A Plug for Coloring

I hope everyone had a wonderful Saint Patrick's Day. I wanted to take this opportunity to tell everyone about my favorite resources for coloring pages of saints, especially fitting on this saint's day. The coloring book I used today is the
Fenestrae Fidei: A Coloring Companion for Catholic Mosaic
"This beautiful, original coloring book features a coloring page for every saint and feast day included in Catholic Mosaic, as well as about 20 others. There are four coloring pages per month. Click on the List of Illustrations link below to see all the saints and feasts included. All artwork is the original work of Sean Fitzpatrick and it is done in an iconic style. We thought that this style fit best with the "mosaic" theme. Each picture looks like a stained glass window. While older students will enjoy coloring intricate details of the drawings, this book could be enjoyed by a child as young as 6 years old." Hillside Education

I love the stained glass look of these pictures.

Our learning wall--Saint Patrick style.

My other favorite site to print pictures of saints for coloring is over at the Waltzing Matilda blog. Charlotte has blessed us all with her talent that she shares with everyone. You can find all her coloring pages along the right hand side of her blog.

Happy coloring!!
