St. Paddy's Day Fun

St. Patrick's Day
So it was my turn to teach Sunday School today on St. Patrick's Day.  I told the story about St. Patrick and how he had been kidnapped by pagan pirates and spirited away from Britain to the wilds of Ireland. I told them about the way he decided to become a priest and return to Ireland to convert the Druids and other pagans to Christianity. I also got to tell the cool story of how he drove all the snakes out of Ireland.

But, alas, nothing much impressed them until I got out the cool photo props for St. Paddy's Day! And then we had cupcakes with green icing and gummy snakes (gummy worms) for snack so, in the end, the day was a success!

I bet they will remember these stories about St. Patrick even though the pictures and cupcakes seemed to be the main event at the time.
