We started off the month of March with some easy to put together activities.
The first one is my favorite because it can be used over and over throughout the month. I cut out some shamrocks and a couple black pots. I wrote numbers on them that I knew would be more difficult for Brooklynn. I bought some gold coins at The Dollar Store and BOOM! You have the easiest counting activity!
I have been trying to incorporate patterns each week. This week I just cut out shamrocks and had her make a pattern. Once she showed me the pattern she had to glue them onto a paper. It was too easy for her, I think it’s time we do patterns with 3 colors now.
This activity was waaay too easy for her but it was more of a transitional activity while I got a messy activity set up. This is great if you have a child who is learning colors. I drew 3 different colors on a paper (could do more) and cut out the same colored shamrocks. She had to color sort the shamrocks to the corresponding circle.
This last one she had a lot of fun with. I watered down some glue in a container so she could “paint” with it. I gave her a white shamrock, green paper (we used construction paper and scrapbook paper) as well as foam stickers and let her get creative with the shamrock.
*Note: we used thin paper for the white shamrock. I would suggest something more like cardstock.
