Looking for a way to tell your children about the reason behind why we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
The Real Reason for St. Patrick’s Day
Besides being a fun reason to wear green and pinch those who don’t, it is a celebration of a man of God who sacrificed all for the sake of the gospel. Hands down, the best book for telling the true story of St. Patrick’s Day is The Story of St. Patrick: More Than Shamrocks and Leprechauns.
This is a great book to read for family worship time together, as it will certainly bring up some good conversations about a heart for the lost, and sacrifice for the sake of others and their salvation.
Highly recommend this book! You can read more about The Story of St. Patrick book in last year’s post.
Fun Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day
We had all sorts of fun with the color GREEN last year! A quick trip to The Dollar Store and we were set with fun accessories! We ate pistachio pudding (yummie!) and green macaroni and cheese (just add green dye to the water when you boil the noodles.)
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
