Muffin Tin Monday and Getting a Start on St. Patrick's Day!

Happy Muffin Tin Monday!
For our lunch today, Butterfly and I are going to share a Hummus dip tin together!
Last week we made a tin full of fruits, this week it's full of veggies!
We can dip our pita slices, broccoli, cucumbers, carrots and radishes in the vegetable hummus!

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

We have started on some St. Patrick's Day crafts and activities, courtesy of our neighbour friends who have included us in their fun!  Here's what we've done so far...

Using a clover punch, my neighbour punched out all these great tissue paper clovers in Ireland colours.  Then with clear contact paper, the kids stuck on the clovers.  Then covered the top with another clear contact paper, cut it in a clover shape, then a border cut out of green paper, hole punch and string for hanging in the window!

An Alphabet Shamrock Match file folder game, matching the lower cases with it's capital, using velcro to stick them.

St. Patrick's Day Sudoku file folder game (which can be printed out from HERE)!  I didn't think Butterfly would catch on to this concept, but she got it and found it easy!  Yay!  This told me I should make her some Sudoku picture activities then!

Shamrock Pattern Match file folder game, matching the clover patterns, which can be printed out from HERE.

A felt board activity, counting clovers with a poem, which can be printed out from HERE.

    One green shamrock, in the morning dew,
    Another one sprouted,
    and then there were two.

    Two green shamrocks, growing beneath a tree;
    Another one sprouted,
    and then there were three.

    Three green shamrocks, by the cottage door;
    Another one sprouted,
    and then there were four.

    Four green shamrocks, near a beehive
    Another one sprouted,
    and then there were five.

    Five little shamrocks, bright and emerald green,
    Think of all the luck
    these shamrocks will bring.


  1. What a healthy meal. And I love the craft your neighbor shared with you! It must looks so pretty when the light shines through the tissue shamrocks!

  2. Oh I love hummus.
    You've been busy - great crafting!

  3. I wish JDaniel would eat all those veggies. He used too. I love the light catcher.

  4. Thanks for sharing the crafts and learning games! Love the hummus tin! What a great idea!

  5. I didn't think A would catch the Sudoku yet either, but she did! Pretty cool! :) I've beenn making them for all the Holidays... hehe
