Archive for the ‘St. Patrick’s Day’ Category
Hunter is 15 months old
Our theme this week was the color green and St. Patrick’s Day
I put yellow and blue paint in a Ziploc bag and then used painter’s tape to stick it on the table. I also covered the seal of the Ziploc bag with packaging tape for some extra reinforcement to make sure it stayed shut.
Hunter thought it was great!
Hailey joined us with her own bag and practiced writing some words on hers.
Hunter loved playing with his!
Hunter made a picture using a green do-a-dot marker. He loves using these and is never happy when it’s time to put them away.
Hailey had fun making a rainbow.
Hunter was really into our art projects this week and had a blast doing all of them!
We made a puffy paint shamrock (see the full post here) and Hunter had so much fun and made a nice big mess.
The green collage shamrock turned out cute (see full post here).
Hunter had fun making his pot of gold too (see full post here).
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
I was trying to make a St. Patrick’s Day rainbow in a jar today when my mom came over to watch Hunter while I went to volunteer in Hailey’s class. It was not working out the way I wanted it to. So, I told her what I was trying to do. When I got home it looked exactly like I was hoping it would
On the bottom of the jar there are chocolate gold coins, then all the colors of the rainbow using M&Ms. On the top is marshmallows to represent a cloud. I love how it turned out!!
You need glue, green paint and shaving cream. We also had a paper plate to mix everything on and a shamrock shape. I used a cereal box to cut out the shamrock so that it would be a little sturdier.
Mix the shaving cream, glue and paint. I have also used food coloring to color the puffy paint, but it stains the skin and takes a while to come off, so I prefer to use paint.
Mix it all together.
Let the fun begin
Yay! Hunter loved it!!
Hailey worked very carefully on her shamrock.
Hunter painted his tummy while I was taking a picture of Hailey’s work.
Hailey’s completed shamrock. When it dries the paint stays puffy and it so neat!
Hunter’s completed shamrock… He played with his paint so much that it lost its puffiness, which is fine because he had fun. But if you want it to stay puffy don’t play with it too much.
See the rest of our St. Patrick’s Day activities that we have done.
Since Saint Patrick’s Day is only a few days away and because Hunter is learning the color green, I thought it would be fun to make a shamrock using all different green collage materials.
First I gathered our supplies- glue, shamrock shaped paper and all the green things I could find.
Next they used the do-a-dot markers to decorate the shamrock.
Add on some green collage materials. Hunter loved this! I put the glue on his shamrock and then he put the pieces on. He kept picking them up and moving them around. This kept his attention for quite a while.
Hailey worked for a long time on hers too, she had to position everything just right.
