Shamrock Beaded Necklace!

Day 2 of the week - The theme this week is St. Patrick's Day. The letters of the week are s, U, u the number of the week is 15.
Project - Shamrock Beaded Necklace- Directions - Cut green ribbon large enough to slip on and off child's neck. String green and white beads onto green ribbon (I had Connor and Lauren make a pattern), Cut a small shamrock pattern out of green craft foam, once you are halfway punch two holes in the side leaves of the shamrock and thread ribbon through the holes, finish stringing the last half of the beads onto the ribbon, Tie a knot to make a necklace. *Connor made a necklace, but he refused to wear it! He is such a boy!!!! Addie is modeling his necklace in the picture along with Lauren. I saw a variation of this craft at http://www.prekinders.com under the St. Patrick's Day Theme.
