What more wonderful way is there to end the Octave of Easter
than to gain two new Saints for the Church
who once led us as Popes!
To help kids get to know these two holy men, I made a set of cards with interesting facts about each new Saint. The cards could simply be printed and sorted, used as tools for research, or even a trivia game.
Or you could attach all of the cards on a display board like this...
I will have this set up at church this weekend and in my classroom next week. I think that it will be a great no instruction necessary way to introduce people to these two great men.
Click here for the free printable of Which Pope is Which? This document includes the title, name of each Pope, and twelve fact cards for each Saint. The first three pages of facts are all about John XXIII and the last three pages are all about John Paul II.
If you want to do a lift-the-flap kind of game, here is a printable you can use to reveal the answer inside:
Saint John Paul II, pray for us!
Saint John XXIII, pray for us!
