Today is St. Patrick’s Day! I look forward to this day all year, and still it has managed to sneak up on me this time. I have a large amount of Irish blood flowing through my veins, and so I love embracing that and sharing it with my children, especially on this day.
We are taking today pretty low-key. We’ve all donned are Irish green shirts, enjoyed some Lucky Charms, and the kids are currently playing a leprechaun spin on hide-n-seek! In a little bit we plan to watch the Veggie Tales St. Patrick’s day short, and then later today The Happiest Millionaire.
Since we got a late start. I’ve decided to extend our enjoyment into next week with the St. Patrick’s Day unit study from Knowledge Quest. It looks wonderful, and includes an engaging, well-written biography of St. Patrick, maps, timelines, and lots of great ideas for activities.
How’s this comparison shot? St. Patrick’s Day last year and this year! Everyone but the baby is wearing the same shirt
