Little Flowers Girls’ Club Wreath IV Lap Book
I am so excited to share the Wreath IV Lap Book I’ve been working on this summer with you all! I had a pretty good idea when I got started of what I wanted it to turn out like, but transferring it from my mind to actual printable mini-books was much more time consuming than I originally thought it would be. So, even though it is rather simple, I am very proud of this “accomplishment!” 🙂
(Illustrated by my sister Julianna. Thank you Juli!! – of course each girl can decorate their cover however they would like!)
(To be completed before the first meeting. – The girls can complete this book however they would like, either by writing, illustrating, or even pasting in photographs!)
Here is an example of how simple this can be done:
.: Mini-Books that will be added to Monthly :.
(paste or write in one Definition and one Motto at each meeting)
(Compete and add one of each, at each meeting. Have the girls write or narrate a little something they remember (or a lot!) about each person inside the profile books.)
(add one jewel to the Treasure Box at each meeting, pasting or writing the explanation on the back)
.: Additional Meeting Specific Mini Books :.
Meeting #1 – The Gift of Wisdom
Have each girl find and copy their favorite quote from the book of Wisdom
Meeting #2 – The Gift of Understanding
Have each girl find a passage from the Book of Proverbs on Understanding to copy and memorize
Meeting #3 – The Gift of Knowledge
Have each girl find and copy their favorite quote from Psalm 139 on Knowledge
Meeting #4 – The Gift of Counsel
Meeting #5 – The Gift of Fortitude
Meeting #6 – The Gift of Piety
Copy some favorite quotes on Devotions at Mass, to remember at Mass

.: Prayer Booklet and Cards :.
.: Additional Coloring Pages :.
(choose one of these beautiful coloring pages found online for the back cover)
.: Assembly of Lap Book :.
This Lap Book was compiled with 2 light pink file folders with 2 hot pink sheets of cardstock added as flaps/pages for the Saints and Converts (attached with clear packing tape). There are also a couple more sheets of pink cardstock used as well – one for behind the coloring page on the front, and the other creating a pocket on the back to store a St. Therese Paper Doll or St. Therese and Her Family Paper Dolls. Here is a picture of my daughter holding my completed sample Lap Book:
The downloads for all of these Mini Books can all be found in this folder at Scribd.
I have also compiled a document listing which of the Member’s Guide Assignments the Mini-Books included in this Wreath IV Lap Book satisfy towards earning each of the jewels for the Wreath IV patch.
St. Therese, the Little Flower, Pray for us!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
