This Lent I am really hoping to familiarize my children more with the Stations of the Cross. There are a number of books on the Stations available for children, which are a great resource. But for young children like mine, it is also helpful to have something to hold, color, or listen to while we're praying. With that in mind, I thought I would share what additional Stations of the Cross resources are available.
I have organized these in order of price, from cheapest to most expensive. Whether you're looking for an inexpensive consumable resource or a quality family heirloom, you should be able to find an item here to help you teach your children about Our Lord's Passion.
This Stations of the Cross coloring book is available from a number of online sources. Right now it's on sale for $1.69 at Aquinas and More.
Oriental Trading has these Color Your Own Stations of the Cross Wheels for just $5.00 for a set of 12. This is nice because children can first make the craft and then use it while praying the Stations.
You could hang these Stations of the Cross posters around the room while you are praying as a good visual for everyone. The set of 15 posters is $9.99 from Autom.
These Stations Of The Cross Religious Statues by Collections Etc are just $12.99 on Amazon for the set. It is hard to tell how large they are, but it still seems like a really good deal.
For an audio version of the Stations, Holy Heroes has this Stations of the Cross CD for $14.95. Children lead the Stations on the CD, and it includes verses from the Stabat Mater after each station. I'll be watching for sales, since this is on my wishlist for this Lent!
Look at these beautiful Stations of the Cross Ornaments from Etsy shop Jesse Tree Treasures. At $38.95, this set is a little more expensive, but it could be treasured year after year. I can imagine children taking turns hanging the ornaments for each station.
Finally, for a meaningful activity for the family to do together that could also become an heirloom, check out this Stations of the Cross Grotto Kit. It is $45, so it is something that I would recommend for older children and as something to plan to treasure for years.
I'm linking this to the Lenten link-up on Catholic Icing. Check out all the links for more ideas for observing Lent with your family.
