St. Patrick’s Day Fun!

On March 16, 2012, we will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at Doodle Bugs! The centers will be holding a Leprechaun Hunt and activities that are guaranteed to be plenty o’ fun. Mr. Doodle Bug is famous for his leprechaun traps!

Leprechaun Wand
Your children will love pretending to be leprechauns and ‘granting a wish’ with these magic Leprechaun Wands!

You will need:
– White construction paper
– Green paint
– Green decorative materials
– Craft stick

  1. Pre-cut 4 heart patterns (per child) out of white construction paper to resemble clover leaves.
  2. Have the children paint their hearts with green paint.
  3. Using the wet paint, have the children stick green decorative materials to each clover.
  4. Help the children position the hearts to look like a four-leaf clover.
  5. The children can paint their craft stick green while their clover is drying.
  6. When the project is dry, have the children glue a craft stick to the back of the four-leaf clover.
  7. Begin granting wishes, just like a leprechaun would!

Have fun planning your St. Patrick’s Day celebration!
