St. Patrick's Day...

St. Patrick's day is not a holiday we really celebrate.  I think the only thing I remember about it growing up was that it was close to my birthday and that I needed to remember to wear green so I didn't get pinched.  :0)

We don't believe in luck, leprechauns, and many of the other items associated with St. Patrick's day. We believe that God is sovereign and that He has a purpose and plan for every person on this earth.  Despite those things, St. Patrick's day can be used to teach our children about Ireland, their customs, geography, and people.  

That being said, here are some cute ideas I ran across and wanted to share with you.

Momma's are always looking for healthy snacks! Check out this St. Patrick's Day Fondue  from Clean and Scentsible.

A big thanks to The Girl Creative who came up with this great printable of an Old Irish Blessing.

Burlap is all the rage these days!  Here are some cute St. Patrick's day Shamrock Treat Bags created by Abbey over at The Cards We Drew.

My kids love this cereal, so even though we don't believe in luck, I still had to share it.  Soo cute! Lucky Charm Printable by Create, Craft, Love

Thanks to Reasons to Skip the Housework for this free printable for some pretty amazing bead art!

For those of you looking for something of Irish culture, Ashely over at Simply Designing, shared her recipe for Irish Soda Bread.  This would be a perfect complement to any St. Patrick's day meal.

And to finish off your meal, here are 25 St. Patrick's Day Treats put together by Jenny over at the NY Melrose Family.

Thanks Ladies!!
