    Feb 19th

    I work at a daycare and wanted to do something kewl for saint patricks day on wednesday. I work with 3-5 year olds and was thinking about doing something with pudding. Do you guys have any ideas about cooking that i could relate to st.patricks day. It doesnt have to be pudding but if you have any ideas that i could use with pudding that would be good. Thanks a bunch
    ok raging who every you are i do not appreciate what you just said. I am a teacher for daycare students and that was jsut uncalled for. if you dont have any good ideas then you need to not answer. No one is making you answer

    PUDDING IDEAS…

    GREEN PISTACHIO FINGER PAINT
    You can use green pistachio instant pudding to fingerprint on a large piece of paper.
    You can stop there or extend it! When it is dry, cut it out in the shape of a large shamrock and glue a colored picture of a leprechaun in the middle.

    3. make play dough (made with peanut butter) and put green food coloring in it. then the kids can make different figures out of it and then they can eat it when they are done. it’s easy and the kids can actually make it themselves

    4. Try http://www.toddler-net.com/Games_art_crafts.html They have St. Patrick’s Day art projects for preschool kids. I’m not sure if there was anything with a pudding though.

    5. There are lots of ideas at the Makes and Takes website this week. Also I contributed an activity over at Quirky Momma that involves kids using candy rather than dye to mix colors to tint vanilla pudding green (or milkshakes, smoothies, applesauce, etc.). The method I describe is not as messy as using liquid food coloring. Mixing the colors themselves is fun, plus my kids don’t care for the flavor of pistachio pudding.
