St. Patrick's Day Art Project
It's green. It's lucky. And guess what: St. Patrick’s Day is a kindergarten social studies topic, too! This year, kids are learning about major holidays in their communities, and kindergarten classrooms usually feature special treats like shamrock crafts and picture book read-alouds. As your child explores this day, you've also got a great opportunity to bring the day home with some “leprechaun” fun. You know—those mischievous characters who leap in to cause all sorts of whimsical mischief? The ones you never see, but who you “know” are real because of their “leprechaun gold”? Here's a cute discovery game that should make everyone grin while giving those early social studies skills some joyful flex.
What You Need:
- Piece of white construction paper
- White crayon
- Small tin of watercolors
- Clean, dry pebbles and gold spray paint…OR a small bag of gold-wrapped chocolate “coins”
