Art Showcase and St. Patrick's Day

This week I decided to tie in the Art Showcase and St. Patrick's day.  We did a couple of crafts yesterday and had a great time doing them.  Please feel free to link your child's artwork/craft projects to the gallery.

Today, we were very busy as we celebrated St. Patrick's day as well as Happy Hearts Day (more to come on that).  To kick off our day, we tried to all wear green.  We then took some time to learn about St. Patrick.  We read stories and then the girls and I had a discussion about some important aspects of his life.  After story time we moved on to crafts.  We made a St. Patrick card and the Blessed Trinity clover, which I printed from Tracy over at  A Slice of Smith Life .  The kids had so much fun. Tay even looked up how to write Happy St. Patrick's Day in other languages.   Buddy decided that he was more interested in spreading glue all over his paper, rather than actually gluing his clover.  Oh well, the point is to have fun, right.  Here are the kids submissions this week.  I hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick's day.  Enjoy the gallery this week!

  3. These are beautiful Kimberly! Your kids did such a great job! Thanks for the mention of my blog post even though I "stole" Holly's great St. Patrick's day printout! My kids worked on their trinity shamrocks too! I hope to link up to your Art showcase sometime today!
