We celebrated St. Patrick's Day by making shamrock necklaces. I whipped up some salt dough and used my shamrock cookie cutter to create the 3 leaf clover shape. They were baked on low heat until they were hard. The next day, my class painted them green to resemble a shamrock. As you can see, they are no longer green...... the sneaky leprechaun came and turned them gold! All I did was spray paint gold on them and add some gold glitter. My class was SHOCKED that the leprechaun had done this.
We also went on a scavenger hunt to find the leprechaun! Of course he outsmarted us again! However, he did leave us a beautiful painted rainbow along with some gold coins for our trouble.
Check out these adorable leprechauns that my class made. I got the idea from The Art of Teaching: A Kindergarten Blog. They turned out so cute!
Here are a couple of my favorite St. Patrick's Day books. They were a big hit!
We glued the poem My Little Shamrock in our poetry books. If anyone knows who the author is please let me know. Boy, was that a fun week!!
