The Day After St. Patricks Day

The actual St. Patrick's Day was kinda weird. We had an older brother home sick and the little one can't really concentrate on anything but him when he's around. We did have a Treasure Hunt for some chocolate coins but that's about it. So, Wednesday we did some St. Patrick's Day/Green oriented activities.

I used the green colored cards from my old Phase 10 deck and some green glass stones to have him practice his counting and number order.

We got the colored rice out again and I hid special green coins in it for him to find. He did this for a long time.

We also did another "rainbow" project. I found this nifty "rainbow maker" for $1.75 at the store. It was pretty fun/interesting. The three colored brushes come off so they can be used separately or stuck together to make rainbows. The paint tablet is in the sponge applicator so you just have to dip it in water and paint! He wanted to cover every square inch of his giant piece of paper.
