Interactive St. Nicholas Storytelling
Encourage audience participation using signs!
Make large "YAY!" and "BOO!" signs. Two youth, or other helpers, hold the signs. St. Nicholas, or another storyteller, tells the St. Nicholas' story.
When something good happens, the "YAY!" sign is held up and everyone cheers.
When something bad happens, the "BOO!" sign is held up and everyone boos.
Idea from St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church, Tulsa, Oklahoma.
