Friday (December 6th) was St. Nicholas day. G and I celebrated by reading a story we found online about Saint Nicholas and talked about what makes him special and worth celebrating so many years after he lived (for G’s age, I emphasized St. Nicholas’s generosity and sharing, giving all that he had to those with less than him). Then he colored a couple coloring pages I found here (which is a fantastic resource for printables, recipes, crafts, and stories about St. Nicholas). This is also a great post with info on the real St. Nicholas.
Today at church the Sunday School celebrated St. Nicholas Day by reading some great stories and making a lovely paper craft.
It was a lovely celebration and my little guy loved it.
