Today, our Catholic Mosaic study lead us to read A Saint and His Lion: The Story of Telka of Ethiopia. The kids all loved the story, and were especially intrigued by the lion that St. Telka befriended.
After coloring their stained glass pictures, from the Catholic Mosaic Coloring companion-Fenestrae Fedei, of St. Telka and His Lion, the kids made these darling paper bag lions, or rather, "Anbassa" puppets from Martha Stewart's website.
Then they headed back outside, to rake leaves with daddy and enjoy more of this BEAUTIFUL fall weather we have been having, while I made dinner.
As we were finishing up the lion puppet I hear Twinkle Toes say to Chiquita,"I'm scared of lions cause they will bite me... their suppose to bite me, Right? But daddy will save me cause he has a gun." Poor thing!! Why would she even have to worry about lions!
The kids will paste their coloring pages into their Liturgical Notebooks on Monday and add a bit of copywork, but here is a picture anyways.
St. Telka of Ethiopia - Pray for us!
