Here are my few attempts to be a fun mom and make it a memorable St. Patty's Day for the kiddos:
We started the day with a "Leprechaun Bath".
We got dressed in our green outfits.
In the afternoon I checked all my friend's blogs and asked Kami for some fun ideas because she always seems to come up with some great holiday fun. She sent me to this website that had all sorts of ideas. I decided to try the food coloring in the toilet... Bad Idea!!
Jane went to use the potty and was a little freaked out that it was green. I told her that Leprechaun's sneak into people's houses to make sure they are wearing green and if they are then he leaves. I said he must have had to use the potty while he was here and forgot to flush. She laughed, got brave, and flushed the toilet.
So I did it again. When she went to use the potty again she ran out of the bathroom screaming and crying in sheer terror. It took me about 15 minutes to calm her down. That's really gotta help the potty training issue:)
After FHE we had Leprechaun floats (lime sherbet w/ Sprite)
And green sugar cookies.
All in all it was a pretty memorable and fun St. Patrick's Day.
