Saint Patrick's Day and Easter

This month seems to be already a blur and it hasn't even really started. So many things are happening. Personally, I have a few days to celebrate myself, birthdays, anniversaries, closing of our new home. But on to the fun stuff.

As everyone else knows St. Patrick's Day is coming up. What a perfect time to discuss the history of none other than the Patron Saint of Ireland. Don't forget to let your children know that March 17 isn't just for wearing green and getting pinched if you don't. Remind them of the fun of a treasure hunt (OK a trivia hunt, but close enough).

Cindy over at Skip to My Lou featured a fun St. Patricks Day craft that her 11 year old son made. At Kaboos, there are a few more ideas to tempt you pinching fingers. I wish you lot's o' luck in you St. Patrick's Day Crafts.

Ahhh, just one short week later, as many of us know, Easter is early this year. Another holiday to learn from. Here is some history of this day. Here you can find how the date to celebrate it is. Here is several games. Here are some activities.

I've got to admit, I've fallen head over heel's for jennwa's site Ramblings of a Crazy Woman. Her children and her have made the most adorable Easter Wreaths, I love these heart felt Easter Cards, but don't forget these beautiful Napkin Rings, guaranteed to bring you all together at the dinner table.
