In this post I will be sharing a set of free printable Rosary Christmas cards to colour and give to loved ones as a spiritual bouquet.
If you don’t know how to pray the rosary yet, no worries! I have a step-by-step guide to the Rosary, right here.
If you are new here, welcome! I’m a homeschool, homebirth, homemade mom of 5 boys. Check out my about page to meet me and my family.
Give the Gift of Prayer this Christmas
Here it is! The answer to what do I give to my great-aunt this Christmas!
No one needs another pair of fuzzy, tacky Christmas socks that fall apart after one washing. Why not give a gift with eternal value? The gift of prayer.
How to Give the Gift of a Rosary Prayer
I wanted to make giving the gift of prayer as easy as possible this busy Christmas season.
Here’s how you do it: Simply scroll down to access the free printable. Once you have printed it off, pray the rosary for the person to whom you wish to give this card. During or after prayer, colour your card as desired and fill it in with a handwritten note. Then, send your card!
- Print your Rosary Christmas Card.
- Pray the Rosary for someone.
- Colour it in and add a note.
- Give your card!
The Origin of My Rosary Greeting Cards
The idea to design Rosary Greeting cards came from being absolutely awful at arts and crafts.
Here’s the story: my children attend a wonderful church program called CLAY, and as a thank-you gift for one of the leaders, the pastor there, we decided to have the children make a spiritual bouquet.
Unfortunately for everyone in attendance, there was no one but me to make the garden-themed spiritual bouquet poster. It was pretty pathetic-looking!
After that, I realized I could take this problem to Canva and created a bunch of colourable Rosary greeting cards for kids to easily fill in for themselves. This activity also helps busy hands focus for an entire rosary (ok, maybe at least a couple decades!).
Here are the original Gift of the Holy Rosary cards. I’m hoping to add other spiritual bouquet designs, such as the Mass, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, a Novena, a visit to Eucharistic Adoration, and so on. I have lots more ideas than I have time, my friends.
Putting a Christmas Spin on It
Since praying the Rosary is such a great gift idea for our children to give to our priests, grandparents, neighbours, and teachers at this time of year, I figured I would design a festive Christmas card set to make it as simple as possible.
It is good that things can be simple and spiritually beneficial at this holy time of year.
With that in mind, check out my free printable liturgical living calendar for December!
Information about the Free Printable
How to Print
The printable is 20 pages long in total with the information page at the beginning. It is designed to be printed double-sided, then trimmed and folded into a card.
If you do not have a printer capable of automatic duplex (double-sided) printing, you will have to select to “print odd pages only” then feed the paper back in and print “even pages only.”
Perhaps you may want to start with a test page to make sure you feed the paper back in correctly. There is actually nothing more frustrating than printers sometimes!
Nine different designs are included in this printable. I made four designs with full colour, four designs with some colour (ink-saver!) and 1 design completely black and white.
All the designs have some space for the children to add personalization and a note.
