Ready to bring some light to the dark days of December? Let’s celebrate the feast day of St. Lucia! (don’t miss our Catholic Advent crafts for kids  with more ideas on celebrating this liturgical season)

 

Looking for St Lucy crafts to enjoy with your children this Advent season? These are simple, but some of our favorites.

St Lucia Scissor Craft

First, we worked on these simple crafts about St Lucia to help the boys with their scissor skills. They’re having some trouble with writing, but coloring and cutting paper helps to strengthen their hands.

St Lucia’s Song

We also learned a cute song to help the children remember St Lucia’s story. You can print out the song from Making Learning Fun.

The kids had fun creating a St Lucia puppet out of our toilet paper roll stash, too.

 

St Lucia’s Crown

 
What would St Lucy’s Day be, without a crown? For the girls, we follow this template.

Swedish Star Hats for the Boys

Girls celebrating St Lucia’s Day wear crowns, while the boys wear Star Hats. These are easy to re-create at home.

Things you’ll need:
White Cardstock
Star Template
Yellow Construction Paper
Glue Sticks
Stapler

 

Shape the cardstock into a cone hat and staple together. Using the star template, cut stars out of the construction paper and glue them to the hat. In no time, you’ll have a great star hat for celebrating!

St Lucia Cake

Per the tradition in Sweden, families create pastries called lussekatter, which are served to the family by the oldest daughter.

We take the easier way out and made our homemade cinnamon rolls, shaped them into a St Lucia Cake, which we served up with a cream cheese glaze.

 

Books and Resources for St Lucia’s Day

This week, we’ll be looking for these books to read together.

 

How will you celebrate Saint Lucy’s day during this Advent season?

  1. Thank you for this simple St. Lucy craft for littles who need hand strength. Love it!

  2. Thank you for this post, St. Lucia is my favorite Saint! It was my grandmothers name and I took it as my Confirmation name 20 plus years ago.
