We started off with reading the Along the Alphabet Path story and oral narration. While listening to the beautiful fairy song, the kids painted their Columbine flower fairy picture. The Alphabet Flower Fairy songs are all available on Amazon Music which makes it super convenient to just play on your phone. You can get the Flower Fairies Alphabet coloring book on Amazon or you may have some luck googling it. I highly recommend printing on cardstock if you plan on painting them. We also had a simple discussion about the Columbine flower using my flower facts card.
The next day we read about the patroness of musicians, Saint Cecilia, in our special red book, the Catholic Alphabet Book of Saints. Afterward, we said a prayer to Saint Cecilia and they colored a picture that you can find here.
Both the Alphabet Saint Prayer cards and Flower Fact cards are available to download for free.
