rainbow rice treasure box - my toddlers loved hunting for the gold and shamrocks

Make It: St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Treasure Box

Surprise! You’re getting a twofer today. Since our Midweek Musing is a little light (What can I say? I just wasn’t in the mood to go heavy), I wanted to also stop in and quickly share this fun St. Paddy’s Day activity I put together for eHow.

Sensory boxes are nothing new around here, and the rainbow variety has long been a classic.  But what makes this version special is what can be found at the bottom of the rainbow – shamrocks and leprechaun gold, of course.  Pop over here for all the cheerful details.

Question of the Day

Did you celebrate St. Paddy’s Day more before kids (pubs and green beer) or after (rainbows and pinching)?
