The ultimate Catholic kids busy book!
Our kids have been loving printable busy books this year- and so we thought we'd make a Catholic version for them- and all of you as well! We are so excited to be able to offer this as a free printable resource for Catholic children!
This busy book is a fun way to teach some of the core basics of Catholicism- in this "essential set" we've included:
- The Fruits of the Spirit
- The Works of Mercy
- The Rosary
- The Virtues and Vices
- On the Altar- Mass items
- The Sign of the Cross
- Prayer Puzzles
- The Beatitudes
- The Sacraments
- The 10 Commandments
- The Liturgical Calendar
- The 2 Great Commandments
We plan to add more "chapters" as we create them- so be sure to come back and check the free printables section for add-on chapters. (Or join our email list to be notified when we add more!)
Busy books can be used a variety of ways. We like to laminate ours, and use Velcro dots (which can be found online or at your local craft store) to make our books reusable (shown in the photos!). When laminated, you can also use dry erase markers for the letter practice. These pages can also be printed out and used as-is with tape or glue.
Pictured in the photos are the activity sheets in each chapter, but the book includes many more sheets with definitions and explanations so children (and adults!) can learn as they play. Please see the image with all included sheets for reference.
The download includes a folder with each chapter saved as a separate file, so that you can pick and choose which chapters you'd like to print.
Sized to fit standard letter paper 8.5"x11"
