Saints Mobile

Saints Mobile craft activity

Create a saints mobile with children to explore the lives of holy men and women of God. From Our Lady, Mother of Africa to Saint Joan of Arc and Saint Sebastian, the saints represented in this downloadable activity are all featured in Loyola Kids Book of Seasons, Feasts, and Celebrations by Amy Welborn. Each medallion for the mobile includes a picture of a saint on one side and room for facts about the saint or a prayer asking for the saint’s intercession on the opposite side.

Use the mobile as an All Saints Day activity, or add saints to the chain throughout the year as we celebrate each feast.

Share photos of your completed mobiles on our Catholic Faith Formation group page on Facebook.

  1. This is a lovely activity.
    I do have one question: why do we continue to perpetuate the idea that All Saints’ Day is about the canonized saints, when it is actually more about those who are not canonized yet still have their place in the heavenly kingdom?
    I have nothing against canonized saints, but not everyone is a “Hall of Famer” in God’s Kingdom.
    I think we need to re-examine our emphasis on this feast and its meaning, and focus more on the entire Communion of Saints, i.e., all the saints in heaven, the holy souls being purified, and the People of God on earth.
    To this end, I have our children making “Remembrance Roses” on which they list names of people from all three groups. I’d be happy to share it with all, if you’d like.
    Grace and peace to all!
