Happy St Patricks Day!

Today's craft theme revolved around St. Patricks Day, we made these really cute leprechauns.

We started by cutting straight lines, then made our paper into a tube similar to a lantern.  Then onto cutting a circle for the face which proved to be difficult for Nicole and Emma.  Kayley was able to cut out the hat and bow tie on her own but the others needed Mom to do theirs.  We then did some gluing and decorating as you can see everyone's has their own personal touches.

Making time for regular craft time is a great way to build fine motor skills and confidence.  The kids are always so proud of their accomplishments and nobody can enter the house without admiring the "art gallery".

We ended the day with a kid themed dinner.  Pancakes, orange tinted whipping cream to resemble hair/beard and apple cut to be a hat made our leprechauns.  A side of blueberries, candy rainbow and yogurt for dessert.
