St Patrick's Day this year falls on a Tuesday, so my eldest will be at school for most of the day. However, I still plan on having a fun breakfast and dinner, as well as some activities for my 2 year old during the day.
Breakfast starts off the day, and I have discovered a healthier option than dying pancakes green- check out this adorable Lucky Rainbow breakfast from Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons. I will use toast instead of a pancake though, as it is a school morning so I will be a bit rushed.
Lunch for Lucas is going to be green grapes, green jelly, a four leaf clover sandwich made from four hearts, lime yoghurt and some pretzels.
Lucas wants to take a gift to his teacher- I know that this is common in America but not sure if it is widely done here in New Zealand. If we do go ahead with a gift for his teacher, it will be similar to this one with a few green items.
When Lucas gets home from school, these printables will be the perfect homework for him!
I have a fun craft planned for Adam during the day as well, and I will be making green Play-Doh for him, adding in green and gold glitter.
Dinner will be Irish Nachos- yum!
After tea, I plan to do this gold coin treasure hunt as they boys will get a kick out of watching the leprechaun rocks dissolve. I will prepare these in the weekend so that they have time to dry, and hide them while the boys are finishing their dinner.
