Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! Top o’ the Morning! 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. But no, we did not catch a leprechaun this year—I know! We were so hoping. Those little rascals are just too quick. And they once again made a big mess in our playroom! They did leave us some rather delicious green rainbow candy treats, which made up for their shenanigans. We started our day by Decorating a Shamrock Cookie & Playing a Lucky Coin Toss Game, winning Shamrock Tattoos, and having fun with a Wild Shamrock Match Game & St. Patrick’s Day Bingo game, earning Treat Bags! Then we went outside and played Find the Shamrock, winning Shamrock Necklaces. We got to also watch Green Eggs and Ham and earn a cute mini–Leprechaun Hat. We listened to the story “Lizzie the Lazy Leprechaun” before feasting on green Jell-O, green apples, Lucky Charms cereal, oranges, cheese & crackers, green grapes (cut up), frosted shamrock cookies, scrumptious festive shamrock cupcakes, rainbow fruit roll-ups and green punch. And then we enjoyed a special St. Patrick’s Day movie.
May the luck of the Irish be with you!
