St. Patrick's Day FHE

Opening Song: The Holy Ghost

Lesson: Read this brief history of St. Patrick. Point out that St. Patrick's life was a hard one but because he never stopped having faith he was able to be guided to do wonderful things. Talk about his using the shamrock as a lesson on the Godhead. Repeat together the first article of faith.
Talk about how the shamrock has three separate leaves but are joined together on the same stem. discuss why Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are different/separate and how they are similar or considered "as one". Here are some articles with ideas or answers to these questions that you can read before you give the lesson:
You can write these down on a big cutout or drawing of a shamrock. Write the differences on the leaves and the unifying elements on the stem.
Treat: Green Rice Crispie Treats
Game: St. Patrick's Memory Game (Print out two copies onto thick or color backed paper)

You have saved me! I've been so exhausted today and I just sat down at the computer to plan FHE when I saw your blog post. I hope you don't mind if I link your post at my blog? I usually post about what I do for FHE.

Such a cute idea! Too bad we already had FHE. Maybe I'll store it away for next year.

Thanks for this post! I have been wanting to do a St Patrick's Day themed lesson on the Godhead and most posts are about rainbows and pots of gold, which isn't bad, I just want my kids to always remember the real reason behind St Patrick's day. Thanks!
