Today, I joyfully announce the #SummeroftheLittleLostNun! Together with Park End Books, I’m inviting children (and grown ups) to draw their own little nun and share pictures of where she goes. Does she go to church with you? On vacation? Is she playing near the creek (don’t fall in, little nun!)? Maybe yours will enjoy the garden. Mine does!
Making Your #littlelostnun
You are very welcome to draw your own nun, paint one on a clothespin, or sew one out of felt or other fabric. Variety is one of the great beauties of creation, and I hope to see variety in these little friends. If you need an outline to get you started, Jack Naasko (an artistic friend) kindly created this downloadable template. Color it in, cut it out, and let the adventure begin!
#littlelostnun goes traveling
Some friends of mine were traveling recently, and they created little nuns on the road! Here they are, the first people (and nuns!) to participate in #summerofthelittlelostnun !
Just looking at these pictures makes me happy!
How to participate
Everyone is welcome to join in! Here’s how you do it.
1 – Make your little nun. Draw your own or use the template.
2 – Take her on adventures. Take pictures of her wherever she goes!
3 – Share your pictures, and use the hashtag #summerofthelittlelostnun so that everyone participating can enjoy them. You are also welcome to send them to me. I will be publishing as many as I can on this blog! Use the contact form to get in touch or find me on Facebook.
4 – Another reason to send in your pictures? Park End Books will be offering a 10% OFF coupon for everyone who participates.
I can’t wait to see your pictures! May the #littlelostnun find herself in many good places, with good friends!
