Anyway, last year I cut out a large crown from some sturdy paper and each day the kids would colour a small flower and we would glue them on the crown while saying a "Hail Mary" prayer. As you can see at the end of May, the flowers add up. That's 31 days and three children (at that time who could colour) each pasting a flower on the crown.
This year I decided to cut out a large moon shape (aka: circle). I described Mary as the moon. She reflects the light of the Son (Sun). We look to her for light in a dark world but we know she's not the source of the light. Instead of flowers we're going to colour stars. 31 Days, 4 children who can now colour. That's a lot of stars.
Also, each day we'll say a "Hail Mary" for certain people / situations. The list is posted to the right of the moon.
Some ideas that you could offer up a "Hail Mary" for are:
-The sick and those who care for them
-The hungry and those without clean water
-Safety of children in schools/daycares
-Those who do not truly know the peace and love of Jesus
I'll share with you the result of our Moon in June.
