Beyond wearing something green or eating green eggs and ham, have you thought about St. Patrick’s day? You know, like other things you can do? And I don’t mean guzzling Shamrock Shakes.
Well, here’s a book that comes highly recommended: The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day by Natasha Wing. This would be a fun book to read the day before St. Patrick’s Day, since the holiday lands this coming Friday. This is perfect for all of those fancy projects and activities you have lined up.
This is the description of the book off Amazon:
Natasha Wing puts an Irish twist on a Christmas classic. It’s the night before St. Patrick’s Day, and Tim and Maureen are wide awake setting traps to catch a leprechaun! When they wake the next morning to the sound of their dad playing the bagpipes and the smell of their mom cooking green eggs, they’re shocked to find that they’ve actually caught a leprechaun. But will they be able to find his pot of gold?
Sounds fun. Without reading the book, you could probably think of some extension activities: find the leprechaun gross motor activity, eating green eggs sensory activity, or making a pot of gold out of play dough.
Get this book. It’s fairly cheap too. I’ll do my part this St. Patrick’s Day too… and get those yummy Shamrock Shakes!
