St. Patrick's Day fun

We've had a St. Patties day themed week and I thought I'd share some of the goings on.

Color of the Week: Green
# of the week: 3
Shape of the Week: Shamrock

Point out home state on the globe, travel "by boat" to Ireland on the globe.
Big kids get to label and color this map of Ireland.

Listen to traditional Irish Music
Last year, we listened to an online Irish radio broadcast. It was very cool but I can't seem to find it this year. If anyone knows of one, please share the link so we can enjoy it again.

Rainbow theme:
Make chocolate chip cookies using M&M's instead of chocolate chips for "rainbow cookies"
Glue Fruit Loops onto pictures of rainbows.
Book: Pooh's "Good as Gold"
Big kids get to build a prism.

Minty Playdough
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • food coloring
  • peppermint extract

Mix all ingredients, adding food coloring & extract last. Stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove from pan and knead until blended smooth. Place in plastic bag or airtight container when cooled. Will last for a long time.

VeggieTale's Sumo of the Opera. It has a great little segment on it about St. Patrick.

You forgot Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland, by Tomie DePaola! Alas, this great saint's feast day falls during Holy Week this year, and the Passion of Our Lord trumps Patrick's celebration. :-)

Oooh! I hadn't seen this book! And I didn't know there was a feast day for St. Patrick - thanks for sharing with your Catholic-impaired friend. :) I'll have to look into that one.
