1. Gift of the gab

Tell the children about the various symbols that are associated with Saint Patrick’s Day. One is the Blarney Stone – a stone set into the wall of Blarney Castle in Ireland. Legend tells that a spell was cast on the stone meaning that anyone who kissed it would be able to speak eloquently. Share this verse of a poem about the Blarney Stone with the children:
There is a stone there,
That whoever kisses,
Oh, he never misses
To grow eloquent.
