Free Resources for Celebrating St. Patrick's Day

| No TrackBacks
St. Patrick's Day isn't just about shamrocks, wearing green and drinking green beverages.  What may surprise some of you is that this mostly secular celebration of Irish Culture was begun as a religious holiday. In fact, it's truly about celebrating one of the patron saints of Ireland. As such, it's a good opportunity to learn about the history and culture of Ireland.  And we thought this would be a great time to post a list of resources and activities to get you into the St. Patty's Day spirit.

Learn the history behind the day with the History Channel. They have a ton of videos and information about the holiday and the man behind it.

Homeschool Share has an entire page of resources to help you create a unit study on St. Patrick's Day. There are tons of links that tie the holiday to different subjects from geography and vocabulary to art and math.

EasyFunSchool also has a page to help you build a unit study. Their links will direct you to music, online games, traditional Irish Food and even an online quiz.

All Things Beautiful obviously has their mind on a leprechaun's pot of gold as they focus on rainbows with a couple of easy home experiments with color and food.

If you haven't checked out Free Kids Crafts before, this is a great chance to peruse the list of St. Patrick's Day crafts they have. This list is a wide range of crafts for a variety of ages.

Momtastic has a fun St. Patty's Day treasure hunt idea.

And, of course, don't forget to wear green or you might get pinched!!
