Happy St. Patrick's Day!

St. Patrick's day is a big deal around here. Natalie had been talking for weeks about the leprechaun, and he had been coming to daycare a couple of times already.

The weekend before St. Patrick's day, we made these:
Pretty rainbows!

On St. Patrick's day, the leprecaun had made breakfast ready for Natalie:

Lucky charms and green milk!

And after daycare, he had been at it again! He made a treasurehunt, so that we could look for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. We had a great time following his clues.

It's that way next!

And we found the pot of gold, which was full of golden candy, a book, a puzzle, an artproject, and some new socks: 

Yay - we found it!

The whole process of the treasure hunt was so exciting and so much fun. Each "clue" was a picture of where to go next, and a small trinket. As always, Natalie took her time and enjoyed it thoroughly - as you can see on the following little video. The little present was one of those frogs with a spring and a suction cup that can jump - a jumpy frog:
