There was once an old widower who had three daughters. They were quite poor and while the daughters had come of age to be married, the father had no money for dowries. One night, the three girls had washed their clothing and hung their stockings by the fire place to dry. It so happens that St. Nicholas was visiting their area that evening and when he discovered the plight of the three daughters, he placed a bag of gold into each one’s stocking.
Another very simple craft to do with your kiddos. Cut red and white felt into the shape of a Christmas stocking and topper. Decorate with glitter – add a name or let your imagination run wild. Attach a ribbon hanger.
