So out came these books for inspiration:
And I hung these Mary Paper Doll outfits on the board:
(You can find a link to those Marian Paper Dolls in this post.)
To which one of my boys said,
"Well, look at that. It's like a Mary fashion show."
and went back to coloring.
Another student then immediately made up a little tune that went something like, "Na, Na, Na, Mary Fashion Show!"
Goodness gracious, these kids are entertaining. All I can picture now is Mary (gracefully and modestly) strutting her stuff down a runway while music (Na, Na, Na) plays in the background, and an announcer (maybe Gabriel?) tells the crowd, "And this, ladies and gentlemen, is from the Guadalupe collection."
Forgive me, Blessed Mother.
In another kind of "fashion show," here is a line up of Marian activities from previous posts on this blog. If you are looking for something centering on Our Lady to teach your kids this May, how about one of these?
I do not recommend a Mary Fashion Show, however.
