Little Flowers Girls' Club ~ Generosity

Last Thursday I hosted our 4th Little Flowers Girls' Club meeting for this year. I was so glad that most of the girls were healthy once again and we had 9 in attendance, unlike our last meeting with just 4 girls. Nevertheless, it was a rather laid back meeting. I'm not sure if that was due to the fact that we have settled into a nice routine, or the fact that (since my husband had been out of town all week, and I had not seen any adults in days!) I was desperately needing some adult conversation/interaction. It was probably a bit of both... Whatever the reason, I enjoyed the afternoon just as much as the girls! Now if I could JUST figure out what the other moms are up to, and kept whispering about, when I would leave the room... I guess I am just going to have to wait and see... and work on the virtue of patience! ;)


Anyhow, here are a few highlights from our meeting:


~ Coloring Pages ~


Saint Katharine Drexel Coloring Page
Available on the Faith Keepers Combo from Catholic Artworks

(If you are looking for another option, there is a lovely
coloring page of St. Katharine Drexel in Fenestrae Fidei as well.)








~ Meeting ~

We began our meeting with our opening prayers and then reviewed the virtue of Courage from our last meeting. The girls shared some of the activities that they were able to complete from their checklists in the Wreath 2 Member's Guide and choose prizes accordingly from the prize box (which is stocked with various Coloring and Father Lovasik Books, Stickers, Stamps, Notebooks, Candy, Bubbles, and more!).

We then moved on to our current months virtue, the virtue of Generosity, and learned about St. Katharine Drexel. I also expanded the lesson to review the Corporal Works of Mercy, tying them in to the virtue of Generosity.



~ Notebook Pages ~


I included the memory verse for Generosity, an icon image of St. Katharine Drexel, The Corporal Works of Mercy, multiple daisy images, Martha Stewart dimensional daisy stickers, a quote from the bible, and the prayer to St. Katharine Drexel from the Little Flowers Virtues CD.

(If you would like to download the document I created for this notebook page, you can do so here. Also, you can find links to all of my notebook page documents in this post.)


*I've updated this post as well as my downloadable document with the correct spelling of St. Katharine's name.  It seems to be spelled incorrectly just about everywhere, including on the coloring pages and in the Little Flowers Materials. Thank you, Kathy, for the correction.


Here is a picture of the sample pages I had prepared for the meeting. (Yep, this past summer, I accidentally made this page twice. Oops! It seemed extremely familiar as I was working on it. lol!)



And here are the girls finished pages:




~ A Sweet and Generous Surprise! ~


I thought it was so SUPER sweet that "Branch" had brought gifts for all the girls in our group, which she had so thoughtfully and generously made for everyone!


She even made one for me!! Thank you so much Branch!! I LOVE it!!



~ Craft ~


Our craft this month was putting together these cute Daisy Candles. Each girl made two: one to keep and one to give-away.


I am really loving the various craft kits I ordered! They don't take much (or any!) preparation, and the girls have so much fun putting them together.



~ Snack Time ~


Daisy Cupcakes!

Saint Katharine Drexel, you were very generous with the oppressed and poor, help us to be generous too.

Saint Therese, the Little Flower, pray for us!

  1. Maybe the whispering has nothing to do with you----did you ever think of that?

  2. Perhaps the ladies were marveling at your beauty in their whispering....but I really think that I smell baby shower in all of those whisperings....or maybe another little surprise for after baby Rose arrives?? Keep us posted if anything does come of it. I guess we'll have to wait patiently along with you. :)

  3. A random question... where did you get the dress that Twinkle Toes is wearing in these photos? The cats on it are adorable, and I bet my cat-loving girls would love to have dresses like it!

  4. Erin ~ The dress is from Gymboree's Purrfect Autumn line. I just checked there website but it looks like it is no longer available online. Our store still had it when I was there a few days ago, so perhaps you could check if you have one, and if not, ebay might be an option. It is darling, isn't it!?!

  6. I am leading our little flowers meeting tomorrow about St. Katharine Drexel and I am interested in downloading your pages. It says they are private and cannot be downloaded unless you change the settings or send it to me. If you could I would really appreciate that! Have a blessed day.

    1. I'm sorry they are no longer available. I was asked to remove them by the publisher and author of the program. I worked with them to create new pages that are available directly from the publisher.
