Explain the Immaculate Conception to Kids

Catholic ABC's Week: 14 
Letter of the week: I
Theme: Immaculate Conception
Saint of the Week: St. Ignatius
Craft: Immaculate Conception Coloring Page

This Immaculate Conception coloring sheet was drawn by me last year. It is designed to help children (and all Catholics for that matter) understand that the Immaculate Conception refers to Mary being conceived without original sin; it is not referring to when Mary conceived Jesus.

Symbolism in this picture includes Mary in the womb of St. Anne (wearing her signature veil). St. Anne and Mary both have their backs turned towards the apple tree to visually state that Mary was conceived without original sin. There are 3 beams of light coming down from the sun that stand for the trinity. Also, the snake (Satan) is unhappy about what has happened here.

Grab Bag Ideas for the Letter Ii: (be sure to check out the Classroom Script for directions on using the grab bag.) Iguana, Igloo, Indy car, Ice cream cone, Indian corn, Inch worm, toy Iron, Invitation, Ivy, Island, Icon, Immaculate Heart, Insect, Instrument.

For More Resources, check out the Catholic Toolbox lesson plans for the Letter Ii. (Her Ii lesson is on Isaac!)

  12. Pass out animal stickers or small stuffed animals,
    and have the kids imitate the animal they receive.
    Like morphine, they reduce pain and induce feelings of pleasure, but without the
    dangerous side effects. Even though consumers have turned to natural beauty products as a way of preventing animal cruelty and helping the environment, some consumers may want to remain cautious when using organic beauty products.
