Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A little family St. Patrick's Day trivia: Alice was going to be named Patrick if she had been a boy. But she wasn't, so...

The kids woke up to a treasure hunt this morning. Well, Jack had to do all the work, but Alice tagged along.

He found one clue in his shoe!

The clues eventually led to the living room, where he went around and around before he found the leprechaun's pot.

In the pot was one final riddle. (Please note that I am NOT a poet, especially when it's late and I'm trying to get stuff printed off before bed!)

Jack had to rearrange the letter stones (based on these sight word jewels I found linked from Phyllis) to solve the riddle. I made a set of them so we can use them for spelling practice and word games.

Tonight we had rainbow jello for dessert--Alice said it was awemoff!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I love how you used the word gems to be a part of the treasure hunt. What a great idea!
