|St. Patrick's Pocket Man- Use a perfect square of paper to make the Leprechaun's body. It's best to use either construction paper or cover stock to make the Leprechaun sturdy enough to stand up and hold something. Follow the folding and cutting directions below. Click here to download the Leprechaun's head and pot of gold (PowerPoint file) or better yet draw your own with construction paper and markers. You can also design and draw the Leprechaun's head and pot of gold using KidPix or the Paint Program on your computer. Now fill the pocket with gold coins with facts, vocabulary words, math problems, etc.|
|St. Patrick's Day Ideas from Denise....
Growing Shamrocks: Cut shamrock from terry cloth. Moisten shamrock. Sprinkle with alfalfa seed. Keep moist. Set in dark place. Allow several days for shamrock to grow. Set in sunlight for shamrock to turn green.
Shamrock Shake: Blend 1 banana, 2 cups lime sherbet, and 2 cups milk.
Pot o' Gold Rainbows: Materials needed: (per student) 1 graham cracker, 1 portion blue frosting, 1 mini Reese cup, 1 pack Skittles. Directions: Students spread frosting over graham cracker and place Skittles in the shape of a rainbow. Then place the Reese cup at the end of the rainbow.
(If you like, you can read Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh.)
For each color, take 1 tablespoon milk and 1/2 teaspoon sugar and mix it. This makes quite a few pieces of toast.
If you want to make lots of colors to practice making colors or if if you have more children or students, you will need to make more.
Place some of the milk mixture in small jars, glasses, small margarine containers, or other containers.
Repeat this 3 times.
Add red, yellow, and blue food coloring in containers.
It takes 1 drop to make each color.
Take a piece of white bread.
Paint the bread with some of the milk using a pastry brush or small paint brush.
Make sure not to paint it with too much milk or it will become soggy (if the child does do that, that is okay, since children love to explore).
Mix some of the red with some of the yellow and see what color it makes (orange).
Mix some of the yellow with the blue and see what color it makes (green).
Mix some of the blue with some of the red and see what color it makes (violet/purple).
Put the bread in the oven or a toaster oven.
Take it out when it is lightly brown.
Draw a Rainbow in One Swipe
Tape six different colored crayons in a straight line. Show your students how to draw a rainbow with one stroke.
Dye stringable pasta in batches of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Let your children use the pieces for activitiesuch as:
*Glue on white paper to make a rainbow.
*Sort and count the pasta pieces by color.
*Place or glue the pieces on matching colored paper.
Provide every child with a shallow container of milk. Place a couple drops of different food coloring in the milk. Next have the child dip a toothpick into a little dish soap and then dip it into the milk. What happens? Try it again!
Use water colors to paint on coffee filters to make rainbow creations.
