Papa Steve is third generation Irish South African (I’m third generation English South African) and every year we celebrate that heritage on St Paddy’s day.


What is St Patricks Day?

Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick”), is a cultural and religious celebration occurring annually on 17 March, the death date of the most commonly-recognised patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461).

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early seventeenth century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, as well as celebrating the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians also attend church services, and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world; especially in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand. ~ Source

{Worksheet for Kindergarten} Saint Patrick’s Day Math Activity from JDaniel4’s Mom
Leprechaun Roll and Draw is a worksheet designed for children in K4, kindergarten and first grade. It could be used to work with any child. You can change the numbers above the facial features if you like to represent numbers your children need to work on. None of the facial expressions that children are asked to draw to match the number that they have rolled are really that difficult. I guess I should have said here is a fun Saint Patrick’s Day worksheet or printable that can be used for working on math and fine motor skills. That probably would have been a more accurate description.

St. Patrick’s Day Activity for Kids: Making Words from Buggy and Buddy
If you’re not familiar with making words, it’s basically a hands-on activity for kids to make various words by moving letters around. Instead of children having every letter of the alphabet in front of them, kids are given a smaller set of letters to choose from. Allowing children the freedom to create words helps them focus on how moving letters changes the sound and meaning of words. It’s a great way to reinforce letter sounds and spelling in a fun way!
