Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

Thursday, March 17, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Green’s the way to be on this fun filled day! Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day through a treasure hunt, Irish art, and leprechaun visits. Today everyone will have the opportunity to participate in:

  • Sensational Story Time: The Luckiest St. Patrick’s Day Ever!– Top o’ the morning! It’s March 17th, and the Leprechauns are gathered for their favorite day of the year. Join us as we read about how they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with music, dancing, and a parade!
  • Good to Go Activity: End of the Rainbow Treasure Hunt – Our rainbow has lost its pot of gold! Using your child’s color identification skills go on a treasure hunt through the city to see if you can find the rainbow’s pot of gold for you to win your very own “pot of gold”!
  • Let’s Move: Lucky Leprechaun Game – See if you’re the lucky leprechaun of the day by participating in some fun St. Patti’s Day group games.
  • Science Secrets: Leprechauns Magic will have fun with the myth of Leprechauns and St. Patrick’s Day traditions while exposing your child to the scientific explanation of each activity.

Don’t forget to wear your favorite green costume for an Irish inspired heading home parade!

Play Partner: Pretendgineers and Brain Builders, our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and child development educators, grown-ups

Grown-up Tip:  Don’t just wear your green, eat your green! Do you have trouble getting your child to eat their greens? St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect opportunity to play on the color of the day with food. Fill a muffin pan with various healthy green foods like celery, cucumbers, avocados, and more. Tell your child that they will be tasting leprechaun food.  This will inspire your child to eat healthy and have fun!
