  1. I love the Eric Carle inspired shamrock! We actually got to visit his museum and see how he makes his illustrations.

  2. I love craft and paint activities that I can do with the kids. I’m so excited to get to that point to be able to do that with mine 🙂 Thanks for sharing this project with us.

  3. I love this. I have not had time to come up with any St. Patricks Day activities for my little one, this is perfect and I have everything we need already unpacked!! Tomorrow’s activity for sure.
