Storytime

Father Steve Wilson from Grace Episcopal Church visited the preschool, telling the children about St. Nicholas. In this version a bad man put nasty things into his sausage machine to make more money. To illustrate the story, the kids stood in a row, linking elbows, and making machine sound effects. Then St. Nicholas came and stopped the man from being so greedy. They talked about what is more important than being greedy, such as family and friends.
