I hope you had a festive St. Patrick’s Day! We had a pretty low key weekend. Everyone has a cold so we are trying to get ourselves healthy so we can enjoy the sun being out that we have been desperately waiting for!
Over the weekend we made some happy cakes (Jordan likes to refer to cupcakes as) and added a few marshmallows just for kicks! Earlier in the week, I made the littles a healthy, St. Patrick Day inspired snack. I find that they will eat healthier snacks without all the negotiating and I don’t want to eat that when I present it in a fun way for them. Something so easy as cutting the cucumbers into shamrocks (which was slightly challenging I found, but hey, A for effort right?!).
Jonathan had a soccer free weekend which came at the right time since as I mentioned before we have all been coughing, running noses, and having sore throats. Having sick kiddos is the absolute worst! Jasmine was a mess, but she cleaned up nicely for a few pictures. I also, made corned beef, potatoes, and carrots to celebrate the luck of the Irish!

I hope you are enjoying the warm sun and cheers to this week for officially being Spring!
Happy March and almost Spring! We’re looking forward to Spring so much this year. This Winter has been very long and cold. We can’t wait to be able to get some fresh air and play outdoors.
Being cooped up inside the house due to all the snow we have had in our region makes us especially thankful for resources like Education.com. They provided us with a fun and festive word search just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. You can print the word search here and the answer key here. Jonathan loves to do the word searches in his downtime. He has been very busy with school. We love how many printable worksheets they have available, their online games, and guided lessons.
Make spelling practice fun with this St.Patrick’s Day word search! Be sure to check out Education.com for more fun learning resources.
While Jonathan was busy completing the fun word search I set up Jordan with a craft. We put noodles on a piece of string earlier that morning (which is such a great fine motor skill for toddlers to practice) and then set up paint so he could paint the noodles green and orange to wear on St. Patrick’s Day. Jordan loves to paint and was especially excited to wear his noodle necklace.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
