I'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
- Bulletin 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
- Trinity 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.
- Paper 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.
- Sneaky 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.
- Count 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.
- Hand 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.
