St. Patrick's Day
We had a read up on the history and traditions of St. Patrick's Day. Sourced our info from my Ladybird book on Customs, Woodlands School and Marvelicious St. Patrick sites. The Toymaker emailed me some lovely pre-printed pretties to make for the occasion and we chose to use little note boxes to hold info on St. Patrick and also the cheeky Leprechaun. Having consulted my precious Spiderwicks chronicle for inspiration, Katie and Ben put their imaginations to good use to picture and document their versions of Leprechauns using words, nature, sparklies (Leprechauns liked gold) and materials.
