With Tinker’s birthday coming up we’re not quite ready to pull out our St. Patrick’s Day activities yet, but I did find a couple things tucked away from last year’s fun that I thought you would enjoy. Today I’m sharing our St. Patrick’s Day play dough. It’s full of rainbows and gold for your little ones to enjoy.

To create the invitation to play set the play dough out with:
- Glass gems with green and gold tones
- Pony beads in a rainbow of colors
- Pom poms in a rainbow of colors
- Gold coins
All of the kids played with the play dough. Lovey especially enjoyed making rainbows with the pom poms and pony beads. Big Buddy preferred making big piles of gold.
Are you starting any St. Patrick’s Day activity yet? What do your kids enjoy most?
