The feast of the Crowning of Mary is right around the corner. In fact, it’s only a week away! To help you celebrate this awe-inspiring feast day, I have rounded up 7 free and fun resources.
If you have a resource that you would like added to this list, please don’t hesitate to mention it in the comment section below.
Crowning of Mary Colouring Pages
Feast days, small children, and colouring pages all go together quite nicely, don’t you think? It’s fortunate that you can find a colouring page for almost any feast day, and the feast of the Queenship of Mary is no exception.
I found this super sweet colouring page Jesus placing a crown on His Mother’s head. It is from prierenfamille.com. They have tons of Catholic colouring pages for all sorts of occasions.
I also found another Crowning of Mary colouring page from thecatholickid.com.
Crowning of Mary Paper Craft
This Crowning of Mary paper craft from shininglightdolls.com is a really cute little project for young kids to do. All it involves is a bit of colouring, cutting, and gluing.
It is totally free, however, you do have to ‘purchase’ it. This is a small inconvenience though, as your kids will love this craft.
The Kids’ Bulletin for The Feast of the Queenship of Mary
If you have never heard of the Kids’ Bulletin, then you should definitely check them out. They create a simple bulletin for kids that you can download and print at home. Our parish usually has a bunch available to kids to grab after Mass as well.
The bulletin always has a cute illustration on the front and a summary of that Sundays’ readings, as well as an activity or two on the inside.
You can download and print The Kids’ Bulletin for the Feast of the Queenship of Mary from thekidsbulletin.com.
How to Make a Clover-Chain Crown
This one is more of a hands-on activity. Lacy from catholicicing.com did a video a while ago showing you how you can make a clover-chain crown for Mary. If this is something that would interest you or your children, then check it out!
My Time With Jesus: The Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Mother
You may already be familiar with the EWTN children’s program My Time With Jesus. It is a sweet little show about four kids who get together and read bible stories to time travel to different events in the Bible.
You can find the My Time with Jesus: The Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Mother episode for free on YouTube using this link.
Though it isn’t exactly about the Queenship of Mary or her crowning, it does show children her deep connection to Jesus and why He would crown her as the queen of Heaven.
Prayer to Mary, Queen of Heaven
Queen of heaven, rejoice. Alleluia. The Son whom you were privileged to bear, Alleluia, has risen as he said, Alleluia. Pray to God for us, Alleluia. Rejoice and be glad, Virgin Mary, Alleluia. For the Lord has truly risen, Alleluia.
O God, it was by the Resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, that you brought joy to the world. Grant that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, his Mother, we may attain the joy of eternal life. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Queenship of Mary Prayer Cards
I found this beautiful prayer to Mary, Queen of Heaven on catholic.org and decided to turn it into some printable prayer cards which you can see below. They are free to download and print.

There are many special ways in which you can celebrate any feast day.
