Six Geese A-Laying...

During Vespers on Saturday Night
On the Sixth Day of Christmas we remember Saint Melania of Rome

1.  Read (or retell) pages 26 and 27 in Celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas

2.  Visit someone that is sick or in need *

3.  Make up a batch of Peppermint Play Dough (we add peppermint extract and glitter to make it sparkly) for your little ones to enjoy

4.  Make Peppermint Milkshakes... Or take the family out to get them (we really like Chick-fil-a's!)

5. Collect the ingredients that you will need to bake a Vasilopita Bread (there is a recipe included in 
Celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas, but here is one from An Orthodox Kitchen


Using Celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas  as a framework, I am going to plan little activities and readings for the Twelve Days of Christmas.  Because of family obligations (we have two family parties back-to-back these next two days) and church events (Metropolitan Tikhon is visiting our parish this coming weekend!), we will not get to everything.  However, it will  be nice to refer to these Christmas Learning Baskets in future years.  Also, I would love to hear your suggestions for things to add...  this is a work in progress!
