Wondering what to do with a bag of silk petals? Well it helps if you have a creative friend who shows you how to turn them into these.
At present we are placing one flower up each evening we pray our family rosary but I can't help think these would also be useful for "fidgity" youngest son when he prays a decade. He could have ten flowers and each time a prayer is said he could place it in a small basket. Then tip them out and start again with the next decade. He has a set of rosary beads(several actually!) but remembering where he's up to with "all those beads" sort of takes his attention away from their purpose(prayer!). I also think he would like the visual association of giving a flower to Our Lady each time he prays.
