Once Valentine’s Day is wrapping up, we can’t wait to move on to St. Patrick’s Day! My son’s obsession is to catch a leprechaun. I do think he believes they are real. Apparently they left him gold coins in his leprechaun trap last year. So of course, we must have St Patricks Day science activities to take advantage of this fun day.

Plus we have a fun St. Patrick’s Day parade just a couple towns over, so it’s a pretty important day here complete with a road race.
