Prepping for St. Patrick’s Day!
MAKING A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
The four leaf clover is a good-luck charm because finding one is very rare.
The leaves stand for HOPE, FAITH, LOVE AND THE EXTRA RARE LEAF STANDS FOR GOD– FOR GOOD-LUCK.
To make one for yourself, your mom or dad, your sister or friend to take with them to appointments, surgery, chemo, radiation, or any other time is fun, easy and meaningful.
1. Take a piece of green construction paper and fold in half, if you do not have heart paper punches.
2. Cut four half hearts in similar sizes for the petals, from the fold. (If you are making a small good-luck charm you need to make your hearts very small.)
3. Open the heart petals and glue together from the center point. Cut and add a stem.
4. To laminate place between a piece of packaging tape.
5. You may punch a hole and make it as a necklace or bracelet, or just give to place in a pocket or wallet.
5. Give with a card explaining what the petals stand for.
6. For St. Patty’s day you can be creative and make up a limerick to go with it for fun:
There once was a dumb ugly bug
That threatened to pull out our plug.
But with hope, faith and love, and God from above,
We can get through this strong with a hug.
