st. patricks day

i love to use the kids' handprints to make things.  
i'm happy that i'll have a keepsake like this to look at every year!
i bought 3 wooden circles at hobby lobby.
i covered them with scrapbook paper, used paint for the handprints and then drew the shamrock on with a brown sharpie.  i then used mod podge, sanded the edges and used distress ink around the edges.  next, i hot glued the circles to ribbon and added stickers.

ella had to make a leprechaun trap for school, so we decided to make one for delaney at home too.  the leprechauns were too tricky and got away, but they made a big mess and left us a treasure to find!

above and below you can see the leg warmers i made using women's knee socks.
this was so easy and i think they look so cute.  
at target you can get knee socks for $2-$5!
i learned how to do it from:
(his shirt says "I'm a McCutie"!)

we also made rainbow cupcakes topped with a whip cream cloud.
i saw this idea in family fun magazine, but also saw the directions here:
