Here's a crossword puzzle to help you celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. His life is shrouded in legend.
A Leprechaun is a devious little troll who is capable of turning into a frog to escape capture. Leprechauns are shoe-makers who dress in suites with waist coats, hats and buckled shoes.
Make it more interesting by having small groups of participants to share in the creation of each Leprechaun; two or three people taking turns in tracing, cutting, gluing and decorating the hat, legs, jacket and vest.
Limerick poetry is very stimulating for the mind and lots of fun.
In honour of the Irish, encourage everyone to sport a silly green hat on St Patrick’s Day! Add a green T-Shirt, a cup of tea and some green scones and sit down to an Irish movie.
