IDEA BANK > Virtues Awards

There are a variety of traditions for honoring Our Lady that are appropriate for the month of May. One of them is the “Lady Garden”—a garden of flowers honoring Mary, the Mother of God, usually named after her or symbolizing different aspects of her life.
If maintaining a Mary Garden isn’t practical for your school, this bulletin board can help bring the experience into your classroom. These coloring pages of traditional Mary Garden flowers allow your students to honor Our Lady by presenting her with their very own flowers, colored to the best of their ability.

Each flower is labeled with its Marian name and symbolism to deepen students’ learning.

Use it as a class cultural experience, discussing the flowers and their connection to Our Lady—or make it a way of recognizing virtue: allow a student you catch practicing virtue to “present” that action to Our Lady by coloring her a flower.
