There’s a big, beautiful world out there to explore and no one knows that better than the saints who celebrated it. So, we’re inviting kids everywhere to conquer the Tiny Saints® Summer Challenge!
Complete all three tasks below before August 1st and any adult can award your Summer Challenge certificate! Be sure to email photos and artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can feature your work on our Tiny Saints® Summer Challenge Facebook album!
Before you begin your tasks, take a few minutes to complete the coloring pages and learn about the saints. Then, say a little prayer asking for their guidance and friendship this summer! Let’s get started:
Saint Abigail walked the countryside in search of the place God wanted her to be. She traveled through forests, mountains and valleys. Now it’s your turn! Head out on a walk through nature. Explore the big and small places you’ve never been before. Maybe even sit down to snack and say a little prayer. During your adventure, take photos to share with family and friends.
Saint Francis of Assisi loved animals. He even called them his “brothers” and “sisters.” For this challenge, you have two options! You can (a) create a small attraction for local wildlife - like a birdhouse or flower patch - or (b) call the nearest animal shelter and bring them donated goods. Have fun!
Saint Kateri lived her whole life in the wilderness. Her tribe survived on the fruits, vegetables, meats and herbs God provided. Food was a huge part of their family and community life. It brought everyone together! Next time your family goes to the supermarket or farmer’s market, tag along and prepare a special meal or snack with the ingredients St. Kateri’s family would have used. Examples include corn, beans, turkey, salmon, bread, blueberries and strawberries!
