I know it's a week late but I thought I'd share how we celebrated our St. Patrick's Day 2015!
We started off with some green mustache family fun!
How cute are these boys?!!!!
Then we discussed the story of St. Patrick, who we was, what he did for Ireland and why he is associated with wearing green, what miracles have been attributed to him, etc.
Since we have just moved and I still haven't found all of my craft supplies, I decided we could draw our own St. Patrick using what we had...packaging paper and crayons!
I traced Pickle's body to make the body of St. Patrick, then decorated him with his bishop's hat and staff! Pickle was in charge of coloring (which turned out that mom also had to help out with that as well b/c it was a LOT of coloring)! But turned out pretty good if you ask me.
This was followed by a nap to which Pickle woke up to a gold coin trail beginning at his bedside and went throughout the house to the "treasure" which seemed to be left by our friendly Leprechaun.
Psst...the bag of gold coins and the mustaches were grabbed at the Dollar Tree a week before. Other than than, all other items were found around our house...yes, including the Skittles! Hahahaha!
While I prepared dinner, delicious cornbeef and cabbage (a tradition) pictured below, Pickle and little Bean sat and watched CCC of America's Patrick: Brave Shepard of the Emerald Isle pictured below also.

Have you checked out their Saints and Heroes DVD selection? They have wonderful DVDs and several times a year some really great deals! I bought my Saints and Heroes bundle at 60% off!!!!
So that is how we celebrated our St. Patrick's day! Always some religious learning as well as some imagination and fun.
How did you celebrate your St. Patrick's day 2015?
Blessings to you and yours,
