Crafts and activities for Sundays and Holy Days

At the Mass Box, we have a simple goal: 

We want to help children and their families open their hearts to the workings of the Holy Spirit while reading the Bible and preparing for Sunday and Holy Day Masses. 

We know that 90% of learning for kids 2nd grade and under is kinestetic, or hands on. So we created The Mass Box to make doing hands on “stuff” easy for busy families. As The Mass Box evolved, we realized a few things: 

  1. There are HUGE developmental differences between kids in the ages 5-10. 
  2. Most crafts can be enjoyed by kids of those varied age ranges, but printed activities really are a stretch. 
  3. There’s a LOT of awesome resources available, but none of them all linked in one place on a liturgical schedule. 
  4. We want to be a hub providing lots of support to people, including when their kids “age out” of our target age range.

So here we are, in the start of our second round of Cycle A! We’re building an online library of resources. Access to the library is on a free preview through Pentecost Sunday, May 31, 2020, while we build up the library and flesh out the resources. We are building the pages as we go through the liturgical year. 

If you would like to receive the companion craft supplies, a SuperBook DVD, and any extras we mail every month, we invite you to become a regular subscriber:
