No St. Patrick’s Day in 2017

St. Patrick’s Day was cancelled in our home this year although this is one of MY favourite holidays. Baby L. is too small to understand any of it, and E. was totally uninterested. She didn’t even want to read a book about it.

E. has been into painting recently so I can up with a very easy no-mess painting idea that both of the girls could do. (Like this baby painting)

What you need:

  • green paint
  • construction paper or cardboard
  • scissors
  • zip-lock back

What we did:

I cut 2 shamrocks out of construction paper, put blobs of green paint on them and slipped them in the zip-lock bags.PICT0054_JPG

I cello-taped L.’s on her highchair but after few poking movements she grabbed the whole thing and pull it off of the tray then threw it away.

When we gave it back to her (after having shown how to spread the paint on her shamrock) she wanted to open the bag.

E. was working on it a little while, pushing the paint into all directions, but I didn’t add enough so she had hard time to spread it everywhere. She needed my help.

At least we finished it but the interest fell from 0 to -5…

Well, I’ve learnt something today… If they’re not interested, don’t push it. Lucky I didn’t spend more than 5 minutes to prepare the activity.
