A St Patricks Day Craft
Lucky Shamrock Flowers
Here's an easy St Patricks Day craft to make with the kids....shamrock flowers that can be bunched together in a holiday bouquet or used as magic wands!
Everyone knows that a shamrock is one of the symbols of St. Patrick's Day, but do you know why?
According to many sources, the shamrock was a vital part of St. Patrick's teachings. He used its three rounded leaves, growing on a single stem, as a natural symbol to simplify the concept of the Trinity.
It is also said that the deep green color of the shamrock, which became Ireland's emblem, cancels out the superstition that it is bad luck to wear green.
