Easy Divine Mercy Chaplet for Kids

Easy Divine Mercy Chaplet Craft for Kids

A couple years ago I was approached and asked to help me a Divine Mercy Good Deed Bead InstrDivine Mercy Good Deed Beadsuctions for the Girls Scouts for their highest and newest Badge- styled after the St. Therese Sacrifice/Good Deed Beads. Good Deed beads are great as the beads stay in place once you pull them to help you count your acts of love or your prayers in the chaplet!

I thought it would be nice to share these instructions in case anyone else wanted to make these with their children to celebrate or teach them more about Divine Mercy this Sunday. You can get the pdf to print the How to Make Divine Mercy Good Deed/Sacrifice Beads Here

To make these I put a Divine Mercy medal on the end and a four way cross on the other end. I made them with different bead variations – one with 10 red and 1 white, one with 2 red, 2 white rotated for 10 beads and a white bead on the end and one with 5 red and then 5 white with one white on the end. I would have liked a blue bead for the end but didn’t have any.

This is a great and simple devotion to do with your little ones. My son who is three prays this every night with me and really enjoys it.

Here is an easy to follow and nice printable explaining how to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Just copy the image and paste it into word then you can enlarge it and print as needed.

    What a beautiful idea. I would like to create these with my entire Catholic School to celebrate the upcoming Holy Year of Mercy. Do you know the best place to purchase the medals, crosses & beads? We will need to make over 1,000!

    This is lovely, but I’m wondering if you have a document that explains how you pray the chaplet with children. I have read about praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet for adults and it seems a bit confusing. Do you have any recommendations or resources?

    I am making these at a Family Faith Formation Event. We have over 100 families coming and each family will make 1. Do you know if they sell kits to make these with the beads, string and medals all already divided for each individual?

      Yes – each kit comes pre-assembled with everything you need to make and complete the beads! Blessings
