For the past few years, we have spent a couple of weeks every March studying all things Irish and St. Patrick. Here are the wonderful links we have learned from.

We haven’t made a batch of play dough in years. I wish we had a little one around, the St. Patrick themed mats look like they would be fun for a younger child. http://www.blessedbeyondadoubt.com/free-st-patricks-day-play-dough-mats/
E showed me this photo from a Pinterest board. We’ll make a few of these “Pot- O-Gold at the End of the Rainbow” jars as prizes for a follow the clues treasure hunt. It looks like gold wrapped candy in the bottom followed with layers of M&Ms or Skittles and topped with mimi marshmellows. Cute!
Wishing you Irish blessings!
Ooh, my kids are going to love the leprechaun facts!
Oh great! I love it when a parent lets me know that I’m sharing something they can use too! Thanks!
We tried the rainbow experiments. Guess who’s a magician now 😉
That’s so cool!
