Absolutely No Pinching!

A Wish for a Friend

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

This is an Irish blessing we read with part of our holiday unit study of Saint Patrick’s Day.  This poem and other Irish blessings, as well as everything else Irish can be found here:

We are using free printables for notebooking, lapbooking, and fun.

Here’s a link for that:

These two quotes from St. Patrick are going to look great in the lapbook:

We made these shamrock treats!  Hershey Kiss, Green M&M’s, and Pretzels – Bake at 275 Degrees for just a couple of minutes until the Kiss has melted.

We have a few new rules during this study:  must wear green, Irish accents and phrases are mandatory, if anyone finds a pot-o-gold they must share with Mom, and ABSOLUTELY NO PINCHING!

Last but not least, a brief history video on St. Patrick from Veggie Tales
