St. Patrick's Day Ideas

I am so bad about being ready for holidays. They seem to sneak up on me from out of nowhere! How a day that happens on the same day every year sneaks up me, I have yet to figure out. This year, one of my "resolutions" was to be more on top of holidays and to do all those fun things with the boys that I have clipped out of magazines and bookmarked on the computer. That being said, here are some of the things we will be doing tomorrow.

1.) Coloring this cute little picture of a Leprechaun courtesy of Family Fun. There are also lots of other St. Patrick's day ideas on this site.

2.) Doing this number maze to practice our numbers from 1-100.

3.) I have seen it around the internet that Leprechauns like to play jokes. One of the jokes is turning milk green on St. Patrick's Day. We will see how the boys feel about that! :)

4.) I'm still not sure what recipes I want to use, but I do know that I want to make some green food. Right now I'm thinking a mint chocolate chip ice cream pie. Just a graham cracker crust with mint chocolate chip ice cream put inside it. Or maybe I'll just look for green food in the fridge....I'm kidding!

5.) We will watch the video that has the story of the real St. Patrick on it. (You can find the cartoon version on Veggie Tale's "Sumo of the Opera" dvd. Do you remember what his name was before it got changed to St. Patrick?

If you knew that his name was Maewyn Succat, you get 10 points! Hope everyone has a great St. Patrick's Day, however you decide to celebrate it!

We are going to McDonald's for a Shamrock shake tomorrow! It means breaking Lent, but I think it's so worth it. (Cause really, when is not having sweets worth it?)
