It’s St. Patrick’s Bath Week!! Brought to you by In Lieu of Preschool / Parent Teach Play and Growing a Jeweled Rose / Bath Activities for Kids.
Can you believe that tricky leprechaun came back for a 3rd bath time this week??
This time he left a secret message floating in the bath for the kids and we had so much fun with rainbows!
To uncover the secret message, first the kids had to do some rainbow writing by tracing over the words in multiple colors.
In my experience, tracing isn’t very exciting, but if you call it RAINBOW WRITING and the kids get to use multiple pretty colors to trace the letters, they will do it multiple times eagerly.
It’s one simple way to make learning FUN!
So both kids traced the letters of the words left by the leprechaun several times using bath crayons.
Once they had all the words completed, the kids stuck them on the wall of the tub, but the sentence didn’t make any sense.
Since the bath time was focused on RAINBOWS, we tried putting the words in rainbow color order…
…and suddenly we had decoded the leprechaun’s secret message: “Happy St. Patrick’s Day from your friend.” The kids LOVED it!!
After the decoding was done, the kids simply had fun playing with all the rainbow items in the orange colored and orange-scented water!!
I have it on strictest authority the leprechaun used orange extract to add the scent and food coloring for the color!
So, in the end, that tricky leprechaun became our friend. The rainbow secret message bath was the last time we saw our new friend. Maybe he’ll come back to visit next St. Patrick’s Day!!
