St. Nicholas Kits
for St. Nicholas Day

Help families celebrate St. Nicholas Day by making St. Nicholas kits. Kits may be distributed after church or at an event before St. Nicholas Day, perhaps as part of a breakfast with St. Nicholas. They may be provided complete, or as a basic kit with additional items to be added.

Kits could be offered as part of a fund-raiser supporting a seasonal benevolence, such as the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, or another organization serving children.


• Paper bags, lunch sacks or white bakery sacks
• St. Nicholas stickers (print your own here or others in our shop (sample uses 3 5/16-inch stickers)
• Labels for the bags (see below)
• Chocolate Santa to make into St. Nicholas (directions & patterns)
     Miter for chocolate Santa      
     Metalic gold chenile stem for Chocolate Santa's crozier 
• Clementine or orange, representing the dowry gold
• Candy cane, representing St. Nicholas' bishop's crozier
• 3 gold chocolate coins, representing the dowry gold
• Booklet with St. Nicholas stories

Kits may be pre-assembled or adults may put them together, choosing additional items to supplement the basic kit.
