Celebrating Saint Patrick's Day: Books~DVD~Sweet Treats~Green Eggs~Craft

This post contains affiliate links.

We had a simple celebration on March 17 to remember Saint Patrick, the most popular Saint in Ireland.  Did you know that St. Patrick was a mentor to Saint Brigid of Ireland? Be sure to read Here's 31 Things You Didn't Know About Saint Brigid of Ireland and 3 Simple Ways to Celebrate St. Brigid of Ireland's Feast Day: February 1 to find out more about this well-known female Saint in Ireland who lead an interesting and inspiring life as well. 

Before I tell a little more about our St. Patrick's Day this year, I thought I'd share this photo taken on March 16 to celebrate my husband's birthday.  My husband has a fraternal twin brother and I have shared a "twin photo" on past blog posts.  It was a busy day with a soccer game, soccer practice and gymnastics, but we managed to squeeze in a little celebration at Chick-fil-A and we had cupcakes.

Saint Patrick's Day morning I set out this little display on our kitchen table.

The opened book in the center is a page about Saint Patrick that I read during our Couch Catechism prayer time.  The book is titled Saints and Angels.


We also recently enjoyed reading out loud Chime Travelers: The Secret of the Shamrock.  Such a fun book about 2 children going back in time to spend some adventures with Saint Patrick! 


Also on the table was a Saint Patrick statue and the Saint Patrick Shining Light Doll

After we read about Saint Patrick, I made some green eggs using the Green Eggs Chemistry Experiment we used last year for the first time.  They tasted better than they smelled and looked as my daughter held her nose stirring the water dyed with red cabbage and the egg whites. Ha! 

Then we did a fun printable Trinity Shamrock Craft from Catholic Icing.  Easy and fun and meaningful!
