St. Patrick’s Day is less than a week away! Where, oh where, is 2015 going? It is flying by! We don’t usually do much for St. Patrick’s Day in our home. We do wear green so no one gets pinched and I like to color our breakfast milk green. Other than that, we haven’t talked much about St. Patrick’s Day or celebrated it in any other way.
This year, I was thankful to read a great kids craft idea from A Modern Day Fairy Tale on St. Patrick. He won many people for God in Ireland and he was a man of prayer. See her prayer journal St. Patty’s Day craft idea for more information. It is so cute.
I do like to spoil my kids. Possibly too much. So this week, I made a little treat bag to give them on St. Patrick’s Day. But I wanted to make it have more of a Christian theme. A Christian St. Patrick’s Day treat bag that they would enjoy. I knew that chocolate coins and a great Bible verse bag topper would be perfect. This verse fits perfectly with the theme of Leprechauns trying to find gold at the end of the rainbow. We do our best to teach our children to store up their treasures in heaven.
Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6: 20
Here are three more Bible verses on money that are important to teach our children:
- And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 19
- In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ Acts 20: 35
- Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless. Ecclesiastes 5:10
What are your favorite Bible verses about money?
If you’d like to offer your kids, or their class a non-candy treat bag, you can use pretend coins, which are almost just as fun for kids.
Here is the Christian St. Patrick’s Day treat bag topper for you to print:
