The Queenship of Mary - August 22, 2018
The Solemnity of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary was celebrated on August 15th, but did you know that the Memorial of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary is celebrated just one week later, on August 22nd? That makes sense, since these two events are the 4th and 5th Glorious Mysteries.
Print out the picture of the Assumption, color the picture, and cut out the Mary.
Glue the image of Mary onto blue construction paper.
Next, cut out tissue paper into little squares and crumple in the middle to make cherub wings. Glue the middle of the wings around Mary, wherever you want your cherubs to be.
Next, glue some poms-poms into the middle of the wings. The pom-poms will be your cherub heads. You can use gold or silver glitter glue to make a halo around the “cherub heads.”
Now, glue on cotton balls underneath and even around Mary. These will be the clouds.
You can now decorate your picture however you want. You could put glitter glue on Mary’s halo or the cherubs’ wings. Or you could make a border of craft jewels around your picture as a frame. Have fun!
