Little Flower Cookies For St. Therese

So St. Thereses’ feast day is October 1, HOWEVER… her canonization day is May 17.

Personally, we already have a lot of Liturgical celebrations that are important to us during October such as the feast of the guardian angels, archangels, St. Francis, St. Faustina, Our Lady of the Rosary, St. Pope JPII,  and the approachement of All Saints’ Day. So St. Therese falls at a busy time of year.

My thought was, since there’s so much cute flower stuff at Spring time, and her nickname is the “Little Flower”… why not celebrate her canonization day? That would also help to continue to celebrating during the Easter season with Catholic kids! These little flower cookies are festive and EASY which in my opinion, makes them perfect. 🙂

“I understood that every flower created by Him is beautiful, that the brilliance of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not lessen the perfume of the violet or the sweet simplicity of the daisy. I understood that if all the lowly flowers wished to be roses, nature would no longer be enameled with lovely hues. And so it is in the world of souls, Our lord’s living garden.”
― St. Thérèse de Lisieux

Supplies Needed:

  • flower shaped butter cookies
  • old fashioned gumdrops

There is a perfect Science to putting these together- you have to push the cookie onto the gumdrop enough to get the flower cookie to stick on, but not hard enough that the cookie cracks and breaks. Kids actually love to do this.

It takes your flower shaped cookies from ordinary, to a colorful garden! 🙂
