I was in need of a new sensory table idea. It had been empty for a few weeks, but I finally found something I thought was fun!
“Pink and Green Mama” has a really fun St. Patrick’s Day theme idea. http://pinkandgreenmama.blogspot.com/2011/03/peg-doll-leprechauns-st-patricks-day.html
Like always, I am NOT as crafty as that Mama, but I did my best to make it fun for the kids.
We decided to call it a Leprechaun Village. We had to do some explaining to them about leprechauns, St. Patrick’s Day, etc. It was a fun little lesson for them.
Here is what I came up with!
Items included: green rice, wood rainbows. foam shaped shamrocks, “emeralds", coins, pots, and a couple houses.
And here our the Leprechauns! And I never said I was artistic!
I made a couple little houses for the Leprechauns to live in. I used plastic flower pots from the Dollar Tree that came in a 10 pack. And a pack of fake moss that I hot glued to the outside of the pot!
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MOM! WE LOVE YOU!
