Yes, it happened again this year too. It seems the sneaky little Leprechaun made a quick pit stop at our home child care today, and peed green in the toilet while the children were napping! For some reason that little guy must really like our bathroom, because he stops in almost every St Patty’s Day. Well, regardless of why, the children were very excited to see actual proof of a secret visit by the Leprechaun. It was an actual leprechaun sighting
The video above was from back in 2015 when we first surprised the kids with the green pee left in the toilet. of course, it was the sneaky Leprechaun that did it while they were napping. Great fun!
St Patty’s Day Celebration
In celebration of St Patty’s Day, every year we have a traditional, Irish themed lunch consisting of corn beef and cabbage. The children and teachers all dress in green, so thankfully there is no pinching going on! The kids like to play a little dress up and get their pictures taken. We also do St Patty’s Day themed art work projects and it’s all great fun!
To most adults St Patty’s Day is nothing special but for us, it’s a perfect opportunity to work on a number of different projects to help the kids learn while having fun. Certainly, they will know the color green. Of course, with my own Irish heritage, perhaps I’m a bit more excited about this day than most. The children will all have a taste of the traditional foods but of course, they will NOT be any stopping in at the local pub for a pint:) At least not for a few years, we hope!
Honestly, we’re all so thankful the children enjoy their time in our care. It’s great to see them having fun while learning about some of our American traditions and holidays as well. Also, thank you our teachers and parents for bringing the makings and thanks to our assistants for working the day as well! Every year we are fortunate to have a great group of children and teachers. We’re so grateful to have them all in our lives.
If you’re looking for child care feel free to contact us and we’ll try to help. Most of the time our enrollment is full, but we have a waiting list and can provide you with resources where you can learn of other child care providers.
