We have been doing lots of work this week, and some of it included learning about St Patrick. I stumbled across a Youtube video of a Leprechaun counting. In the video, he Leprechaun says he is ‘1001’ years old. A little girl I teach, who is very small with large, blue, marbled eyes asks with wonder,
“Miss Rainbow, do Leprechauns live forever?”
It was like she was asking if Santa is real (of course he is!). I said, ‘Yes sweetheart, they do live forever.’
We made pots of gold and rainbows (find them on my Pinterest board for Religious Celebrations). The same little girl told everyone to,
“Make sure you put plenty of glitter on the pots of gold to keep them living forever.”
With any luck, she’s kept the magic going.
