St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! We didn't do much "green" decorating at all this year, but I'm hoping to still bust out a few fun St. Patrick's Day activities this weekend to celebrate with Little Man. (I'll share a few of my ideas at the end of this post.)
This week, I came up with a quick printable to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year.
Honestly, I don't totally believe in luck. Okay, maybe if it's something silly like finding a penny on the sidewalk or something. But I am more inclined to feel blessed for something as silly as finding a good parking space! And lately, I have felt very blessed! Hopefully I'll be able to explain exactly why very, very soon!
Yes, this little guy is one of my greatest blessings. I have always felt like my Little Man was a blessing meant just for me. As you know, his Daddy travels every week for work. That was one of my main reasons for starting a blog--so I could connect with people when I felt so lonely at times as a new Mom and sometimes a "single" parent.
This sweet Little Man has always been my little buddy. I don't know how to explain it, but he just looks out for me. Yesterday, he carried my basket at the grocery store because he insisted on being a gentleman. He put away all his toys and set the table for dinner without even being asked. I almost cried. I just love this boy!
So I created this 5x7 printable in Photoshop and printed and framed it!
I used the cookie cutter tool in Photoshop to create a little shamrock out of one of my favorite pictures of Little Man.
All done! Now I just need to make one with my sweet hubby, too!
If you would like to download this blank template, just use a shamrock cookie cutter or another shamrock pattern to trace around a picture! Cut it out and paste it on. You can download this blank 5x7 file here.
Here are a few more fun activities that we'll be doing this weekend:
I'm going to try out making scented shamrocks just like these ones at Education.com
I can't wait to turn our toilet water green, and those footprints will be a fun extra touch! See the tutorial for perfect footprints at A Differentiated Kindergaten.
We'll print and play this Lucky Bingo found at The Crafting Chicks.
Just like last year, we'll probably have a family "Green Dinner" and get dressed up in funny green clothes! My Mom has quite the collection of fun green clothes!
I'll come up with some cute lunch--perhaps like this one with the footprints at Lisa Storms.
And of course we'll do our Treasure Hunt just one more time!
Wishing you lots of blessings and lots of luck!!
Have a fantastic weekend!
