What Does a Pot of Gold Symbolize?
But we start with our pot of gold crafts, your children might wonder what is it about, and why we make a pot of gold crafts. Therefore I like to start by answering those questions first.
The Oxford dictionary says a pot of gold is a large amount of money, especially one that is unattainable or illusory. It also symbolizes the realization of hopes, dreams, and happiness.
The Legend of Pots of Gold and Rainbows
Now since it is clear to us what a pot of gold is and what it symbolizes, let’s find out why we always search for a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
It all began with the Irish myth of the leprechaun. The leprechaun was a mischievous Irish fairy who didn’t like humans. The legend says he found abandoned gold and buried it again so no human can find it ever again.
It is told the leprechaun hit it at the end of the rainbow, where the rainbow touches the earth.
My children love this fairytale and this is why we always look up when we see a rainbow and are wondering if we could find a pot of gold at the end of it!
So why not use the chance while crafting to listen to the story of the leprechaun and his pot of gold? Listen here to the full story of the leprechaun.
