St. Patrick's Day

Each week we have a play group with friends from church. We opted to have a St. Patrick's Day party and the kids were all over it! Kristen, a dear friend of mine, came up with a great scavenger hunt with clues left by tricky leprechaun. The kids got shamrock power (the shamrocks on their cheeks) to help them solve the clues. The last clue led them to the "gold" which were brown bags filled with some candy, green necklaces, lucky charms, and gold coins.

During St. Patrick's Day we all wore green and took the kids to get mint blizzards at Dairy Queen because they are green. Now, anytime Colton sees ANYTHING green he says "That must be for Patrick."I guess he doesn't quite understand that St. Patrick's Day is an actual day--not a person!

You are so clever! I am so glad you have such nice friends to share your great ideas! I dare you to name your baby, Patty. Then Colton will be confused when you don't dress her in green!
