celebrate st. patrick's day: make a handprint leprechaun

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

One of our family's favorite holidays -- although "St. Patrick chased the snakes out of Ireland so everyone who is even 1/1000 of a percent Irish (or claiming to be Irish at heart) celebrates with pints of Guiness at their local watering hole" is a bit of an abstract concept to explain to a toddler.

Instead, we celebrated by reading Hooray for St. Patrick's Day! flap book and making handprint leprechauns - - an adorable idea I found over on Meet the Dubiens (a new fav blog find!). The Bug had trouble with the whole 'handprint' idea. It was just too much fun to smear the paint. I think it turned out rather cute though, don't you?

Best part? I had all of the materials lying around the house. You can find a full tutorial (and lots of other fun craft ideas!) over on Meet the Dubiens.

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig!

How are you celebrating today?
