Students at Hitchcock Woods Early Learning Center dressed in green to prepare for the St. Patrick’s Day celebration on March 16.

There were different activities the students participated in to get in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. Stations were set up for the children to play games at and make different crafts. There was a station for the students to make a rainbow bracelet out of cereal and ribbon, a sensory station with various green items, green Play-Doh and many more.

One of the more favorite stations was a leprechaun pot full of green goo for the children to dig and find different colored gems. This activity gave the children the opportunity to get a little messy while being hands on.

After the students finished at their stations, they went to another classroom to try out a leprechaun racing experiment. A piece of ribbon was strung through a straw that was taped to an inflated balloon. One piece of the ribbon was taped to the wall and the students held the other end and had to see who could get the balloon to the wall first.

Hitchcock Woods has been working to implement more STEM lessons with the students to try and get them more hands-on with their learning.
