St. Patrick's Day -- It's a Shamrock -- It's the Trinity -- It's a Craft

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Jessica at Shower of Roses shared a fantastic craft for St. Patrick's Day.  The story of St. Patrick includes a story about him picking a shamrock and using it to explain the Holy Trinity to the people of Ireland.  On this day it's fun to celebrate with Lucky Charms cereal and green beer (not at the same time, of course), but it's also a great day to reinforce the Glory Be to the Father prayer.

Using Jessica's tutorial and printable, we made the Holy Trinity craft and talked about St. Patrick's life -- the snakes, shamrocks, pirates, pagans, conversions, Holy Trinity, red hair, leprechauns, pots of gold.  You see we often get carried away and end up on some Irish tangent that pertains nothing to St. Patrick's life.

I'll cut the rambling and show you our craft.

A book we don't own, but have checked out from the library so many times, it seems like we own it.

Green Beer?  Nay? Yea?
