Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day so we want to take the time to tell you about a very special class we are having tomorrow!

According to Irish legend, the leaves on a 4-leaf clover stand for faith, hope, love, and luck. It is often said that there are more 4 leaf clovers in Ireland than anywhere else and that is why the Irish are lucky! That is why tomorrow we have our special St. Partick’s Day Salt Painting Class. Our little leprechauns will use the salt painting technique to create their very own four-leaf clover!

The class is from 4-5 p.m. and is only $10/person! Come and let your kiddos celebrate St. Patrick’s day by creating something fun and festive!

Now for some fun facts about St. Patrick – he was NOT Irish! He was brought to Ireland as a slave when he was only 16 years old. He was actually from Britain. He later escaped slavery but returned to Ireland to convert the people.

There are many legends about St. Patrick the most famous being that he sent the snakes out of Ireland, used a 3-leaf clover to explain the idea of the Holy Trinity (3 persons in one God), and that he raised people from the dead.

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17th because that was the day that St. Patrick died.
