This week, we worked on what’s inside the church. Next week, we’ll go tour the church and Father will have items for mass set-up for the kids. This all leads up to the week after when we attend mass for Ash Wednesday. I do lots of prep because of many of the kids, this is the first or only time attending mass, especially for the little ones.
I then discuss several objects with them. We do a fun activity of matching items that we’d see in church or not see in church. Sometimes they circle the items or color the items that they see in church. This time, we drew a line from the object to the church.
You could also simply place an “X” through items not found in church.
Next, we work on tracing the names of some of the objects in church.
Finally, we do a cut and paste activity. I had them color the church and then they were told to color the objects that they would find in the church. We should have cut them out and then glued them onto the church, but we ran out of time!!
You can find the pages that we worked on in the What’s Inside the Church Worksheet Pack in my shop. You can also see my new expanded pack, What’s Inside the Church 2 Worksheet & More Pack for older kids to learn about the objects in church and used during mass. If you use coupon code CHURCH until 28 February, you can take 25% off those 2 printables!
