The Beheading of St John the Baptist.

This is tomorrow's Feast Day. It is also the anniversary of Anthony's First Holy Communion Day. Anthony made his FHC on this day, four years ago, when we were living in Adelaide.

This morning, we read about St Augustine ( today's Saint) and about tomorrow's remembrance of Herodius and how she connived to have John the Baptist beheaded.

Anthony had the idea of copying a craft from his book, the Horrible Histories Annual 2007.

The craft ? Creating a severed head.

A gruesome craft, but one that certainly fits this Feast. A gruesome craft that is right up my sons' alley!

I love this!

What a fun craft - and one that will make heads roll! LOL!
