St. Patricks Day: Waldorf Ideas....
As you probably already know- with us being Irish dancers, we LIVE for St. Paddy's day! Every year we read Tommy De Paola's St. Patrick book or pull out our Waldorf book of saints- and read a story from that. The wonderful stories of St. Patrick inspired my son to choose Patrick for his confirmation name. For food, I make a simple Irish soda bread, as I am not keen on most Irish cuisine. Listening to Irish music is already a staple in our household and one of my best friends is in an Irish band- so, it is a delightful connection for us. For Waldorf crafts, we made a simple shamrock-then we wrapped it around cotton pipe cleaners and changed out our Ostheimer St. Nick's staff for the clover. This is our make shift St. Patrick- but making a felted St. Patrick is on my list of priorities- along with King Winter.
Happy St. Patricks day to you : )
