Good Morning everyone,
Happy Wednesday! 😊 I hope you all found my email some what helpful last night. I am sending you all this email for an activity that you can do with your children (older and younger).
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I thought this activity might be fun for children to work/play with!
You will need:
-Green paint/food coloring
-Something to stir with
-Heavy duty paper
1.Start by drawing a shamrock on the paper and do not worry, it does not have to be perfect. (The older children can probably do this step themselves).
2.Mix 1 cup shaving cream with 1/4 cup of glue and add in the green coloring until your desired color. (If you do not have measuring cups, you can just eye-ball it). Get the children to help out with this step too!
3.Start playing/painting with your puffy paint on the shamrock!
4.Let it dry for 24 hours and cut out the shamrock!

I hope this sensory play can bring some fun and engagement on this gloomy day! I would love to see how it all turns out!
P.S. If there are left over puffy paint, children can have some free painting time! They always love free draw at school 😁.
