St. Patrick's Day Fun

Seamus O'Flynn caused much havoc in our tiny kinder classroom today! The kids decided he was both a tricky/sneaky leprechaun and a nice one too. :)

He made a MESS of the bathroom, decorating it with streamers, green glitter, green toilet water, and leaving a footprint trail through the classroom to the toilet! 

He also hung streamers from the smartboard (where he left us a few notes throughout the day) and the door. 

Seamus even left streamers and green glitter on our tables--along with some smarties because we're so smart!

When we were at lunch, he tried out our traps, and left us some chocolate coins. While we were at music, Seamus tried out our traps again, and left us our last note with coin clues to follow to find his pot of gold. 
Turns out he wasn't willing to share his gold with us since we didn't actually catch him, but he did leave some goodies in his pot...necklaces, chocolate coins, and tattoos!

We had a lovely snack that Seamus had left us in the morning...cupcakes and green Hi-C. And our classroom aide also brought in some guacamole chips for us to try. Oh, and Seamus even got into our milks somehow! Some of the kiddos weren't so sure they wanted to try green milk, but it turns out it tastes the same as white milk. YUM!

Check out our cool and creative leprechaun traps! The kids made them with their families :) 

We also did a leprechaun writing piece, but we ran out of time to do the corresponding that will have to be posted tomorrow. And, of course, don't forget the "Lucky Charms" sort & graph and There Was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Clover! Fun, fun, fun! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
