We’ve been working on praying a family Rosary around here, and I’m pleased to announce that it’s going surprisingly well.
With the family Rosary prayer time, we follow some pretty simple rules. I’m ok with little ones who wiggle and move around, or play with LEGOs and play dough to keep their hands busy. As long as they’re reasonably quiet, they get to stay and help lead prayers.
To help them follow along and learn the virtues of the Rosary, I started brainstorming. I wanted something visual to go along with the prayers, to help form a picture in our minds.
I created these printable Rosary cards – perfect for using during family Rosary time or packing into a bag to keep babies and toddlers occupied during Mass.
You’ll find cards for all 20 Mysteries here, in one easy download. They’re designed to print front to back, with a Mystery on one side, along with a child friendly reflection and Bible verses on the back. Artwork provided by our friends at Drawn 2B Creative.

I recommend printing these on cardstock and laminating them for durability. We punch a hole in the upper corner and keep them on a ring, but you could also leave them loose. (you’ll find instructions for printing with your cards.)
