Building blocks of prayer.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Catholics celebrate October as the month of the rosary, with October 7 marking the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. Rosaries are a recognizable symbol of the Catholic faith and are made from everything from elaborate jewels to simple wooden beads. But if you need something a little more kid friendly, this Lego version might come in handy.

On a simple cord, creator Mark Groot strings Legos together in the familiar Lego fashion. On the website Etsy.com Groot says, "These rosaries are great for kids and are helpful in keeping them interested in saying the rosary or Chaplet of Divine Mercy."

Groot's own children assemble all the Legos into the rosary and then take them apart one by one as they say the prayers associated with each "bead." A great way to mix prayer time and play time, for the young and the young at heart.
