Recently, I painted our family members using the same little wooden dolls I paint for the Wooden Painted Saints. The kids have been enjoying playing with the whole collection of saints and family members and we have found them in various predicaments…in every corner of the house.
So far, we have painted 23 Saints and 10 family members…and we have found lots of ways to play with them!
Adam likes to host a “Meet and Greet” in his Fisher Price castle. He also likes to see how well he can stuff all 33 saints and family members in the dungeon.
Recently, I made a Passion Play out of an Egg Carton, starring the Wooden Painted Saints…and even a couple of our family members. Jesus, Mother Mary and the Apostles parade through the little egg cups through the Stations of the Cross and the Sorrowful Mysteries. The other saints (and family members!) are great extras to fill out the crowd. I added 2 soldiers and Pontius Pilate to round out the scenes.
The Wooden Painted Saints are a great size for Monopoly game pieces too!
The Wooden Painted Saints cheer up any Feast Day celebration…
…and offer perfect counters for practicing the piano!
