St. Nicholas Feast Day Ideas!
My kids have just had a blast waiting for the feast of St. Nicholas this year. Reading stores about his life had them very excited for his feast day. A great craft we did this year on his feast day was colouring in this free beautiful holy cards that we found at The St. Nicholas Centre website.
They have these free printable St. Nicholas holy cards from Catholic Artworks (which I love) we printed them off in black and white so the kids could color them but they also have them for free in colour too!
Other Ideas for this Craft:
- My daughter really enjoyed colouring these in -we have cut them out and are including them with some of the Christmas cards we`re mailing out!
- She also cut St. Nicholas out and glued him to a popsicle stick to make her own puppet!
- We emailed them to our nephew to enjoy on December 6th too
Great Movies for the Feast of St. Nicholas
We have two great movies we`d like to share about this great saint for kids!
The first is CCC`s video Nicolas: The Boy Who Became Santa – the kids really enjoy this movie. As true to most CCC video`s the try to stick to the real story and teach the virtue of the saint, leaving it as true to life as possible. We purchased our CCC video set from Catholic Video as it was the best deal we could find – the whole set for $99 and free shipping too. It is a great quality cartoon with a great lesson:)
The Other movie we like is Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving – this is a cute retelling of the story of St. Nicolas. I don`t know about your kids but mine love veggie tales so this has been a big hit with them this year! It has all the veggie tale silliness, goodness and cuteness expect! You have come to know and love!
Here is another great craft for St. Nicholas you might enjoy – A Stocking Craft!
