One thing I have heard from a lot of people:
once you start looking at Pinterest, it’s hard to stop. So to save
you the hours you would normally spend looking through hundreds of
ideas, I’ve narrowed down the list for you. Here are seven great
St. Patrick’s Day ideas from Pinterest that you can use in your
ministry.

  1. Bulletin -board class="MsoNormal">Bulletin Board Idea: Check out this colorful bulletin board from Happy Home
    Fairy. The person behind the idea and website is an associate
    children’s ministry director. Using Deuteronomy 7:6, this board
    will remind all those who walk by that they’re God’s
    treasure.
     
     
  2. TrinityTrinity Talkers: The
    story goes that St. Patrick taught others about the trinity using
    the three-leaf shamrocks found all around Ireland. Here are two ideas that I found while searching Pinterest
    that put a crafty spin on St. Patrick’s trinity lesson.

    Hats
    :
    These holiday hats from alphamom are adorable and affordable. Just
    some quick snips with a pair of scissors, decorate, and you’re
    done. Plus, the shamrock hat is a perfect addition to the trinity
    story we just talked about.

  4. ServiceSneaky Service:
    Leprechauns are sneaky, and so is this cool service project. Kids do something
    nice in secret for someone and leave behind a token encouraging
    them to pay it forward. You can also change the text of the poem to
    reflect more on why God wants us to serve others.
     
  5. BlessignsCount Your Blessings:
    During St. Patrick’s Day, there’s a lot of talk about luck.
    Although we try to stay away from the idea of talking about luck, I
    think we can all agree we are lucky to have such a great God. This
    craft will get your kids thinking about all
    the ways they’re lucky to be blessed.
     
  6. 4leafHand Crafted: A four-leaf clover is a
    rare thing to find. It’s very unique, just like the way God made
    us. This craft will create a special four-leaf
    clover that parents will want to keep forever, hands-down.

    I have read a bit about St. Patrick's day but we do not recognize it in my zone. However, it is great to know that there are some good things we can teach our children about it.

    hello, your knowledge of St.Patrick is abysmal! There is so much about the saint that could be taught to youngsters yet you persist in this sillyness! Like the sillyness too but let's have some real faith content. Read Patrick's confession.Continued blessings, Jane
