Easy & Energetic St. Patrick's Day Game for Kids!

I love the excitement surrounding any Holiday.
Even St. Patrick's Day gets my kids excited and full of energy!
If your kids have a little extra excitement this time of year, here is a fun way to burn off some of that energy!

  • White cardstock
  • Green construction paper
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Prep Work:

1. Use a small cup (or something else round) and trace 24 circles onto a couple pieces of white cardstock. Mine are about 2 1/2" big.

2. Cut them out. (*HINT: You can also use the stack & cut method I always use: Trace onto one paper and put 1-2 more underneath to cut out more at once!)

3. Using the green construction paper, draw and cut out 6 small clover shapes that fit onto the circle.
     OR you can draw clover shapes right onto 6 of the circles with a green marker.

4. Glue the clovers onto 6 of the circles.

5. On the rest of the circles, draw a smiley face with a marker.

Time to Play!!
  • Lay out all the circles on a table or floor.
  • Take turns choosing a circle and turn it over. 
    • If you get a SMILEY FACE ---- RUN to the nearest mirror and show yourself your biggest smile!
    • If you get a LUCKY CLOVER ---- JUMP up and down as you say, "Hooray! Hooray! Today is my LUCKY DAY!" 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Crafts & Activities for BOYS!

It can sometimes be tricky to find crafts and learning activities that will capture a little boy's attention span. Believe me, I know! I have 3 little boys and so many of our crafts and activities are along themes of things that little boys often love! Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)

And if you are wondering where to get SUPPLIES for these crafts and activities, check out this post!

Build a Dinosaur!

Our recent theme for Preschool@Home was DINOSAURS! This is a great (and super easy) activity for helping kids learn and recognize shapes. Using craft foam means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are endless.
Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will most likely produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
