There are many legends about St. Patrick. One involves SNAKES. Now here's a craft your boy will love!
"Some people say there are no snakes in Ireland because Saint Patrick drove them out, just as he had driven out sin. Patrick got rid of the snakes by beating a drum hard and fast. The snakes couldn't stand the noise so they slithered into the sea." -Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland, by Tomie dePaola
- green paint (I used acrylic)
- eyes (googly eyes would be perfect)
- piece of ribbon or fabric for tongue
Paint your stick...errr...I mean snake.
Let it dry.
Glue on your tongue.
Find some eyes. I didn't have googly eyes on hand, so we used sequins...
Anne wanted girl-y flower eyes.
Then, play St. Patrick and the snakes. We went outside and tried to scare all the snakes into the sea.
