Today we celebrated the feast day of Saint Bridgid of Ireland as a preparation for Candlemas tomorrow. We read the story "St. Bridget and the King's Wolf" and each of us made a Brigid's Cross out of pipe cleaners. The one in the picture is made from waxed string called "Bendaroos." Tomorrow we will make butter and Apple Crepes to celebrate.
Below is a picture of our chalkboard drawing for this week. We will celebrate Saint Bridgid's Feast Day, Candlemas and Groundhog day with lots of fun crafts, stories and baking. Tomorrow we will roll beeswax
candles and then make a small clay candle holder the next day. On Thursday we will make a felt groundhog peeking out of the ground.
