6 Activities for St. Patrick’s Day

PatricksI'll admit, I was hesitant at first. But the more I look at Pinterest, the more I'm liking it. There are tons of cool ideas out there! With St. Patrick's Day coming up, I thought I would see what cool crafts and awesome activities people are coming up with and sharing.

One thing I have heard from a lot of people: once you start looking at Pinterest, it's hard to stop. So to save you the hours you would normally spend looking through hundreds of ideas, I've narrowed down the list for you. Here are seven great St. Patrick's Day ideas from Pinterest that you can use in your ministry.

  1. Bulletin -boardBulletin Board Idea: Check out this colorful bulletin board from Happy Home Fairy. The person behind the idea and website is an associate children's ministry director. Using Deuteronomy 7:6, this board will remind all those who walk by that they're God's treasure.
     
     
  2. TrinityTrinity Talkers: The story goes that St. Patrick taught others about the trinity using the three-leaf shamrocks found all around Ireland. Here are two ideas that I found while searching Pinterest that put a crafty spin on St. Patrick's trinity lesson.

     
  3. HatPaper Plate Hats: These holiday hats from alphamom are adorable and affordable. Just some quick snips with a pair of scissors, decorate, and you're done. Plus, the shamrock hat is a perfect addition to the trinity story we just talked about.

     
  4. ServiceSneaky Service: Leprechauns are sneaky, and so is this cool service project. Kids do something nice in secret for someone and leave behind a token encouraging them to pay it forward. You can also change the text of the poem to reflect more on why God wants us to serve others.
     
  5. BlessignsCount Your Blessings: During St. Patrick's Day, there's a lot of talk about luck. Although we try to stay away from the idea of talking about luck, I think we can all agree we are lucky to have such a great God. This craft will get your kids thinking about all the ways they're lucky to be blessed.
     
  6. 4leafHand Crafted: A four-leaf clover is a rare thing to find. It's very unique, just like the way God made us. This craft will create a special four-leaf clover that parents will want to keep forever, hands-down.

I have read a bit about St. Patrick's day but we do not recognize it in my zone. However, it is great to know that there are some good things we can teach our children about it.

hello, your knowledge of St.Patrick is abysmal! There is so much about the saint that could be taught to youngsters yet you persist in this sillyness! Like the sillyness too but let's have some real faith content. Read Patrick's confession.Continued blessings, Jane
