I have searched around the web and gathered up some of my favorite “St. Patricks Day Crafts For Kids” to share with all of you.
If you missed my post on not quite feeling like and A+ mom – maybe you should head over there first. Whether you do one or none of these – you are still awesome! The real joy and contentment of motherhood comes from knowing that we alone are enough to our kids – no crafting required!
Still feeling crafty? Here are some of my St.Patricks Day Kids Crafts in no particular order;
Don’t feel like getting that messy? How about just a “Thumb Print”?
I simply love this little gem of a leprechaun from crafty morning …I think my kids are going to have a blast making this guy.
After teaching a mosaic arts class last semester – I have some big plans for these St. Patricks Day Mosaic Shamrocks from Happiness is Homemade… I’m thinking they will make the perfect bunting decor for our homeschool window.
So I am anxiously awaiting my boxes of school supplies for Skinny Minnie! I made my first purchase yesterday from Discount School Supply! I was like a kid in a candy store clicking on all of the items (some for this year some for next). I will likely be putting in another order after I have saved some more money. I think I have a new addiction to buying educational items 🙂
After much contemplating, pondering, reading, and anxiety over what is “right” we have finally decided A is staying home for school again next year. Thanks to all of you veteran homeschoolers who have been so patient with me and my millions of questions.
This will likely be a year by year decision on our families behalf but it is truly a decision that I feel shouldn’t be taken lightly (despite the age of the child). I get a lot of “she is only 31/2 don’t worry” I just smile, nod, or bite my tongue because it is obvious to me at that point this individual does not share the same views on education as I do. My personal belief is that education and learning starts from the time a child is born. Parents are a child’s first and most important educator. No-one knows your child and his or her needs better than you!
