St. Patty's Day Ideas
Here are a few new things I've found on the web to use for some fun St. Patty's themed learning. Hope you enjoy!
Shamrock color matching file folder game. This one looked so simple, but it was more challenging for my three year old than I thought! Find it here.
Another file folder game. This one is for your kiddos who are starting to sound out words. I'm printing this one for Mr. One (a great kindergarten game). Find it here.
This is at the top of my to do list this week: split pea shamrocks. The boys will love tossing these into our kitchen pots. I'm thinking of some other games to use them with. Will keep you posted if I get that far... Go here for the tutorial.
A few fun math games, better suited for the K-2 set, but I may adapt some for younger kiddos. Find how-to's here.
I really want to do this simple color mixing experiment. With water and not milk. Now I just need to grab some clear plastic cups. Here's the how-to for this activity.
Here's some ideas that I have posted in the past that you may enjoy. Go here and here.
Now, go do something fun with the kiddos in your life. I may be posting less for the next week or so. I have a birthday party to plan and a brother getting married! Good times, but busy times..
