Tip 1: Repurpose your Valentine's Day stickers into Shamrocks
Do you have any leftover heart stickers from Valentine's Day? Why not make them into shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day?
I took this sheet of leftover Valentine hearts and made colorful clover cards. We used these cards for sorting and patterning.
Tip 2: Make Shamrock Prints with Peppers
You know the old rhyme, "Peter Piper printed a peck of shamrock peppers..." No. No. That's not right... Anyway, apparently these are not anything new. After I first saw them on Pinterest-- linked to this article on St. Patrick's Day crafts--- I have seen them EVERYWHERE. But let me be honest, they were new to me!
Tip 3: Share a St. Patrick's Day book with your child
Readers, I need your help on this tip. I did not have any luck when searching for great books about St. Patrick's Day for the boys. I found a few books that had a few informative facts, but I didn't find any books that I was excited to share! There have to be some great St. Pat's Day books. Some of you have been in the preschool business longer than me, would you be willing to share your favorite St. Patrick's Day books? Even if we can't locate a copy until next year, I'll be ready to go by then! If you have a review post of the book, share the link. I'd love to be able to pin the book to my spring pinterest board.
Speaking of Pinterest, are we connected on Pinterest? You can find me at http://pinterest.com/bookblogmomma. Where can I find you?
I am actually a (part) Irish girl, so we will probably hit a parade and do something fun for St. Patty's I hope you have a fun day with your families as well!
