As the legend goes, there was an innkeeper who was less than generous with his drinks. St. Patrick visited the inn and was displeased at the lack of drink he was served. St. Patrick pulled the innkeeper aside to teach him a lesson in generosity. He informed the innkeeper that there was a devil residing in his cellar, feeding off of the innkeeper’s dishonesty and greed. To banish the devil, the innkeeper must change his ways. Some time later, St. Patrick visited the inn again. He was pleased to see that the innkeeper was filling the drinks to overflowing. The devil in the cellar was banished. The custom of Pota Phadraig or Patrick’s Pot remains to remind everyone to be generous and honest.

Charm your children this year with a fun craft and game for St. Patrick’s Day! Before St. Patrick’s Day arrives, have your children help you make some Lucky Charms.

Use white Model Magic to make quarter sized medallions. Using a small heart stamp, impress three leaf clovers into the medallions. Make one of the clovers the lucky four leaf clover. Let the medallions dry 24 hours. Be sure to flip them at least once so the medallions dry evenly.

Once dry, paint your medallions with gold metallic paint. Allow the paint to dry.

On St. Patrick’s Day, hide your little lucky charms all over the house for your kids to find throughout the day. Any time someone finds a lucky charm, they get a prize. Have an extra special prize for whoever finds the four leaf clover charm.
