And the next holiday... St. Patrick's Day. I have no Irish heritage (although my mom's finding that maybe we do as she uncovers more family history) but Jed's family does. His mom makes cabbage and corned beef for St. Paddy's Day. I'm not such a fan of corned beef, so I'm thinking we'll have to come up with some other Irish food... like baked potatoes. See, I'm keeping with the Irishness of the holiday... sort of.
While I'm busily catching up after basically a week and a half of Spring Break with no homeschool happening, take a look at all these great St. Patrick's Day crafts and foods:
at Make and Takes
at The Crafty Crow
at Family Fun
from my own archive
at Tangled and True
at Rookie Cookie green pancakes
at Make It Do
at Baking Bites
And consider reading something by Irish writers, Cecelia Ahern*, Maeve Binchy**, James Joyce***, Bram Stoker****, or Oscar Wilde*****.
*I haven't read her newest book, but I've enjoyed all the ones I've read.
**I've only read The Glass Lake, but enjoyed it.
***I don't think I've ever read anything by James Joyce, but I should.
****My book club in Kansas read Dracula and I was surprised by how much I really enjoyed it.
*****I've never read anything by Oscar Wilde (that I can remember), but I greatly enjoyed seeing the plays of The Importance of Being Ernest and An Ideal Husband.
