Leprechaun Love!

This week we had lots of fun with shamrocks, leprechauns and all things green.

On St. Patrick's Day we had a shamrock inspired breakfast.

Then at lunch time we discovered that a tricky leprechaun colored our milk green! Suprisingly it tasted the same as regular milk, and there was suggestion that next time the leprechaun add some flavoring to it as well! 

For me, the gift of sunshine & near 60F degrees was the best part of St. Patrick's Day!

We brought our sensory table outside so we could soak up the rays as the kids played. The hard red winter wheat has a great texture for exploring and both of my little leprechauns had a great time playing in it.

Of course adding gold coins to the box made it even more fun!

My son's favorite part of the week was the tribe of 15 leprechauns that we made for his preschool class. He had visions on cutting lots of gold paper coins to put inside but once I realized that I was the one doing all the cutting I made the executive decision that the wee folk would be coin-less! They turned out super cute none the less!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
