"Fröbelspatzen" celebrate St. Patrick's Day
The 17th of March is St. Patrick's Day, the National holiday in Ireland. All children in the Green Group at the FRÖBEL-Kindergarten "Fröbelspatzen" in Berlin wore green clothes. Aktivities on the day were led by our Irish colleague and included baking an apple crumble and playing games such as „Shamrock Hop“ and „Gold Toss". Arts and crafts themes included shamrocks, leprechauns, rainbows and the colour green.
St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is celebrated for bringing Christianity to the Irish. It is said that he also chased the snakes out of Ireland!
