Happy St Patrick's Day

What a day! Who knew we could have such green fun! Here are a few pics of our green fun:

yesterday we made leprechaun traps. the kids (and neighbor friend)were very excited to color, tape, glue, ... all things Irish to the box, windows, walls. We made shamrocks, Irish flags, rainbows, ... all in hopes of catching a leprechaun. turns out they were too fast- they did leave behind a messy house, green footprints, gold coins, and when we opened the fridge we found green oatmeal and green coconut milk. They also left a note with some fun things to do on St Pat's Day:

-Make shamrock cookies- very fun & yummy.
Make green playdough- the kids made all sorts of things with this good playdough

Here's green oatmeal pic
I didn't get pictures of dancing an Irish jig or doing Irish Olympics but those were a lot of fun too!

And here's the green gang.

a couple ideas for next year: Shamrock Shirts

Freezer Paper Stenciled Valentine's Shirts. We used the same technique this month to make some Shamrock Shirts for St. Patrick's Day! Because the shirts, paint, and supplies can be purchased very inexpensively at most craft stores, you can easily come together to make fun shirts like this for every holiday!

You are such a great mom. I celebrated by informing my six year old that there is no such thing as a leprechaun and making him cry. He would have been much happier at your house. ;)
