An Enchanted Childhood Playschool ~ March 11th-15th ~ Saint Patrick's Day Fun

Early in the week, we read The Story of Saint Patrick's Day and made paper plate rainbows.
Every year, we learn the colors of the rainbow and the order of them!

oh boys... every picture? really?

Later in the week, we read Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert.
The children then made rainbow fruit kabobs for snack.  They loved this activity!

After their snack, they made rainbows and insisted on using some St Patty's Day stickers to decorate the paper!

Some other fun play going on!
