St Patrick's Day Family Fun

In our home, we try to make as many moments as we can-  teachable moments! From a Disney princess to the celebration of St Patrick's Day, my husband and I make a point to use what we can in the world to teach our children about who they are in Christ and who God created them to be. With St. Patrick's day coming next week, I am excited to share some fun ideas that my family loves to do to celebrate.

St Patrick's Day 

St. Patrick's Day 

Go outside and find some 3 leaf clovers. Uses these to talk about God (3 in 1). God is God but the Bible teaches us that he shows himself to us in 3 different forms: God, Holy Spirit, and Jesus. Whenever we see a 3 leaf clover we can remember just how amazing our God is!
St Patrick's Day
  • Who is St Patrick and why should we celebrate: Saint Patrick had an adventurous life. He was captured by pirates at the age of 16. After six years being a slave to the pirates, Patrick decided to follow Jesus. He escaped and decided to become a Monk and later a missionary. Patrick loved Jesus so much that he decided to move to Ireland and teach everyone about Jesus for  29 years. He used the shamrock, a 3 leaf clover, (Ireland's national flower) to explain the Blessed Trinity. St. Patrick founded 365 churches, baptized over 120,000 people and consecrated 450 bishops. Wow!
  • Talk about it: Even when Patrick was sad and being treated mean as a slave to the pirates, God was there. Patrick knew God was there and decided to devote the rest of his life to Him. St Patrick knew that Jesus was his best friend forever and wanted everyone to know Jesus too. We can be just like St Patrick! What are some ways that you can be like St Patrick?
  • Get out the Chalk! Play the game above but instead of coloring the clover have children HOP to the number rolled.
