Joan of Arc Puppet Show

Joan of Arc Puppet ShowWhen it comes to saints, Joan of Arc is high on my list of favorites. There are so many things about her that I admire. She was open to listening to God despite outside pressure. She inserted herself into a role that she wasn’t trained for, nor knew much about having a peasant background. She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. She was brave. These are all pretty amazing attributes. My kids get pretty excited about stories of saints that involve knights and shields, battles and bravery. Joan gives me daughter a way to commiserate with the boys about sword fighting and battles, as well.

One trick that I’ve used to help my children learn about the saints is to have them read about the saint and then reenact a short portion of their story for me. This time I thought it would be fun to do it another way: by telling the story with a puppet show!

This is one of those simple and easy crafts that you can plan ahead for, that uses little supplies. All you need is a shoe box or similar, scissors, crayons or markers, tape, and some skewers. Joan of Arc Puppet Show

With Joan’s feast day coming up on May 30th this is a great little craft that you can put together to share with your family, or anytime!

Last year Catholic Sistas launched an all-new product to the Catholic planning world–a downloadable and printable calendar for YOU to print. It received such a wonderful response, we are now in year two of offering the academic calendar. I love, love, LOVE mine. I use it every day and it sits to the right of my laptop for easy access to see what’s going on for the day. At $7.50 for the calendar and $3.50 for bundles, you really can’t go wrong. It’s versatile and meets the needs and budgets of many, from those who want to print in black & white and save a few dollars in printing at home, those who want to print in color or who want to spend the extra money and have it printed professionally and bound.

TEN lucky winners will receive a FREE download of the new academic calendar AND their choice of ONE free bundle {homeschool, household management, and Catholic blogger}.
