  • St. Patrick’s Day, by Gail Gibbons
  • St. Patrick’s Day in the Morning, by Eve Bunting and Jan Brett
  • The Story of Saint Patrick’s Day, by Patricia A. Pingry

Pot O Gold Rainbows!

You Need:

  • Cellophane bag
  • Skittle
  • Rolos

An Irish Prayer

May God give you…
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all
and may the luck of the Irish always be with you!
