the girls in our green
I got to wear my Wicked shirt today. And did I mention that Anna got her hair cut? It's a really cute bob.
But what do you do about boys who wear uniforms to school? I wasn't sure what fit within the rules, so some last minute brainstorming and a Crayola marker led to this . . .
shamrock socks. Payton also came home with several teeny-tiny clovers he picked at recess. One for me and one for Anna.
St. Patty's Day play . . . .
Flubber! In one bowl mix 1 1/2 cups warm water, 2 cups white glue, and food coloring. In a second bowl combine 1 1/3 cups warm water with 3 tsp. Borax (you can find it by the laundry detergents). Mix each container thoroughly. Pour contents of smaller container into the larger bowl. Gently lift and turn the mixture until approximately a tablespoon of liquid is left. Flubber will be sticky at first. Let excess liquid drip off. And your flubber is ready to go! Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks. Stretch it, bounce it, roll it.
St. Patty's Day food . . .
White chocolate popcorn: Pop 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels. Melt 1 bag of Wilton melting chocolates & add food coloring. Pour over popcorn, stir, lay out on wax paper to set.
Lucky Charms is hands down my favorite sugary, kid's cereal. And how cool is this retro 70's packaging? I convinced the kids that green macaroni cheese for lunch would be fun. Payton was pretty skeptical.
St. Patty's Day project . . . .
time to paint the kids' pinewood derby cars. Payton's is going to have a nifty flip top roof.
Still not seeing any green on the trees, but with any luck we'll have some spring blossoms soon!
