I know it's last minute, but I wanted to quickly share the 18 NEW All Saints Guessing Jar Labels that I came up with and made for this year! I think that puts it up to about 80 options between these and all the others that can be found in the archives over the years.
Here is the link to all of my FREE All Saints Party Printables!
I have way too much fun trying to connect saints with treats! During my usual grocery shopping trips during October I wander the snacks and candy isles trying to come up with new ideas.
St. Olcese: "Legend says that a bear once killed one of a pair of oxen that were pulling a cart of building materials for St. Olcese. The bear then turned to attack Olcese, but the saint blessed the bear, made the sign of the cross over it, and the animal took the place of the ox it had just killed. The bear and the remaining ox then hauled the materials to the site where Olcese used them to build a church."
I've used the Pink & White Flower Cookies for St. Therese The Little Flower, but they also work for St. Rose, Patron of Florists! The Fleur de Sel Caramels that we've used for St. Joan of Arc also work for St. Dennis of Paris, Patron of France.
Instead of reusing the Cat Cookies for St. Jerome or St. Gertrude of Nivelles, Patron of Cats, I made up a label featuring St. Mark the Evangelist and The Lion of St. Mark.
The Welsh antiquarian Thomas Pennant (1726–1798) related the story of Melangell:
When trying to come up with an idea for St. John the Evangelist, I thought that Candy Corn sort of resemble Eagle's Talons, so I went with that for his jar.
I also added a label for St. Apollonia (not pictured) which would be fun to include filled with ZolliPops The Clean Teeth Lollipop!
A couple of the labels are repeats, but with different items inside. This time I filled the jar for St. Drogo with Espresso Beans, and I included St. Maria, wife of St. Isidore, on the jar filled with Autumn Mix for these patrons of farmers.
