- Inventory on the way
The 2023 Orthodox Children’s Calendar: “Windows to Heaven: decoding the secret language of icons” is an exploration into holy icons— the practice of iconography, the meaning behind various elements of the icons, and more! Most months focus on one icon and offer a more detailed explanation of colors, hand gestures, background symbolism, etc. We hope that children and adults alike will finish the year with a deeper appreciation of the wisdom offered to us by holy icons, as well as some new recipes and activities in their wheelhouse!
Every calendar includes:
An extra 2 pages for each month with a recipe and activity to inspire further learning about the icon and/or liturgical season. (52 page calendar!)
Quotes from modern iconographers to inspire budding artists.
Church feasts, American holidays, and highlighted fasting seasons.
Select saints days are featured with a small drawing of that saint, to help little ones put a “face to the name.”
Original art throughout, including watercolor paintings of 11 different icons.
- Sticker sheet including stickers for name days, baptisms, weddings, birthdays, confession, unction, eucharist, and so much more! Kids love these!
