Rosary Flipbook

Happy Spring everyone! Warm temperatures have finally reached Michigan, in fact it seems like it went from winter straight to summer. Of course my three year old boy wants to spend every waking (and sleeping!) moment outside.

Big news! I now have a facebook page if anyone would like to follow Rose's Supposes there. You can find it at

May is the month of Mary, so I thought it would be a good time to start up a daily decade of the rosary with the family. We figured we'd start with just a decade a day since we only have the one little one and getting him to sit through an entire rosary would probably be quite difficult. Doing one decade a day Monday through Friday will take us through one set of mysteries a week, and then we plan on doing the Divine Mercy chaplet on the weekend. The past couple years doing the Divine Mercy novena, we have discovered that the chaplet is a great prayer to say with young kids, our son started chiming in with us last year when he was only two!

To help us out with our new prayer routine I decided to make a little booklet with all the mysteries and the different prayers we use. I used images from the Happy Saints Holy Rosary eBook. I used the large prayer card size so it would be easy to take with us wherever we go !

Making it isn't too complicated. Print and cut out the images, laminate them, cut them out again, hole punch them, and then put them on some rings. I put the tabs on before laminating.  Voila! A rosary guide the whole family can use!

  1. Wow, is this clever! Thank you for sharing! I think it's valuable for adults too! :-)

  2. Great use for the Happy Saints Mysteries! I love how you put the book together! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I really like this idea. My children are old enough to choose the images so they could each make their own book!

  4. Love this post...and so did many others! You won the Big Click Awards over at the Catholic Bloggers Network for May!
