St.Patrick's Day Crafts


I love St. Patrick's Day, because I'm 1/4 Irish, and I love Jesus! Here are some fun things I found digging for ideas to use with my preschool-aged girls for this week. Enjoy!
~
A great poem
First is God the Father, Then Jesus, His only Son. With the Holy Spirit, 
Together, they are Three In One.
(don't know where I came across this originally, sorry!)

Trinity song from ABC Jesus loves me:
 (Tune of "Are you Sleeping?")
God the Father, God the Father 
God the Son, God the Son
God the Holy Spirit, God the Holy Spirit
Three in One, Three in One.

Crafolic.com has some fun Trinity and St. Patrick art ideas:
(bell pepper prints)
also, a free shamrock Trinity printable:

Why the clover?According to DLTKSaint Patrick used a shamrock to explain about God.  The shamrock, which looks like clover, has three leaves on each stem.  Saint Patrick told the people that the shamrock was like the idea of the Trinity – that in the one God there are three divine beings:  the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  


Super cute handprint craft from B.inspired.mama!
