St Patrick's Day

We decided to do this on the spur of the moment and I think it actually turned out pretty well.
The lapbook printouts are from here and the notebooking pages were also free from here

My daughter made a booklet and threaded it together using braided wool. She designed the main logo herself but unfortunately due to my camera work you can't quite make out the leprechaun's hat, or the gold coin or the shillegagh :o(

First page has relevant info on about St Patrick and where he came from and that all business' except restaurants in Ireland are closed for the big day, something which my children think is totally unfair because nothing like that happens here for our saints day :o(

Next page has Ireland's flag on it and info about the country and what the Irish do to celebrate the saint.

Last page has more info on Ireland in a lapbook flap and the 'shillelagh' tradition and the 'pinch' tradition and various legends on St Patrick that my daughter particularly liked.
