Welcome, readers! Cassondra has gone on a break, and has asked me, Saint Patrick, to write a post for her. She says “it’ll be easy for you to write suggestions of activities for St. Patrick’s Day, since it is you who inspired this holiday.” For this, that young lady is right!
There is nothing like a story to bring alive the imagination of a young child. Tell your young boys and girls that St. Patrick finds these books to be rather amusing!
- Jack and the Leprechaun
- The St. Patrick Day Shillelagh
- The Story of St. Patrick’s Day
- St. Patrick and the Three Brave Mice
- Mary McLean and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade
- The Leprechaun in the Basement
A saint I might be, but I am still a human being and that does not prevent me from being creative and doing crafts and activities. (Green paper is me favorite!)
- Rainbow Pots for Gold
- Color Coordinating (I wouldn’t worry about gluing them…just matching is fun!)
- Rainbow with Pot o’ gold for loved one
- Paper Leprechaun Hat
- Water Rainbow Experiment (I think this looks fun!)
I am positive that any of your young ladies and gentlemen will tell you that food is an importance matter to them. (Whether it be for growth or energy purposes). So I’ve picked some healthy and fun choices for your children to eat for this holiday. Did you know that they can make things green?
- Healthy Ideas
- Fun meals for all day
- Leprechaun Hat S’mores
- St. Patrick’s Day Blondies
- Die-Free St. Patrick’s Day Food Ideas
Like I’ve said before, I took you down this lovely rainbow trail, only to bring you to a pot of gold…a short biography!
I was born into a wealthy, English family, sometime in the late 300′s. Early in my life, I was kidnapped, sold as a slave, and taken to Ireland. When I was doing my job of tending sheep that ’the love of God and His fear came to me more and more, and my faith was strengthened.’ Years later, I escaped and went back to my country and lived at a monastery. It was soon after that I felt God was telling me to go back to Ireland and be a missionary…so, that is what I did. To this day, I am known as the patron saint of Ireland. I converted many thousands of Irish to the Christian faith, even those of great wealth and royalty!
Wasn’t that so kind of Saint Patrick to write something for me? (Okay, I just wanted to add a new element of fun)
What was your favorite thing I listed?
