Shamrocks are the theme of today! This morning we got to lace shamrocks. We used foam shamrocks and pipe cleaners. I got the foam shamrocks at the dollar store. They came in plain green and sparkly green. I am saving the plain green ones for another fun activity for next week. Have I mentioned my love of the dollar store?!?! I will save that for a whole other post. :) I just used a small hole punch to punch little holes around the outside. Some shamrocks had lots of holes and some had just a few. Little Monkey did great with it. He had lots of fun repeating, 'pull, pull, pull' over and over again each time he put the pipe cleaner into a new hole. We started out with me holding the shamrock until he got the hang of it. He has now done 5 of them all by himself. I think we might be ready to move onto string or ribbon to lace from now on. I will keep that in mind for Easter ideas. This afternoon we are doing shamrock hand prints. I will get as many pictures of that as I can. I am hoping to get Little Princess in on this one. I am guessing the camera might be a little green by the end of the day.
