My 12-year-old daughter, Rosie, paints little peg saints all year long, usually on their feast days, but occasionally when she reads about one that intrigues her, or when I tell her I would like a peg-statue of one saint in particular.

Since she's been doing this for a number of years now, I have quite a lot of these little peg saints, and we put them all on display for the great feast day of All Saints!

Happy all saints day.

Happy All Saints Day!

I also use cards from a collection called Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives. to display underneath my clear plastic table cloth. Old holy cards or other pictures you can find and save also work very well.



For us I put them on the table cloth and cover them with a plastic covering, that way the kids can talk about them during meals. I also put up some of the children's other holiday art including pumpkins and spiders!

All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day and All Souls Day are a wonderful Christian time of the year. With a little thought and creativity it can make wonderful memories for families and provide our children with more education about their Catholic faith and Christian heritage as well as deepening their faith.
