Often on Pinterest I see catechists pin coloring sheets or craft ideas for children's art work in the atrium. In a Montessori environment, materials on an art shelf are presented to allow a child to 1) learn how to use the material in order to 2) have a language to express his individual response. Primary children may not create art we understand. It's okay. They do. It's their language, their prayer response. From the blog "The Full Monte(sorri)" comes a post on art in a Montessori…

Not for use in the atrium, but a possible home link or Lenten activity for children would be to explore the symbolism of pysanky. Dots for the Virgin's tears, cross hatching for the nets of the fisherman called by Christ, a rooster for the resurrection: the images are all related to the Paschal mystery.

Make Your Own Paint With Water Pages

Paint pages, make it easy to say “yes” to painting, take them when you travel, hikes or picnics!  All you need is some  watercolor paper and small squirt of watercolor paint (don't need much water color paint goes a long way plus it won't stain clothes, pretty much washes out of most everything). allow a few days to dry. Then when you are ready to paint just add water.
