Are you ready to start planning your celebration for Saint Nicholas? We’re going to be visiting one of our Orthodox Christian friends for the feast day, and I’m so excited! My kids have been exploring all of our Catholic Advent crafts for kids and they wanted to make some special crafts to get ready!
For a craft challenged mom like me, these St Nicholas coins are easy peasy.
Saint Nicholas Chocolate Coins
Supplies You’ll Need
Print these pictures of Saint Nicholas onto cardstock and cut out. (Many thanks to Catholic Cuisine!)
Set your kids up with chocolate coins and the St Nicholas templates and encourage them to glue the pictures on the coins.
Working on gluing them together helps with fine motor skills, too!
You’ll be all set with chocolate coins to celebrate the feast day!
