10 July Activities for Catholic Families {Free Printable}

I can’t believe that June will already be winding down soon.  Didn’t summer break just start?  I’m not sure that I’m ready for the extreme heat of July or helping to get 4-H projects finished up.  (Or, you know, started. *ahem*)

Since next week puts us so very close to the beginning of July, I thought I would get the post about next month’s printable up just a little early.

While I know that these particular printables will only appeal to a portion of my readers, I hope that even if you don’t feel they apply to you, maybe you will check them out and get a couple of ideas for fun and/or meaningful activities that might work for your family too!

(scroll past the list to get to the download link)

1. St. Martha used hospitality as a way to serve Jesus and others. Prepare a meal or treat for someone special. (July 29th)

2. Do a craft to remember that the month of July is dedicated to the Precious Blood of Jesus.  (Craft from the site Under Her Starry Mantle)

3.  Grab out blocks or LEGO bricks and create unique buildings and other creations for St. Thomas the Apostle’s feast day (patron saint of architects – July 2nd).  (Here’s my daughter’s latest LEGO creation. {aff. link})

4. Plan a visit (or video chat, if distance is an issue) with grandparents to celebrate the feast day of Saints Anne and Joachim, grandparents of Jesus (July 26th).

5. Prepare your favorite apple recipe on July 15th, as apples (and rain drops) are symbols of St. Swithun.

6. Visit Eucharistic Adoration (even if only briefly with young children) in honor of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, who had a great devotion to the Eucharist. (July 14th).  (Here is my experience taking my kids to Adoration for the first time.)

7. Pick a service project (could be large or small) to do with your children this month.

8. Make empty tomb rolls as a reminder of St. Mary Magdalene (July 22nd) being present to see both the empty tomb and Christ resurrected.

9. Go fishing (or just play a game of the card game Go Fish!) in honor of St. James the Apostle who was a fisherman (July 25th).

10. Have a special prayer time asking for God’s guidance for your country and its people (especially for those in countries like the United States, Canada, and France that celebrate special holidays for their country this month).

    Great ideas! Thanks, Angie. I knew about some of these saints but not others. We celebrated St. Kateri in Canada on April 17, but going to Eucharistic Adoration to honour her is a great idea.

    Wow the Holy Spirit has done amazing internet things this week. I have been trying to incorporate the monthly dedications in our homeschool, but was having difficulty understanding the devotion to the Precious Blood. I stumbled back onto your site from my old Catholic Mothers Online button, found the link up to List It Tuesdays, decided to join the link up for the very first time, and then here you are sharing an activity from an amazing website. So much info on the Precious Blood. Thank you!
