Today, in honor of St. Patty's day we worked on counting with clovers. I made a simple little game out of cut out clovers- 3 leaf and 4 leaf. We counted each clovers leaves and put it into an appropriate pile. This used counting skills, organizational skills and sorting skills.
Then we went on a little hunt around the kitchen and den. I hid the clovers, and he found them. He has continued to find them throughout the day today.
For older kids who are working on spelling, you could write one letter on the back of each clover using the letter to spell out "happy st. patty's day". They could have to arrange the letters to build words and then a sentence.
