St Patrick’s Day

St Patrick’s Day

St Patrick ’s Day is a fabulous holiday to celebrate with the little ones.  My main focus during our St. Patrick’s Day festivities is what in our own lives makes us feel lucky or blessed. After reading a story about a leprechaun who forgot to count his blessings we took the time to close our eyes and really think about what is the “gold” in our lives. The kids had some super sweet (and silly) responses. We also learned about the History of Saint Patrick and his influence in Ireland. The kids were very interested in Saint Patrick “driving out all the snakes.” We also went over the history of how Saint Patrick’s Day has been celebrated. We created a big spider graph and shared the details that we learned throughout the week.

We also learned a fun little song to - to the tune of I'm a Little Teapot:

I'm a little leprechaun dressed in green
the tiniest man that you've ever seen.
If you ever catch me so it's told
I'll give you my pot of Gold!

Here is a look at the fun crafts we made during our St. Patrick's day celebrations:
