St. Patrick's Day fun!

We celebrated St. Patrick's day a little early today with a mixture of activities.

We read "What Makes a rainbow and talked about the legend of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, I found lots of rainbow legends here. Then we made these lovely window hangers, with the idea from teaching hearts (scroll down).

The older children did some rainbow maths. I adapted the game for the younger ones so they could pick a number card, match it to the rainbow and colour the rainbow section.

We wanted to set up this experiment to catch a rainbow but the sun stayed behind the clouds so we will try it when the sun shines!
We made hand print shamrocks from activity village and attached Irish blessings for the children to take home.

For snack time we made Irish Soda Bread. It was yummy!! So yummy that I forgot to take a picture until it was nearly all gone.... ooops!

We had a great day and I can't wait to see what spins off from this!
