St. Patrick's Day Preschool

Happy St. Patrick's Day, friends! I hope you didn't get pinched! My friend K did a super job leading our preschool, today. We started the morning outside with a shamrock hunt, and a game of leprauchan tag.
We read a St. Patrick's Day book, and learned the real reason we celebrate... the shamrock represents the trinity!
We painted little pots 3 different shades of green, where we later planted some shamrock seeds... can't wait to watch those grow! We also used bell peppers to stamp a shamrock on paper!

We counted gold coins, and searched for them when the leprauchan hid them!

We learned about patterns, and glued in the correct order.

And, of course, we ate a green lunch with both green jello and green shamrock cookies for dessert!
Most of all, we had lots of fun! Thanks, K!
