Easy, Last-Minute St. Patrick's Day Fun
Looking for a quickie way to observe St. Patrick's day with your preschoolers? It's easy: just plop a little green food coloring into whatever white or clearish-colored drinks and foods that you've got on hand: 7up, milk, water, vanilla pudding, ranch dressing, mashed potatoes... you name it. Suddenly it's "Leprechaun" pudding (or Leprechaun whatever...) Most kidlets think it's hilarious (& impressive), and next year (when you have so much more free time...heehee?) you can plan that elaborate pot-of-gold hunt.
