St. Patrick Craft : Blarney Stone

Most of us have heard of "kissing the blarney stone" but do we really know what a blarney stone is? The Blarney stone is a famous stone in Ireland that is believed to have special poser. The legend of "kissing the blarney stone" goes that if a person kisses the blarney stone they will be blessed with eloquence and persuasive power.

A fun way to teach young children about the Blarney Stone is to go on a walk and look for a good looking stone. It needs to look as if it will make a good paper weight. Wash it well, wipe it dry and using green paint, paint the words "kiss me" or perhaps paint a shamrock on the rock.
