HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY continued

LEPRECHAUN PUPPET
Find a St. Patrick's Day greeting card that has a picture of a leprechaun on the front. Cut out the leprechaun picture and let your child decorate it by gluing on gold glitter. Tape a plastic straw to the back of the picture for a puppet handle. Then encourage your child to use his puppet for telling leprechaun stories or when singing "I'm a Little Leprechaun," below.
 

LEPRECHAUN GOLD SEARCH
Collect some shiny pennies or chocolate coins covered with gold foil to use for "leprechaun gold." Hide the gold outdoors or inside where your child can easily find it. For fun clues, spray-paint some small stones gold and arrange them in a pathway for your child to follow when going on his gold search.

 
I'M A LITTLE LEPRECHAUN

Tune: "Mary Had a Little Lamb"

I'm a little leprechaun,
Leprechaun, leprechaun.
I'm a little leprechaun
On St. Patrick's Day.

See me dance a little jig,
Little jig, little jig.
See me dance a little jig
When I come out to play.

Join your child in dancing a jig while you sing.
Elizabeth Scofield

 
ST. PATRICK'S DAY APPLESAUCE
For a little "leprechaun magic," spoon some yellow applesauce into a bowl and add a drop of blue food coloring. Invite your child to stir the applesauce and watch as it turns into a green fruity treat.
