There are statues and frescos dedicated to the legend of Saint Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland.
Saint Patrick with SnakesStudio 5 ksl bubble-blow-craft So is a legend something to be believed as a true story?  A legend is any popular or larger than life story that is handed down from one generation to another.

So this explains why naturalists emphatically state that Ireland never had any snakes that needed driving into the Irish Sea.

Other history buffs say that the legend or story got its start because pagans had tattoos of snakes.  Saint Patrick got rid of the pagans by teaching Christianity. This theoretically explains how he drove  the snakes out of Ireland.

Well, I never did and never will like to handle real snakes.

Playing with snakes made out of green bubbles, is my kind of fun.

How to make cork boats, blow green bubble snakes, and create an erupting volcano are shown in this KSL Studio 5 video.  Brooke Walker, the host of Salt Lake City’s ‘Studio 5,’ and I had a blast playing with these science projects.

Camp Grandma is all about crafts and learning the scientific reason why bubbles grow so huge.

This recipe makes long lasting bubbles that stay firm and won’t break.

The “snakes” will keep growing as long as you keep blowing.

What craft is your kids’ favorite?
