The Luck of The Irish

Well, today being St. Patrick's Day I thought I would share what we did to celebrate here at our house.  We have 'School Day' with our friends on Tuesday mornings and because St. Patrick's Day was coming up, for our Bible lesson we learned about the real Patrick and what he did for God's kingdom.  If you don't know the story about St. Patrick it's pretty exciting: getting captured by Irish pirates as a kid, being a slave for many years, being shipwrecked....and of course sharing the love of God wherever he went.  It's a very entertaining story for kids to hear.

Later in the week we did shamrock paintings using bell peppers, we made some minty shamrock shakes and we also created our shamrock pictures you see below.

These pictures were fun and super easy to make.  I had the girls color with green marker over some sticker hole reinforcers.  Then they used those and put them in clusters of 3 on their paper.  Once they had a cluster they added a stem.  We also talked about most clovers or shamrocks have only 3 leaves but every so often you can find one that has 4 leaves and it's called a lucky shamrock because it doesn't happen very often.  The girl made one 'lucky' shamrock on their pictures.  See if you can find them.

Hope you guys have a great St. Patrick's Day! And don't forget to wear a little green!

God Bless!
