an old Gaelic Blessing and a craft (look two in two days!)

May those who love us, love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts
May He turn their ankles.
So we'll know them by their limping.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

In the spirit of Saint Patrick's Day we made shamrock prints using, what else?, potatoes. You'll need green paint, white paper, a potato and a heart shaped cookie cutter.
Slice the potato in half. Press the cookie cutter in the cut side of the potato. With the cookie cutter still in the potato, slice around it. Remove the cutter and do the same on the other half.

Dip the potato in green paint and print onto the paper. I demonstrated how to make a shamrock with the hearts and we added a stem using our index fingers dipped into the paint.
