Catholic Activity: Family May Crowning

A May crowning is a special way to honor Our Lady during the Month of May. This can be done in schools and parishes. We recommend doing it as a family on Mother's Day.

DIRECTIONS

Decorate an outside altar (weather permitting, otherwise inside) where you have placed a statue of Mary. Make a crown of flowers that will fit the statue. Let the smallest child carry the crown and give everyone else a flower to be placed in a vase on the altar. Tell the children that the flower is a symbol of their love for their heavenly Mother. You can line up in a procession and sing a Marian hymn ("Bring Flowers of the Fairest" is a suggestion) as you process to the altar. After the crowning you can recite the rosary. Finish with dessert and games.
