Using A Shamrock To Teach The Trinity This St. Patricks Day



Saint Patrick’s Day, commemorating the life of the great apostle of Ireland, has become a day of celebration. Kids all over are celebrating this holiday by wearing green. Why not use this special holiday to teach your kids about the trinity.

A company call Oriental Trading has a great trinity shamrock that you can cut out and has the “Father”, “Holy Spirit”, “Son” images on each of the different clovers. Just like the leaves of the shamrock there are three parts to the Holy Trinity.

Kids can use colored pencils, crayons, washable markers, permanent markers or acrylic paint to color in the images on the clover. The shape of the paper is 10 1/4″ x 11 1/4″ card stock. The poem in the middle explains the trinity and the three different parts of God.

There is also a shamrock with the trinity images and a space in the middle to put a kids  photo. Oriental Trading has a lot of great resources to explain the trinity using holiday images. I would suggest Sunday School teachers check it out.
