Catholic Cuisine is having a St. Nicholas fair and I found this suggestion for stand-up St. Nicholas figures. One mom suggested that they were good candy-cane holders, so I took her idea and ran with it!
The pattern is here at the St. Nicholas Center website. We printed out the pages on white cardstock (since I miraculously had some) and colored them instead of tracing onto colored paper.
Little Princess even wrote a letter to St. Nick asking for sweet candy canes, not minty ones.
Dear St. NickI see that she added the "O and a box. Meg" after I took the picture!
Please give me sweet candy canes that are not mint flavor.
p.s. Pleas do it. O and a box.
We're excited for the feast on Saturday. We're making Speculaas cookies tomorrow and we'll have beignets for breakfast on Saturday. I don't know that they have anything to do with St. Nick, but my kids love them for New Year's Eve, St. Nicholas Day, and the first day of school.
And now, we're off to mail some packages!
