St. Patricks Day activties

 Wow....I can't believe that March is here and half gone already!  We have had some fun this week with some messy art activities.

We painted shamrocks with green peppers cut in half.


Everyone joined in the fun with finger painting rainbows.  The babes finger painted using cool whip and food coloring while the older kids had shaving cream and paint.  

M was a little nervous to dig in with her hands at first and just mixed it with a wooden dowel but she soon dove in!  :)

C kept pretty much to using dowel to mix and splash the shaving cream.
P did not hesitate to dive in and have a spread his shaving cream everywhere!  :)

 We also enjoyed some straw painting.
