Perfect! Now I had to come up with ideas for snacks. I enlisted the help of the older girls...it was perfect, too.
First, we played a couple rounds of "SAINT." I downloaded Jessica's Saint Bingo cards from here. They were such a fun treat for the kids. I would randomly choose a saint from our Saint's Picture Book and tell a fun fact about that saint. They were very interested and would remind me when I would forget to tell them a fun fact.
Next, we moved into the dining room where a special table of treats awaited the children. We had the following menu:
Blessed are the Poor in Spirit - Dove Chocolates
Blessed are they who Mourn - Tear Tea (Apple Cider)
Blessed are those are Meek - Brownies (A Patch of Dirt)
Blessed are they who Hunger & Thirst - Pretzels & tiny cups of Water
Blessed are the Clean of Heart - Strawberry Hearts & Napkins
Blessed are the Peacemakers - Ritz Crackers with a Peace Sign made with Easy Cheese
Blessed are the Persecuted - Ropes and Chains (Red Vines tied in Knots)
Blessed are the Merciful - Untying the Knots in the Red Vines
Happy Feast of All Saints!
