Saint Ambrose Feast Day Celebration Ideas (Fun For Catholic Kids!)

St. Ambrose’s feast day is coming up. Here’s a compilation of ideas for his feast day celebration! 🙂 We love to celebrate the Saint feast days during Advent at our house, and this is the perfect one to include! Because he was said to be the “honey-tongued Saint”, anything including honey or bees is the perfect way to celebrate St. Ambrose’s feast day! He is also the patron Saint of candle makers, so candle crafts or activities could be perfect as well. Bonus points for making a candle craft that involves bee’s wax! 😉
