Our Saint Lineup--Edited
Sts. Agnes, Augustine, Ann, Bernadette, Cecilia, Clare, Dominic, Elizabeth Ann Seton, and Our Lady of the Rosary. I'm having so much fun painting these!
Edited to explain this project: With our Alphabet Path program this year, we study a saint each week, one for each letter. The lesson plans include ideas to create felt saints. But after seeing Jessica's Alphabet of Saints, I thought this would be a really fun project and something that the kids could play with for a long time. I bought the wooden peg people from Woodworks Ltd. who seemed to have the best prices, and are also located in Texas so I received them in one day!
I also loved this post where Jessica's children played with their saints in their Melissa & Doug wooden castle. I've considered getting rid of our various plastic dollhouses and getting something like this. But for now they like playing with the saints in the Little People house, and I'm having so much fun doing the painting!
Edit #2 with a better photo. Would you buy these if I took orders for special saints? They're 2.5 inches tall and still need a clear sealing (so they'll be a little shinier).
