St. Patrick’s Day Fun
By Angela Billings

Have a little “green” fun with the following activities.

Make Irish Toast – Simply get a piece of sliced bread and
paint
shamrocks on it using a new, clean small tipped paintbrush
and water mixed with green food coloring. Then pop it in the
toaster and serve when lightly browned.

Make Shamrock Pancakes – Use a heart cookie cutter and cut 3
hearts out of the cooked pancake and form in a shamrock
shape.

Make construction paper shamrocks – Cut 3 heart shapes out
and arrange them in the shamrock shape and glue on
construction paper. It is said that St Patrick used the
three-leafed shamrock to explain the concept of the Trinity;
which refers to the combination of God the Father, God the
Son, and God the Holy Spirit. This is said to be one reason
for the strong association with St. Patrick’s day and
name.

Make Leprechaun Traps -give the children boxes, string,
ribbons, tape, glue, sticks, wood and other craft materials
to help them make a leprechaun trap have children set the
traps before going to bed, then while they are sleeping you
can leave gold wrapped chocolate coins or something else
special in each child’s trap.

Blarney Stones – Let kids get smooth rocks from outside and
bring in and wash them and dry. Then let them paint on glue
with a paintbrush and then roll in gold glitter.

Don’t forget to wear green!
