Make a simple St. Nicholas! The cutting is a little fiddly, so this really isn't for young children.

Materials & Equipment

  • Print PDF pattern for each person
  • Markers, crayons or colored pencils
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick or roll-on dry adhesive


  • Color pattern pieces as desired
  • Cut pieces out (it may be easier to cut through the hair to cut out face space, as it doesn't matter when the piece is glued down)
  • Glue pieces onto body: cloak first, beard next, then miter
  • Draw eyes and nose on face
