Saint Patrick's Day: 2016

This post contains affiliate links.

I'm catching up with blog posts these days, though I do post on my blog's Facebook page, Instagram, and Twitter more regularly.  This post is a quick one about how we celebrated Saint Patrick's Day this year.  I'll then add this post to my A Slice of Liturgical Life page for my own reference and for anyone who may be interested in reading how we have celebrated the liturgical year. 

In the morning, I had this displayed on our kitchen table:  Books about Saint Patrick, CCC of America DVD, Patrick Brave Shepherd of the Emerald Isle and pretzel treats that can be made year round.  We read about this well-known and beloved Saint and ate our shamrock pretzel treats during the day.  We also went to story time at the library where my 2 year old walked around with her cute shamrock headband. :)

Around lunch time, we made some green eggs, but we didn't use green food dye to make them green!  We dyed them with red cabbage of all things.  I found this fun Green Eggs Chemistry Experiment  and decided to give it a try.  Cool experiment! 

The day before Saint Patrick's Day, we made this fun printable craft inspired by Jessica at Shower of Roses.  It was a great and simple craft to do and I love that my 8 year old wanted to make hers with "stain-glass". :) 

Saint Patrick, pray for us!
