Baptism of the Lord Ideas- Jan 10

The Baptism of the Lord is coming up on January 10. Some of the symbols of this day are water and shells. Here are some ideas to celebrate this feast day.

This is also the first Luminous Mystery of the Rosary.

By Sun and Candlelight made this baptism craft.
Here are more directions on how to make
a candle in a shell.
If you're not up to melting wax, you can
just drop a votive into a shell.
Our Domestic Church had a fantastic
idea to fill their advent wreath with the
family's baptism candles! Check it out!
I also loved this baptism coloring page.
Sweetness & Light made this delightful
cake with shells on top.
For dinner, try serving ricotta stuffed
jumbo shells. Get the recipe here.
