Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto Craft


Happy Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes!  

It seems like just yesterday that I helped our oldest four with this sweet craft in honor of Our Lady...

Fourteen years later, I spent some time this afternoon helping our current four year old make it today! It's such a simple craft and turns out lovely. 


Supplies:

Charlotte's is perfect! I printed it at 75%.


Construction Paper and Scissors
Last time we used yellow and brown. This time we went with blue and black

Tissue Paper 
Crumple up little pieces to glue down as flowers and leaves. 

Glue 

Glitter (Optional)
Back in 2008 we used gold glitter for Our Lady's halo. 
I only had clear glitter this time so we used it to surround Our Lady. 








Ever Immaculate Virgin Mother of Mercy, Health of the sick, refuge of sinners, Comforter of the afflicted, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings; look with mercy on me. By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes, you were pleased to make it a privileged sanctuary, whence you dispense your favors; and already many sufferers have obtained the cure for their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal.

I come, therefore, with complete confidence to implore your maternal intercession. Obtain, O loving Mother, the grant of my requests. Through gratitude for your favors, I will endeavor to imitate your virtues, that I may one day share your glory. Amen.

Our Lady of Lourdes, ora pro nobis!

  1. This is so cute. I'm going to have to do this!!

    Jessica, if you could spare some prayers for my friend, her husband and 9 year old son was in a horrific roll over accident last night and her and her teen daughter need lots of prayers. So many many prayers. VERY sad.

  3. When I see that gorgeous little girl, proudly holding her lovely work of art, I can't help but remember your posts from her infancy. Did you ever get to catch up on your sleep? I sure hope so! What a living doll she is, and what a lovely family.

  4. Beautiful craft and photos, thanks for sharing.

    Jessica, have you heard of the new public rosary initiative that is spreading across the world? Perhaps you can share with your readers. The world needs so much prayer and public prayer is particularly powerful: https://public-rosary.org/

    This is an example of the power of public recitation of the Rosary in history: https://oblatesosbbelmont.org/2013/10/28/rosary-miracle-brazil-saved-from-communism/

    Anyone can join in or start another group. God bless
