St. Patrick’s Day is coming up SOON! This is one my favorite months of the year. My family were all IRISH! And my mom was an Irish Catholic. We REALLY celebrated St. Patrick’s Day every year. I remember dinners where she would actually give us kids a bit of wine with 7 up to toast to some of her favorite SAINTS. Those are happy memories of sitting in the formal dining room with my 5 siblings cracking jokes and eating yummy food. I love St. Patrick’s DAY!
I don’t have very many decorations for it but I always do at least my entry table and my dining room table in honor of my mother and her love of St. Patrick’s Day. I also decorate my classroom in Shamrocks, leprechauns and GREEN, glittery stuff and of course GOLD wrapped chocolates!
So in honor of the Saints all over the world who are do gooders for others I’d cut out a bunch of Shamrocks in Green and add some ROLO candies or Golden Hersheys’s Kisses and write all the songs behind shamrocks.
Use a few St. Patrick’s Day decorations to have a LUCKY singing time.
Then come up with some fun questions to ask and the correct answers get a piece of “gold” from your POT OF GOLD (a black container with gold wrapped candy inside). The kids will love it!
