My oldest are at the age where "toilet humor" is just hilarious so when I came across this pin on Pinterest with green toilet water and leprechaun feet I knew that was a must do! This awaited them first thing in the morning.
|They laughed as hard as I thought they would!|
I also packed the boys' lunches with as much green as I could and a sad attempt at a leprechaun sandwich. I love all those cute bento creations but I just don't have the patience or time for most of those so I do what I can. And of course, the kids love it no matter how they turn out.
|It's the thought that counts, right!?|
My youngest are learning their colors right now so today was the perfect day to get out the Do A Dot markers and make rainbows. We also used our fruit pie sorter and grabbers to make a rainbow with the colored fruit. These are great for working on fine motor skills and can all be purchased on Amazon.
After painting it was time for a bath so I added a little green food coloring to the water. I swear it doesn't stain your bathtub, or kids! One of our favorite bath time activities is mixing shaving cream and food coloring to make "paint" and letting the kids paint the tub. They love this and no mess is left behind! Again, the dollar store carries shaving cream, paint brushes, and holiday decorations. I found the foam shamrocks there.

Since I wasn't going make the kids eat corned beef and cabbage just yet, they had shamrock shaped grilled ham and cheese. Yes, a simple grilled sandwich cut out with a shamrock shaped cookie cuter.
The adult's dinner simmered away in slow cookers all day. In one, I had corned beef and cabbage
and in another, just corned beef which I used to make rueben sandwiches. Low maintenance and delicious!

I hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day too. Here's an Irish blessing I wanted to share...
May your troubles be less
blessings be more
and nothing but
come through your door
