I know St. Patrick's Day is gone but as I was putting away some of the files I used from last month I saw this one and I wanted to share it with you. This is a version of the classic, Little Mouse...hiding in the color house game. I made a small 'pot of gold' out of black felt and gold sequins and the other pieces are about 6-8 inches so that I could 'hide' the pot of gold. I just had to add some glitter ;) and the mushroom material is a fabric swatch from a sample book that was donated to the library. Actually the polka dots inspired the whole set because I really wanted to make a mushroom with it and then I needed a way to use the mushroom and one thing led to another...
I made up a little rhyme I say and then the children guess where the leprechaun has hidden his pot of gold.
"Do you feel lucky? Let's be bold!
Let's see if we can find the leprechaun's pot of gold!"
