St. Patrick's Day Theme

Rainbow Sorting: Paper plates, construction paper and colorful pompoms. That is all! Add plastic spoons and tweezers and it is time to sort colors. For a 'super' mission, dump hundreds of color pompoms on the floor and preschoolers will go crazy collecting and sorting all the colors.

 Gold Slime!!! This was the most amazing slime I have ever made. I used the regular glurch/slime mixture--one part glue & one part liquid starch. I added gold biocolor tempera paint. Another secret was using clear school glue. It is iridescent when pulled apart. It was too fun.


Rainbow Garden: One day the Leprechaun left us magic rainbow seeds. We planted them right away and are eager for the green sprouts to bloom.

Leprechaun Traps: This special package was left in the Leprechaun traps set by the preschoolers. I use rainbows and shamrock confetti instead of chocolate coins due to food allergies. The note reads, "Haha! Hehe! You could not fool me. Fiddle-de-fizz, 'tis magic, it is!" Better luck next year." --Larry the Leprechaun

Leprechaun Traps made by 3's & 4's.
Only recycled materials were used. 

Rainbow Dancing Wands: These are made with curling ribbons and plastic food lids. I recency saw similar wands made birthday party bracelet favors and shower curtain rings. Any closed circle would work. I use these in my classroom all the time for movement. Around St. Patrick's day, we like to play 'leprechaun' aka Irish music during movement time and dance with rainbows!
