It's St. Pat's Day and Easter this month!
March 12, 2013
March, 2013 - Edition #132

Two holidays this month! At the end of this week, we have St. Patrick's Day. It doesn't matter if you're Irish or not, have fun celebrating!

Then, at the end of the month, we have an early Easter. I have a fun project you can do for Easter.


Saint Patricks Day Party Ideas

Saint Patrick's Day is on a Sunday this year, so if you're not a weekend provider you'll have to choose Friday or Monday to celebrate with the daycare kids. I have meal ideas, games, coloring sheets, craft projects and more to help plan out your day.

Recipe: Corned Beef and Cabbage

I have an Irish husband who would love for me to make the traditional St. Patricks Day meal of Corned Beef and Cabbage. I found this recipe on and I have it bookmarked to give it a try this year.

Easter Egg Caterpillar

I'm not sure what caterpillars have to do with Easter, but the eggs are plastic Easter eggs and are available in the stores now. You can either make this as an Easter craft or buy the eggs and bookmark the project for an insect unit.

Makeover of the Daycare Provider Page

I am so excited to share my new Daycare Provider Page with you. So many new things have been added to the site since I first built this website page that I felt like it was hard to find things. With the makeover of the page, I think it will be easier for you!

Take a look at the Daycare Provider Page and then let me know what you think!

Sample Daycare Menus
