|Zayit's Rainbow - Extra Special!
|Gluing on the first colored cheerio
Shamrock Hand Prints: Now, I can't take full credit for this one - Zayit did this at school, but it was so cute, I had to share.
Clover Pretzel Cookies: We attempted this one immediately following the rainbows above. Not a smart move on my part. I think his attention span was long over. Needless to say, they didn't come out quite like I thought they would, but I couldn't really focus on what we were doing either. It was a contest to see how much melted candy the little dude could get in his mouth without me looking! The idea is great and has a lot of potential, but I wasn't as prepared as I should have been. If you try this, get all your pretzel shapes together BEFORE sitting down with your toddler! Would have saved us all a lot of headache.
These are mini pretzels, 3 to make the leaves and a broken one for the stem, "painted" with green melting candy. It was a super fast and easy activity, but they would have looked better if the candy had been smoothed out before hardening again. They taste yummy!

We've also been reading There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover and we've been using printables from 3Dinasours to go along with the book. If you haven't visited her site, it's worth checking out. We often use her printables at the lunch table. Zayit loves the matching and counting ones.
