St. Patricks Day Fun

by Aubrey on March 9, 2011

Fingernails Painted Green

Last week I announced that I was expecting and starting to feel better…I think I jinxed myself.  Thank you for all of your congrats and well wishes.  I had so many ideas of things that I wanted to do to help you all get ready for St. Patrick’s day with your kiddos…I just couldn’t seem to get it pulled together.  All I could bring myself to do was paint our fingernails green!  :-)  Even I did it!  I haven’t painted my fingernails in years!  I felt like a pretty cool mom.  :-)

Leprechaun Trap

Since that was about the extent of my creativeness…thankfully I had a good friend help my girls make a Leprechaun Trap.  Isn’t it cute?  Here is a link to Family Fun on how to make a couple of different traps.  If you have made one, please leave a link so we can see how you did it?  My girls love it…now if only we could catch a Leprechaun…

Here are also a few of the many things that I see you fun mamas doing.

Check out these Free St. Patrick’s Day Printable Cupcake Toppers at TipJunkie.

Oh and this St. Patrick’s Day Sensor Tub looks like a lot of fun from Mom Tried It.

And these Paper Roll Shamrocks are adorable from No Time for Flashcards.

I know there are so many more so please leave a link so I can see what you are all up to.  Maybe I’ll get enough energy to try something more cool than just paint our fingernails green.  :-)

Likin’ the green fingernails. That is surely the sign of a cool mom. Hope you get to feeling tip top soon!

So sorry, just realized I had linked to my old business blog. Whoops!

Sorry you’re not feeling well. I was ill for 20 weeks with my 2nd, bleh!!

I love the idea of a leprechaun trap but wanted to wait till next year when my 2 year old would really be able to help design it. This year I designed a treasure hunt game where you hide limericks from Leprechaun Pete and there’s a small pot of gold at the end. There are free printables to play along at home. Check it out here:

Hope you try it and have fun and feel better soon!

Thank you so much for the link. I am honored. :) I do hope you start feeling better. Continuinh the prayers. Better weather will help, too. It’s harder to feel icky on a beautiful day.
