Saints of October Printouts

Being thrifty, I didn't buy my nieces a coloring book for their breaks in between classes this year. I feel like a rotten teacher, and an even more rotten Aunt.

So I'm trying to make up for it by making them some coloring pages. I made St. Therese first because her Feast Day was fast approaching at the time, and then St. Francis... you can tell he's a pretty rough drawing... and then I got hooked and couldn't stop. I did almost all of the saints of October, some whose Feasts even fall on a Saturday or Sunday this year.

I'm certainly no artist; hands scare me and my creepy hands on the drawings scare me more, but little kids don't seem to care about such artistic blunders license.

If you want to use them for your kids, for CCD, or for any other private use, feel free to browse them here, or check out the right sidebar of the blog for printable versions. (Just please don't try to rework them in any way to sell.)

If the girls enjoy them I might keep going through the year.

These are fabulous!!!!

Patti said...

These are really good.  Did you decide to do any other months? (I'm helping with RCIA and would love to have something to give the kids when they get antsy at our 1st Sunday meetings after Mass.)

These are SO great!  I'm teaching Pre-K for a homeschool co-op and needed a picture of St. Jude for the kids to color (sine his feast day is coming up).  I googled "St. Jude Coloring Page" and went to images.  When I went to the one I liked, imagine my surprise when it brought me to your blog!  You really are multi-talented!  :-)  Thanks for saving me - it is supposed to rain tomorrow and I need to keep the kids busy for three hours without going outside.  YIKES!

Thank you for sharing!  St. Jude is my son's patron saint, and I am looking for activities for teaching him about patron saints/All Saint's Day.  It is so difficult to find activities.

Farmer's City Wife said...

Glad to help, Meg! It is, indeed. Have you seen Catholic Icing? It's a great resource!

Jennifer Salamon said...

THank you for these greaet coloring pages!!  Is there a way for me to print them out without having to subscribe to Scrib?

Jackie C said...

I will be posting soon your coloring  pages that we used for our homeschool. Thank you for your blessings. What a beautiful blog and family resource site! =) Jackie C http://mycatholicfamilycircus.blogspot.com/

Farmer's City Wife said...

Hi Jennifer! I don't think you need to subscribe to ScribD to print them out (unless they've changed their policies). You should just be able to click each document... but let me know if not and I can probably e-mail them to you.

Shellske said...

Thank you for letting me use your image of St. Luke.  I teach kindergarten in a Catholic school and we are doing a Patron Saint project.

Happy to help :).

Hi, Thanks for the fantastic colouring in pages. They are great for keeping little people busy during senior Legion of Mary meetings.
