Leprechaun Glyph Fun & Magical Lemonade

St. Patty's day is so much fun.  I love doing all the fun things with my class.  One of my favorite things is this Leprechaun Glyph.  The students get to put together their Leprechaun and they just have so much fun doing it.  This is mine from last year.

These make such cute decorations around the classroom and align with the common core nicely.  

Magical Lemonade

Another adorable activity I love to do with my class..... 
SHHHHHH..... don't tell them is to have our Magical Leprechaun Juice.  It is so easy to do and the kids get the biggest kick out of it and they will never know your secret.  Take a cup that is not clear and put a drop of green food coloring in the bottom.  I have a pitcher of lemonade that is already made up.  I tell the kids that the magical Leprechaun will turn the yellow lemonade GREEN for any good boys and girls.  I start pouring the lemonade into the cup higher than their eye sight and then drop it so that they can see the yellow turn green.  They never see the drop of food coloring!!  Isn't that adorable?  The look on their eyes is priceless!  I hope the magical Leprechaun will leave this in your room this year too.  For some other fun things to do on St. Patrick's Day check out these centers below.
