A Belated Happy St. Patrick's to You!

Here it is, the 20th of March, the first day of spring, and I have yet to write a recent March post. St. Patrick's Day? Done. The lion and the lamb? Done. Well, you are going to get them anyway!

Today I am going to post our St. Patrick's Day fun for both classes. The three-year-olds had a blast our green rice with gold coins, the shamrock table, and the Lucky Charm sorting.

Our craft a Fruit Loop rainbow with Sugar Pop gold was a major hit too. That room smelled so good! I do have to say the children were a bit "sugared" us when it was time to go.

We finished up the day with our shamrock hunt and found a treat left by a leprechaun too. I told them to wait until they got home to eat the candy.

Pre-K had many of the same activities going on at the tables: green rice with coins, Lucky Charm sorting, and shamrock making. They had one extra table though--green applesauce. I had placed the applesauce in a bowl with some cups next to it. They spooned some applesauce in their cup and "sprinkled" some green sugar--like the kind used to make cookies. The only problem with this was that the sugar came out in a pour mode rather than a sprinkle mode.

The craft for the class was a rainbow leprechaun hat. Our previous Pre-K teacher used to make it with the children and I always thought it looked so festive.

Pre-K also got to finish up the day with the shamrock hunt and the leprechaun treat.

Oh, I have to show this great treat one of our parents brought in for the children. It is rainbow colored licorice and two gold chocolate coins. She had them in a bag with a poem that read:

You've got the gold at the end of the rainbow. Happy St. Patrick's day!

Lots of St. Patty's Day fun! I didn't get to do everything I had planned- the stomach flu took over our home that week. Take Care, Trish.
