We try to have a very small, humble St. Martin celebration.
We made and lit some lanterns. These are just mason jars with colored tissue paper glued to it. Makes a beautiful stained glass effect once lit.
For a treat we made Martinshörnchen (St. Martin's Croissants). Croissants are a semi-circle to remind us of the cloak he cut in half to save a beggar from the cold. There is a traditional recipe here: martinshornchen recipe. I used a can of crescent rolls because they are egg and dairy free that way. I just brushed them with dairy free margarine and sprinkled some sugar before rolling them up. Then brushed the tops with more margarine and a little sugar. So easy and quite yummy!
And some simple St. Martin pictures to color in. You can find the free printable here
