Welcome to The Crafty Catechist!

Alright, time to kick off this blog with our first post!

I’ll start with some introductory stuff… My name’s Larysa and I’m in the midst of my third year of teaching a kindergarten catechism class. I was raised Catholic and graduated from a Catholic high school. I started volunteering in the Religious Education program as a project for school, but quickly fell in love with it!

Teaching kindergarten has been so fun for me, and I’ve enjoyed it more than I could have ever expected. I’m an only child, so getting to be around little kids is something I definitely don’t take for granted. These kids are a ton of fun and always keep me on my toes, but I must say I am truly blessed to be able to work with them every week!

My hope for this blog is to be able to share some of my crafts and ideas with other like-minded Christians. I plan to post ideas ranging from handmade advent wreaths, to “stained glass” crosses made with tissue paper, to Holy Spirit windsocks- not to mention all the various things you can do with glitter glue!- all made with kindergarten students in mind (and tested by them as well!)

So please stay tuned for crafts to come! (My hope is to blog weekly with different ideas for upcoming classes, but we’ll see where the year takes us!)
