This packet contains three Stations of the Cross booklets for children of a variety of ages and abilities. Read on to learn more about the three versions contained in this packet.
Purchasing this gives you the license to use it with one family, one co-op class, or in one single classroom. (Please purchase additional copies for each additional class it will be used with. If you purchase two additional licenses on top of the original copy, you may use this for one whole school, one religious education program, or one parish/church.)
This packet includes pages that would be age-appropriate for children in preschool through middle school. It is possible that it may be appropriate for some high school students as well, although the reflections and prayers were written with elementary and middle school-aged children in mind.
Stations of the Cross for Kids: 3 Booklets (Coloring, Reflections, and Prayers) (42 pages):
★ Four pages to make the Stations of the Cross Small Booklet - Each page contains four booklet pages. There is a cover that can be colored, as well as one page for each of the 14 Stations of the Cross. Each of those pages has a picture that can be colored and includes the number of the station and the title of what happens in that station.
★ Title page between small booklet and large booklet
★ 15 pages to make the Stations of the Cross Large Booklet - There is a cover and one full page for each of the Stations of the Cross.
Each Station of the Cross page has:
- an area that could be colored in (but it looks nice not colored in as well)
- the number and name of that station
- a short reflection on what happens in that station
- ways to apply that to things happening in the world and their community as well as possible in their family
- things they could pray about based on the reflection
- questions to help them form ideas of how to take their prayers and act on them
- a blank area at the bottom of each page to write or draw based on those prayers into actions questions
★ Title page between large booklet and paper bag booklet printables
★ 15 pages to make the Stations of the Cross Paper Bag Booklet - Each page has either two of the pages of the booklet or two of the reflection cards. This is all the same content as the large booklet above. However, the formatting of the material is different to make it possible to make the paper bag booklet.
Note: If you want students to write or draw their own reflections, in this version of the project they will do so on the blank side of the reflection cards.
★ 5 pages of instructions with pictures and step-by-step instructions on how to make/assemble the Stations of the Cross Paper Bag Booklet -
Please note: If you are only interested in the small Stations of the Cross Booklet with no prayers and reflections, there is a separate listing for only that booklet.
