Teaching your children the rosary may seem like a daunting task, but it’s a vital part of our Catholic culture and heritage. You’ll find six reasons to teach children to pray the rosary here, but I’ll be we can all come up with many more.
In my house, we started out simple, by teaching the children how to pray the Hail Mary before bed. My 5 year old daughter now leads the prayer, which warms my heart.
How about a Rosary coloring page for your little ones? You could work on praying a decade, while your children color in the beads to keep up. Another idea would be a rosary collage – try tearing or cutting colorful tissue paper that your children could glue on each bead.
As you get more in depth, you can teach them the Joyful mysteries, the Sorrowful mysteries, and the Glorious mysteries.
