St. Patrick’s Day Lessons Your Kids Will Love
I have searched the web for St. Patrick’s Day lessons that our kids can really get into. A great place to start your lessons is with this collection from history.com
This first one answers the question, Who Was St. Patrick?
St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is one of Christianity’s most widely known figures. But for all his celebrity, his life remains somewhat of a mystery. Many of the stories traditionally associated with St. Patrick, including the famous account of his banishing all the snakes from Ireland, are false, the products of hundreds of years of exaggerated storytelling.
This second one covers the historical aspects and facts about St. Parick’s Day but also everyone’s favorite traditions and much more.
St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday known for parades, shamrocks and all things Irish. From leprechauns to the color green, find out how symbols we now associate with St. Patrick’s Day came to be, and learn about a few that are purely American invention.
Once they have the facts, here is a fun trivia game to play with them.
This year on St. Patrick’s Day I’ll be in San Francisco…and Dallas…and Cedar Rapids, Iowa…and, finally, home. I hope to get home around 1 a.m. if all the flights are on time, thanks to a miles ticket to get me from my mom’s house (where I’ve been helping her sort and pack to get her house ready to sell) to home.
You could offer the winner of the Trivia Game their own bag of Rainbow Seeds (Skittles)!
