If you are looking for a cute St. Patrick’s Day Project look no farther here it is. The kids did this in Sunday school today. I love them. You could do so many different things with them. Since this is from Sunday school, here’s the religious example.
- Rainbow Colored Twizzlers
- 2 Rolos (Chocolate Covered Carmel wrapped with a gold wrapper
- 1 Pretzel Bag (These are the bags you put the pretzel rods dipped in chocolate in. I never new there was such a beast. You get 75 for under $2.00)
- Green Paper Shamrock
- Ribbon if you like
Make the kids wash their hands. You give each child 4 different colored Twizzlers, two Rolos and one pretzel bag.. They put the two Rolos in the bottom of the bag with the circle sides up. Once they get them in position, they put in the Twizzlers one at a time. One word of caution, the Twizzlers are sticky. None of the kids needed help, but it was hard pulling them apart
Next is the paper shamrock. This is where they write the message. We had them put on a message based on Deuteronomy 16:18 which says, “And the LORD has declared this day that you are his people, his treasured possession as he promised, and that you are to keep all his commands.” Our message was “I’m his treasure.”
We then made bags for them to give away. The goal was to give the extra bag to a friend or some one at church that looked like they needed a little pick me up. On this one they wrote, “You are his treasure.”
Once we were done, we had the kids look at both bags they made. We asked them how many had two that were same. None of them did, so this was a great segue into talking about how no two people are the same. We are all God’s treasure no matter what you look like.
There are so many things you can do with this. Teachers could write: We are Lucky to have you as a part of this school. Friends could write: You are worth more to me than a pot of gold. Your could just write “Happy St. Patrick’s Day.” This is a very easy and very cute project for anyone to make. If you change the shamrock to a heart, it would be used for a Valentines Day project. I wish I knew who created this idea but whoever you are Thank You.
They finished up their day in Children’s Church with a self-portrait. I liked how the two projects worked together. Here’s Hope’s.
And here’s Will. If you notice, Will has already been busy!
I thought it was cute. Will and Hope gave their extra bag to their big brothers Jacob and Aaron.
