Happy Feast of the Annunciation! {Coloring Activity}

  Photo Credit:  Boston Catholic Insider

Today, March 25, is the Feast of the Annunciation, which celebrates "the actual Incarnation of Our Savior--the Word made flesh in the womb of His mother, Mary."

9 months from today is December 25 when we celebrate when the Word made flesh is born into the world!  I love my Catholic faith because Marian feast days are celebrated throughout the liturgical calendar, which helps our family focus on the sacred in this secular world throughout the year, not just at Christmas time, when Mary is usually discussed.  

Jennifer over at Catholic Inspired always inspires our family to live and learn our Catholic faith with fun, simple, and faith-filled activities!

She recently posted THIS great coloring activity to celebrate this special Marian feast day and after I downloaded and printed it out, my children enjoyed coloring it in and listing names on the image of the families and people we are keeping in prayer.

Below are pictures of our finished products:

After we read about the Feast of the Annunciation during our "Couch Catechism" time this morning in the Saints for Young Readers for Every Day book (that we LOVE !!!), I thought I would have my children practice some handwriting by adding the Bible verse Luke 1:38 to their coloring activity, which is the part of the annunciation story where Mary follows God's will, despite the fear and doubts she may have had upon hearing the angel's message.  

Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. 
May it be done according to your word."
 -Luke 1:38 

I just traced and cut out a rectangle after I printed out Jennifer's activity so my children would have a space to write the Bible verse, then cut slits at the bottom of each side panel in order to fold it and have it stand up.

May you have a blessed Marian Feast Day!
