St. Nicholas Shoes

Today I am making St. Nick shoes with Claire. We will leave them "outside" aka in the garage since it's a little windy out...and St. Nick will come and put some goodies in them tonight while she's sleeping! Here's the pattern... It's super easy. Have them color/decorate it while flat, then put it together.

I always did these with my German students when I was teaching, and it was huge hit. St. Nick usually brings lots of little things like pieces of candy, but I also found some totally plastic scissors and some water colors that "St. Nick" will be leaving Claire as well.

Too cute! What a neat tradition to start. Where did you find all plastic scissors? Nathan is obsessed with my scissors and I'd love to get him some of his own.
