Patrick was an amazing guy and it is a shame to spend March 17th in a drunken revelry. I cringe at goofy, irreverent, and downright shameful ways people celebrate this day. But what should you do on St. Patrick’s day?
- Read the story of St. Patrick. There are a number of tellings. Here is an interesting one for older kids. Here is a brief version for youngsters.
- I love this article’s ideas about reading and praying St. Patrick’s famous prayer, and praying for an unreached people group. Patrick was an evangelist, so focus on evangelism for the day.
- St. Patrick’s Day is a good day to delve into a brief history of Ireland. This timeline is helpful.
- Watch Veggie Tales brief intro on Patrick! It is on their “Sumo of the Opera” DVD, YouTube, or the link above. I like that link because it includes study questions.
- You want a recipe, don’t you? Fine, here you go: Sugar and Cloth’s Lucky Charms’ treats.
