Do you aspire to be that mom who teaches her kids the real meaning behind holidays? I know I did, and still do. My kids do know that Santa and the Easter bunny are not to be the spotlight stealers on Christmas and Easter…I think. But I wanted to go above and beyond and teach them interesting stuff that most kids don’t know about St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and other lesser known holidays.
That’s actually one of the reasons I started Mommy Maleta in the first place. It helps keep me accountable in teaching both my children and yours about world geography, foreign languages, cross-cultural missions and other topics that I think are important.
So today I would like to share a video about the history of St. Patrick’s Day. It includes lots of interesting stuff your kids don’t know about St. Patrick’s Day. For example, did you know that Patrick was not St. Patrick’s original name? Watch and find out more.
Then you and your kiddos can complete this printable quiz to see how much you remember from the video.
