We had a great little St. Patricks Day this year!
While the kids were sleeping I put together a clover hunt for them. I cut out bunches of clovers (some 3 leaf and some 4 leaf) and hid them around the living room.
And even Eli was interested in trying to find them (at least for a little bit)- it was so fun to watch him discover a few of them!
And Lily is always up for a hunt!
After a while though Eli was just as happy to sit down and dump out all of his clovers!
Aren't these St. Patricks Day piggy tail holders adorable? My sister-in-law made them and Nonnie bought a pair for each of the little girls. So cute!
This kid cracks me up!
After all of the clovers were found Lily sorted through all of hers and I had her sort them into a pile of 3 leaf clovers and a smaller pile of 4 leaf clovers.
She did a great job counting the number of leaves on each one!
I counted Eli's clovers and then each of them got one chocolate coin (at the end of the rainbow) for each 4 leaf clover they had!
And I still can't get Eli to stop playing with the real clovers we bought!
It was such a fun little activity and Lily is already asking if we can do it again next St. Patricks Day! We celebrated after dinner as well- Joe, Lily, and Eli had their first Shammrock Shakes EVER!! This was a March staple for me growing up so it was fun to introduce them to the rest of my family! I am one lucky (blessed) mama!
