Holy Trinity Shamrock Craft

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here’s a Holy Trinity Shamrock Craft!

It works best to glue above Holy Trinity shamrock onto a popsicle stick after coloring it. Then, glue the back to green construction paper and cut it out. Cut out the Glory Be prayer and glue it to the back. Children can pray the Glory Be prayer on the back of the Holy Trinity shamrock.

Mom’s Group Activity for the Kids

This craft was made for the children to accompany our (mom’s) reading for the week. We are reading from Lisa Hendey’s Book, Catholic Mom. This activity is for chapter 4, Faith Family: Finding a Parish and Nurturing Your Faith Community. Our group is at Holy Trinity Catholic Church and it’s almost Saint Patrick’s Day, so it was an ideal activity for us. The kids really enjoyed it, too. 🙂 We start the group with a prayer, do the kid’s activity and reading. Then, the kids spend free time together as we discuss our reading. It works really well. Moms and kids come together and close with a prayer, too. 

One of my friends from the group read a great book to the kids, The Story of Saint Patrick’s Day. The book perfectly complimented the activity!
