Celebrate and learn about 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima with this free printable coloring page. Our Lady appeared to three peasant children, Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco multiple times in Fatima, Portugal. There were reports of visions and miracles in Fatima every month on the 13th. People all over the world saw as the sun appeared to dance, change colors and spin in the sky. As you celebrate this 100th anniversary or teach about it in school or religious ed, have fun coloring this Our Lady of Fatima coloring page!

The three children reportedly saw the virgin Mary six times between May 13 and October 13. She promised a miracle for her last visit, and indeed thousands saw what we call the “Miracle of the Sun.” You can see all three children, Our Lady and even a ‘spinning’ sun in the coloring page. Surrounding the coloring page is a boarder with 50 spinning suns for 5 decades of the rosary. When Mary appeared to the children she urged them to pray the rosary and pray for an end to war. Our Lady of Fatima is at the bottom in bubble letters so you can even color them!
If you don’t already have it, this is the time to get “The Day the Sun Danced,” a CCC of America movie. My kids love the CCC movies and we have the whole collection!
And if you like that, be sure to check out the two free videos they have on the CCC of America website! Learn the Fatima prayers and pray them with your little ones!
And because I love you all, I have a special gift for one of you: A copy of the CCC of America The Day the Sun Danced. If you would like to try to win this DVD, all you have to do is share this post with a friend (it can be facebook, pinterest, or just let them know about all the free printables on Drawn2BCreative next time you’re at the playground), then leave me a comment on this post! I’ll pick a random winner next Monday, May 8th. That way I have enough time to mail it to them to enjoy on May 13th. I’ll email the winner to get their address.
I pray no matter what you do this year while learning about Fatima, you grow closer to Our Father in Heaven and the Blessed Mother.
