I so enjoyed making my Leprechauns last year and so just HAD to make something new.
Our plans for this day consisted of these ideas:
Dress in green (yes most of us did)
Make Irish Girls (above)
Read the books we own (pictured in my side bar)
Set up bookcase display (initial picture)
make paper snakes ( see below)
Do colouring pages and other activities (as we can from below list)
ST Patrick colour
Heap of St Patrick Ideas
Pick clover for vases
Chalk Board picture
Make Grain Free Chocolate cupcakes and cream on top with mint 'shamrock' decorations (sadly I can't find the picture for this one) Recipe 1 and Recipe 2
Make Irish Soda Bread - recipe here
Things we didn't do but were on my list were:
Make a mini ribbon banner like my Valentine one
Play Pin the Shamrock on St Patrick like we did in a previous year.
Face painting and/ draw Celtic tattoos on body.
St Patrick Play (similar to some of our slide shows)
After the cup cakes were mixed up it is only right and fair that someone licks the bowl!
Over the course of the day we had some interesting conversation with the little ones about this and other themes fro St Patrick.
However the colours worked in our favour yet again with green, white and orange.
We did not watch any of the movies we have as it was quite late when we had finished after our regular and additional Saturday jobs too, as well as sleeping in (gasp, gosh) so we did not even start until about 12pm.
I pray you all enjoyed your own celebrations of one of our favourite saints.......... St Patrick
