Zachary and his class made leprechan traps at school this week, and the kids are busy figuring out if there really is such a thing. Good think Zack has an older sister to dissuade him from believing in all that fairy stuff! Only the tooth fairy is real, apparently.
My memories of St. Patrick's Day are of wearing green (when I was younger) and drinking beer (when I was older). Have some fun with the various Bay Area celebrations this Tuesday. I'll highlight one:
Habitot's Shamrock Celebration Day includes traditional Irish folk music by the Shamrock Ceilidh Band from 10:30 am to noon on Tuesday. Kids can make a shamrock crown in the art studio, and hunt for hidden "gold" throughout the museum from 10 a.m. to noon.
If you'd like to see more happenings, Lydie of Travel is More Fun with Kids has an extensive listing (plus explanations of the holiday) on her blog. Check it out!
