Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Go Green or Go Home. The wee little folk in the Teddy Bear class had our traditional Irish music playing all morning, and proudly wore our personally crafted shamrock headbands most of the day. Unfortunately, we didn’t catch a leprechaun this year—those little rascals are just too quick. They also made a big mess in our play room—jeez! But they did leave us some rather delicious green rainbow candy treats, which made their antics forgivable. Our festivities included a wild shamrock match game, earning treat cups, and a find the Shamrock search game, winning bubbles. And then, after we watched Green Eggs and Ham we all earned a cute mini leprechaun hat. We listened to the story “The Luckiest St. Patrick’s Day Ever” right before we feasted on green cream cheese celery sticks, green Jell-O, green apples, green applesauce, green chips with green dip, Lucky Charms cereal, frosted shamrock cookies, scrumptious festive cupcakes and green punch. It was a magically delicious day.
