Now for the lesson and craft……


Read out loud:

“There are myths and fairytales surrounding St. Patrick’s Day about being lucky and capturing a leprechaun’s pot of gold. Do you know you can have a treasure even more valuable then a pot of gold?

God’s Word tells us in Proverbs 16:16: “How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!”

We can think of God’s wisdom like a pot of gold. Every time we read the Bible we grow in wisdom and add another “gold” coin to our pot.”

St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the people of Ireland about the Holy Trinity: 3 in 1. God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 

Today we’re going to make a shamrock craft to remind us that God is three persons in one:

**I used Mod Podge and a paint brush to apply the glitter when preparing to teach a class, but for younger children glue sticks work just as well and are less messy! (You’ll already have enough glitter to clean up you don’t need a glue mess too, right? lol)

Apply glue on the leaves and stem:
