Item description for 70 Sacrament Starters for Children...And Those Who Teach Them by Patricia Mathson...
Overview "Our seven sacraments are quintessentially Catholic! With signs, symbols, gestures, and prayers, we celebrate them as a Church and thus celebrate God's love and presence in our lives and in our world." --from the Introduction Patricia Mathson believes that children learn best by doing. We can teach them about their faith, and in this case about the sacraments, she says, but a hands-on approach works even better because it involves the whole child. These simple, beautiful, and indispensable activities from an experienced DRE offer ten creative ways to celebrate and learn about each of the seven sacraments. They can be used by any catechist, beginners as well as veterans, but also by parents because they offer a great way to teach about the sacraments at home. The activities include visits to the church, prayers, crafts, Scripture readings, stories about the saints, sacrament discussions, and outreach suggestions. What a great gift book for catechists and parents!
