  • Leprechaun Dough

    As a lot of you already know, the St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun and I are actually pretty tight. For those of you who are not up to speed, my pet unicorn, Sprinkles, introduced us. Growing up in the Cotton Candy Kingdom, Sprinkles had the opportunity to meet many different holiday icons.

    Well, this year the St. Paddy’s Leprechaun stopped over to visit us on his way to his annual “Pre-St. Patrick’s Day Vacation” in the Cotton Candy Kingdom. I was in the middle of making some play dough for my niece, and thought it would be appropriate to try making some festive dough for our Leprechaun friend. If you would like to try making some for your own little leprechauns, I have left directions below. :)

  • Leprechaun Sensory Bin

    Sprinkles and I have been spending a good amount of time with a new little friend, who I have been affectionately referring to as #MyLittleSweetPotatoPie. She is so darling. Last week we decided to take a sensory play bin over for her to enjoy after lunch– and since St. Paddy’s Day is next week we decided to make it Leprechaun themed! She loved it and I am sure if your own little leprechauns will enjoy it as well!

  • Leprechaun Snot

    As a lot of you already know, the St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun and I are actually pretty tight. For those of you who are not up to speed, I have a pet unicorn and she introduced us. Growing up in the Cotton Candy Kingdom, my unicorn had the opportunity to meet many different holiday icons. She is close with pretty much all of them and the Tooth Fairy is even her Godmother. Every year on St. Patrick’s Day, the Leprechaun comes over to our apartment and celebrates a few traditions with us. (You can click here to check them out.) One year while he was making us some of his famous Lucky Charms pancakes, he had to sneeze. He looked away and didn’t sneeze on our breakfast (thank God), but he did sneeze on my cabinet door. Well, I thought that Cupid and my unicorn were the only things alive that had pretty snot… but I guess I was wrong. Maybe only human snot is gross? Ughhh… let’s not get crazy. Anyway…. it was shimmery and had tiny shiny clovers in it! So I thought I would make a few adjustments to the Cupid’s Snot recipe and help you create some fun St. Patrick’s Day Slime for your kiddos to enjoy.
