Today we worked on our St. Patty's Day craft and made Rainbow water for the occasion. I know that many people are doing amazing crafts today with their kids but we are exhausted after our busy week and gearing up for the insanity of the rest of the week.
First thing we did was the St. Patty's craft from Shirley's Packaged CRafts. I bought her April set also...I think its a GREAT idea!
Then we decided to make Rainbow water which I have to tell you was more fun than I thought it would be. I wasn't sure how much Ellie would enjoy it but throughout the morning I would find her back stacking, sorting, carrying...it was cute!
1. Water bottles
2. Fill 3/4 way with water
3. Add 1/2 c cooking oil
4. Drops of food color
Then she ENJOYED shaking the bottles to mix the colors.
We also use Bubber....we have had this for over a year...vacuums easily....does not dry out. We absolutely LOVE using it!
When I have several subjects with Trey to do we get her ABC book out that I laminated and three hole punched and she practices her writing and numbers. She loves it!
Happy ST. Patty's Day! Enjoy the lovely weather!
