Are you excitedly anticipatingโ˜˜๏ธ St. Patrick's Day? Will you be trying to catch a Leprechaun? Do you think any of your perfect traps would work? Well, a legend says that you can catch a Leprechaun only if you have ๐Ÿ€a four-leafed clover! Do you know the difference between a shamrock and a clover?

  • โ˜˜๏ธA shamrock (a symbol of Ireland and St. Patrick's Day) is a young spring of white clover that grows during winter in Ireland. The word shamrock comes from the Irish word โ€˜Seamrogโ€™ meaning little clover or young clover. The plant never flowers, and if planted outside of Ireland it will wither and die. Usually, the shamrock has three leaves, which stand for faith, hope, and love. The shamrock is associated with Ireland because Saint Patrick, Irelandโ€™s patron saint, have used the plant as a metaphor for the Holy Trinity of the father, the son and the holy spirit. 
  • ๐Ÿ€ The four-leafed clover or โ€œlucky cloverโ€ is very difficult to find since it is an uncommon variation of the three-leafed clover. A four-leaf clover is meant to represent Godโ€™s Grace and is considered to be a symbol of good luck. Have you been lucky?

Today, we enjoyed making โ˜˜๏ธShamrock Persons โœ‚๏ธDIY  ๐Ÿ’šCraft from recycled toilet paper rolls, green ribbons and cut out shamrock templates. We are using a common โ˜˜๏ธ three-leaf shamrock (not the lucky four-leafed clover) since children decided that this year they do not wish to catch a Leprechaun, but rather they are hoping to become friends with him.

Please, let me know if you end up catching a Leprechaun! (Don't tell me where his๐Ÿ’ฐpot of gold is though ๐Ÿ™‚
