foss' Alphabet Path at home with our daughter. Since I can't paint we purchased the gingerbread cutouts of cardboard people at Michael's. Each week I trace the outfits from construction paper for her to cut and paste them together to correspond with the pictures from An Alphabet of Catholic Saintsfor each letter. I do the faces typically and some of them I've cut too (you can probably guess which). We do this in addition to cutting out the Letters (upper and lowercase) for the week and gluing things that start w/ the letter or the actual letter from magazines to that Letter's page.

St. Anne

St. Bernadette

St. Cecilia

St. Dominic

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

St. Francis of Assisi

St. George

And here are some more Saint Crafts A-Z!

I just love these Adorable Alphabet Saints
from Pinewood Castle! And you can find some good
directions on making these kind of dolls at Crafty in Coffeeland.

If you want to try your hand at painting, check out these
Painted Alphabet Peg Dolls from robynallen2 on Flickr.

Here are some other ways to make yourself a procession
of saints- whether they're in alphabetical order or not! :-)

I have always been in love with Alice's Spoon Saints!
You have got to click over to Cottage Blessings to
see her procession across the mantle! :-)

Are you ready for this? These Saint Dolls are so adorable,
and the patterns are available to print for free at 
Ana Braga-Henebry's Journal. I love these so much!

Soon your saints will all come marching in! I hope your kids enjoy making some saint crafts soon - I know mine will!

  2. These are so cute! :)

    An Alphabet of Catholic Saint crafts would be great to do with a classroom of students. Put a name of a saint on a little pieces of paper and put them into a large container. Have each student reach into the container and pick a slip of paper to find out which saint they will make to hang in the classroom.

  3. I love the Alphabet Path, as do my kids!! Doing a garland of letters & Saints is a great idea, especially for those with limited space (like us). Thanks for all the wonderful ideas (here & overall on the site!).

  6. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a
    daily basis. It will always be interesting to read through articles from other writers and practice
    something from their websites.

  7. Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was curious
    about your situation; many of us have created some nice methods and we are looking to exchange
    solutions with others, please shoot me an email if interested.
