My blog features the activities and projects I do with my children. I have 3 children age 11, 7 and 4. I watch an infant, plus my 4 year old nephew! This blog highlights the activities/projects we create during the week. It also provides a way for me to organize all of the activities and projects we do, and it is a great way to share the projects/activities. I hope this blog will become a great resource and inspire creativity.

Shamrock Placemats and a Pot of Gold!
Here is our St. Patrick's Day Placemat. Connor is on Spring Break this week, so he was really excited to be able to make a placemat.
Directions: Decorate a sheet of white paper with different types of shamrocks. Mat the paper with green paper and cover with Con-tact paper.
Directions: Cut a pot out of black construction paper - cut an opening on the top of the pot. Lay the pot on a piece of Con-tact paper - sticky side up. Add pieces of yellow tissue paper. Cover the pot with another piece of Con-tact paper ( I made sure there was enough Con-tact paper to just fold over the top of the pot).
Materials Needed:black construction paper, Cont-tact paper, scissors, yellow tissue paper
