Storytime with St. Nicholas and Christmas Stocking Craft

 Registration is closed for this event
St. Nicholas will visit us virtually and read a story, live! Children will be making a Christmas stocking for St. Nicholas to fill with gifts as he continues his travels around the world.

Join a very special guest for a special Christmas-themed workshop—St. Nicholas will be visiting the Ukrainian History and Education Center virtually in December! St. Nicholas will be reading a story about the Christmas season. After St. Nicholas’ visit, participants will learn to make and decorate a Christmas stocking.

Suitable for grade school aged children. 

Storytime by St. Nicholas. Craft taught by Oksana Pasakas, UHEC Education Programs Coordinator.
