In the folklore of the Netherlands, Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas) is a yearly feast on the evening of December 5th. Sinterklaas celebrates his birthday by distributing presents to all good children. Half November Saint Nicholas comes with is steam boat out of Spain to Holland. With his helpers, a lot of Black Pete's, he visits schools, hospitals, stores ands families.
This lesson is about Sinterklaas, but can be done with Santa too, or any other person with a recognizable silhouette.
Fold the black sheet and draw an oval as great as possible. Use this oval to draw a decorated frame. Cut this. Draw a silhouette against the fold of the resting piece of black paper, and cut it. Paste kite paper behind the fram, paste the silhouette in the middle of it.

  1. Very pretty project! Can you explain what 'kite paper' is? Is it transluscent paper like tissue paper?

  2. Yes, but it's not that soft and smoothj as tissue paper. I actually didn't know the English name, and used the Google translator! Pictures of kite paper in Google proved it was the right translation.
