:o We're having an 'Irish week' the week of St Pat's. Haven't got a clue what its going to entail yet, its a whole school thing (possibly to do with linking to schools in Ireland but I'm not sure) thought I'd be super geeky (well best now while i'm on hols and feeling inspired!) and try and get some ideas in advance as these things usually are geared at the older kids. Any ideas of activiies of ANY kind we could do would be much appreciated. Musical, creative, whatver. All I keep thinking of are shamrocks and snakes....! xD

Pot's of gold at the end of rainbows so lot's of rainbow activites. Little leprechauns wearing green - perhaps a 'green' day? (not to be confused with the band Green Day :D ) The Irish flag - not sure what it is though! Potato printing. Now I'm really getting desperate - need a lie down! :o

We got big boxes, the kind you used to use to pack your shopping in at the supermarket, so - thick card and cut out a basic harp shape - cut the middle out, too, or it won't be so effective! This is really hard, so you'll probably need them pre-cut for the children. Unless the name's Greystoke :o The children decorate this with glitzies to their hearts' content, then, when dry, attach thick thread (waxed is ideal) like harp strings - you don't need too many- voila!! If you want to be really pedantic, you can try attaching things for tuning, like the machineheads on a guitar, but the ones we did (without) looked great on our display, bit 3D, and the children really enjoyed it - specially the 'friend of a friend' who brought her harp in to look at!!

HI

 

My mum is Irish and I always borrow some of here Irish CD's for the children to dance to. They love the quiet calm Irish lmusic and are able to move around the hall with control and then I put on some fast Irish dancing and they are begining to move around with control and can copy simple dance steps.
