The children chose their saints that they wanted to dress up as and we found the saints in our Book of Saints Series and I found this site for great Saint colouring pictures that we choose a few from.
I also read Father Phillip Tells a Ghost Story
I made up a couple of word searches from an online word generator because our children love them.
I made a harder one for the older kids, being Vellvin and Rogan, because Saxon and Eden were at work.
Then I made a simpler one for Moran, Myffwyn and Corbyn.
We used Jessica's Saint Bingo and Saint Cards for a go fish game that we played after dinner.
We also printed the Scavanger Hunt too, which we just filled in the blanks for
Surprisingly we did not have any special themed food for this day and I don't think it was missed.
We were invited to a group All Saints Day but our car had not had the seats put back in so we couldn't go.
I'm sure the children did enjoy our day though and the dressing is a MAJOR part of the fun for us.
However getting a group shot was like an impossibility.
Now on to our saints-
I got very confused as she was going to be St Agnes with her lamb then she was St Bernadette and I missed the significance of her kneeling near the Roses with a Rosary. Thank you Vellvin for setting her up like this.
We have only done this once before and they children really loved it.
I know the children would have loved to make more with different patterns but they are frightfully expensive here.
We did keep the seeds so hopefully we might be able to grow some for next year.
I just love Pumpkin Moonshine as a sweet book on the family traditions of the day.
Did I mention how much our kids like wordsearches?
I must admit this was a lot later than we wanted to play the games
Which munchkin could it be.
I don't want the party to end!!
Blessed All Saints Day to You!!
Blessings to you and your homes,
