Today I found a very cute website called http://www.meetthedubiens.com. On their blog, they had a wonderful list of fun activities for St. Patrick’s Day for the kids. Here are a few of my favorites 🙂
Green Eggs and Ham:
Though the story may not be St. Patrick’s Day themed, the color surely is! Jazz up breakfast on St. Patrick’s Day be adding some green food coloring to your eggs and ham.
How cute is this?! Here is how to make it using your child’s precious hands:
What you’ll need:
orange paint, peach paint, paint brush, paper, green and black craft foam, scissors, glue, yellow button, sharpie
1. paint your child’s fingers (excluding the thumb) orange and paint their palm peach. Stamp on the paper. Paint just the top of their palm orange for some hair. Allow to dry. 2. cut a hat out of the green craft foam and a stripe for the hat out of the black foam. 3. have your kids glue the hat and stripe on their little leprechaun. Glue a yellow button on the hat. 4. using a sharpie, draw on his adorable little face.
Lucky Handprint Four Leaf Clover:
Another fun way to make a beautiful project using those adorable digits! Here’s how you make this one:
What you’ll need:
green paint, paper, paint brush, (optional – glitter and glue)
1. paint your child’s palm green and have them stamp their hand, fingers pointing in and together, 4 times to resemble a shamrock. 2. paint on a green stem and allow to dry. 3. optinally, paint on some glue and sprinkle on some glitter for a really cool look.
How adorable is this plate? After crafting all morning, refuel your children with this super creative, super cute lunch! Here is how Jill made it, but feel free to put your own spin on it!
