Holy Water Fonts: A Craft for May

Alice of Cottage Blessings has posted instructions for making holy water fonts. These are simple enough for little ones to manage, and small children usually enjoy blessing themselves with holy water. The fonts could be tied into the "Mary around the world" theme by adding one of the pictures of Our Lady I have been posting here.

Thank you for the link, my dear!

Many of the children who made those fonts were under five, and, as you can see, they did a lovely job!

For even younger children, improvise with stiff paper plates (as shown in the photos).
