Happy St Patrick's Day

The girls started the morning off making leprechaun puppets.

Once you find a leprechaun he has to tell you where the pot of gold is!

You can find the clues I used here.

They found their pot of gold! 

The printable for the treasure bags can be found here.

We spent a good part of this beautiful afternoon looking for four leaf clovers!

I made corned beef for the first time today. I threw it in the crockpot this morning and it was ready and waiting on us when got home from ballet tonight. Everyone loved it! We also had garlic/parmesan mashed potatos, another first for me that everyone loved. Of course, the girls washed it all down with green kool-aid (leftovers from the kool dough project) and followed it with a key lime pie dessert. Yum!

Hope you all had a wonderful Saint Patirck's Day!
