St. Patrick's Day Fun

Its March so to get into the spirit of St. Patrick's Day we read a cute little book about leprechauns.

That's What Leprechauns Do by Eve Bunting

Its a great little read for St. Patty's Day about 3 leprechauns, their mischief and their pot of gold. It gives the reader a good idea of what a leprechaun is and that was great for us because Alex had no idea.  The illustrations by Emily Arnold McCully are very cute and whimsical too.

I also made him some St. Patty's Day play dough- green with gold glitter. I got the recipe and the great idea from Counting Coconuts. I've used this recipe a few times and it turns out great every time.



and we did some counting practice with a worksheet from Making Learning Fun.
