My family celebrates the feast of St. Nicholas, where the tradition is to put out your shoes or stockings for him to fill. This comes from the story that St. Nicholas placed gold coins in a poor families' stockings that were hanging to try to help them get out of financial debt and slavery. (You can read the story here.)
Well yesterday, I wanted to create little packages to give to my 1st grade students and children (for their stockings) in honor of his celebration day:) You can easily create a version yourself...
I used the following:
Chocolate Gold Coins
Mini Paper Bags.
Washi Tape (Mine is from Urban Scarlet)
Imagine the possibilities:) So many fun surprises you could place in these little packages.
They would make a fantastic advent calendar as well!
Do you celebrate St. Nicholas?? I loved hearing some of your traditions on facebook!
P.S. Thanks to all of you who have entered the giveaway so far!
