I love St. Patrick’s Day! I can’t even tell you exactly what the entire premise of the holiday is (is that bad?), but I love the whole idea of tricky leprechauns (so school-aged children appropriate, rigth?) and all things rainbow and gold, too, of course. I’ve done all of the fun activities on St. Patrick’s Day, like messing up the room, putting green food coloring in the toilet and making traps. But, I don’t do those things anymore- I haven’t done any of it since I came acrossed the shrinking hat activity and now THAT is how we celebrate the leprechauns in kindergarten (or children of ANY age)! It is such a fun and memorable activity, that is truly all you need to have a little fun with your itty bitties (or children of any age for that matter). It is one of those activities that I am just so excited to share with my students, as well as my own children, year after year. It never seems to lose its magical appeal. If it sounds like you might be interested in getting the complete instructions for this project, as well as a follow up freebie, head on over to my blog to check it out! I hope you have as much as I do with this project!
