Rosary Boxes

The idea of a Rosary Box is to fill a box with small items representing the Mysteries of the Rosary. These can then be used by small children either to follow along with older members of the family praying the Rosary, or to introduce the Mysteries at the child's own level. Even quite young toddlers enjoy these boxes, which make the Biblical events tangible for them.
A commenter asked earlier what to put in a Rosary Box. You can find a list of suggested items here, along with a downloadable file for printing a set of Rosary cards.

This is such an inspired idea! I can see so many more applications for boxes like these, too.

This is a wonderful idea for a site, and I'm really looking forward to all that you (and your other awesome contributors) will be sharing here. Thank you so much!

We made Rosary boxes with our Catholic mosaic group! It was a great project, I am so excited about using our box. I put pictures on my blog:
