St. Patrick’s Day Craft & Game – Shamrock Ball Toss Game (#collectivebias #GlueNGlitter)

Photobucket

My husband’s family is part Irish and so my husband likes to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I try to take each new holiday / event as an oppertunity to teach and do something fun with the kids. This year I had a new idea that I was very excited about! I wanted to create Shamrock Shape Bean Bag/ Ball Toss. It was so much fun I wanted to share it with you! You can see the whole expereince in a Whrrl here .
