St Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2011

Possum is 4 years and 10 months

Bandicoot is 2 years and 8 months

Little Princess is 2 months


For St Patrick’s Day, I made a basket of green discovery for the boys.  I raided all their toys and my bits and bobs to make this up.  It included the following:

  • balls of different sizes and natures (including a glitter ball that has a flashing led inside!)
  • bowls
  • buttons and beads
  • Scoobies and pipecleaners
  • cars and trucks
  • counting bears and counting camels
  • trees
  • animals and soft toys
  • party favours
  • feather bowers

And, of course, gold chocolate coins!

They feigned indifference to it on the day, but have talked about it since then.  And those feather bowers are such a hit with Possum!

I also made some special playdough, which was in the basket to be discovered.

MmmHmm.  Gold flecks and pepermint-scented!
