The Ball of Red String by Marlene Halpin, O.P., is a classic guided meditation for children that takes little ones on an imaginative journey to a quiet place where they meet Jesus. The book is out in a new edition illustrated by Carrie Schuler.
Now more than ever, amid endless screens and sensory overload, we must find ways to help children find quiet, tap into their imaginations through gentle words and expert storytelling, and connect with Jesus, the one who helps them know they are loved, valued, and worthy.
Accompanying the new edition are printable activities inspired by the book: a coloring page and door hanger. The coloring page is perfect for children or adults, so share your creativity by taking a picture of your finished coloring page and posting it on the Ignatian Spirituality Facebook page.
