Moving on to All Saints Day and found a cute idea I'd like to share. The original is to make a party using various candies to represent the saints. Don't have the time for that so we will be doing a list of saints to be matched with the possible candies. At the end, the children will be rewarded with a bag of the candies mentioned.
Saints Garbiel, Raphael, and Michael are all angels.
St. Matthew was a tax collector and handled money.
St. Florian is the paton saint of firefighters.
St. Francis loved animals.
St. Nicolas is all about Christmas.
St. Helen was a queen and mother of an emperor.
St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland.
Saints Peter, Andrew, James and John were fishermen.
St. Appolinia is patron saint of dentists
St. Lucy is patron saint of eye doctors.
St. Valentine is patron saint of the engaged and friendship
Blessed Miguel Pro, martyr, loved chocolate
gummy snakes, Animal Crackers, Atomic fire balls,
gummy rings, Googly Eyes, angel food
Million Dollar Mints, Swedish fish, teeth
Milky Way, candy hearts, candy canes
They write the name of the candy next to the sentence about the saint. The one who finishes first wins.
The teeth are actually donations from a local dentist's from his waiting room treasure box for young patients.
