Since we had to cancel our weekly homeschooling get together with the Millers last week, we did all our St. Patrick's Day activities and crafts this Thursday instead. We watched a Veggie Tales video about St. Patrick and found Ireland on the globe. Then the girls made Shamrock people. They accordian folded the arms, used a paper crimper on the legs, and attached little Sizzix die cut hands and some black boots that I freehand cut. Then they drew faces and clothes on them.
Next they went on a hunt for a pot of gold (chocolate coins), while Betsy and I gave them directions playing "hot and cold". Finally they got to shake up jars full of powdered vanilla pudding, milk, and green food coloring. They had that for a snack. The girls also played "Parcheesy" a new board game that Courtney got for her birthday.
