Hooray for all things green and happy just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! I don’t know about you, but green and rainbow everything have been exploding all over my Pinterest and Instagram feeds and it is making me oh so happy! You may have noticed that puppets have been all the rage over here which is why this 5 Little Shamrocks craft and fingerplay has been a major WIN this week. I’m all for simple crafts and activities these days and these adorable little shamrocks paired with a fun rhyme is just that. It would be the perfect addition to your St. Patrick’s Day festivities! Aren’t they the cutest?

After we acted out the fingerplay several times, B loved making different voices for each Shamrock and pretended that they were talking to each other. Their personalities really came out and in case you are wondering they really are the best of friends. Their eyes and mouths keep cracking me up. Easy peasy and oh so fun!
