Welcome spring with some healthy, refreshing treats! Nutritious and tasty recipes include Spring Garden Pizza, Shamrock Sandwiches (perfect if you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!), and Banana Kiwi Frozen Dessert!
This preschool science activity is great for St. Patrick’s Day! We experiment with baking soda and vinegar using a special dough mixture to make Fizzing Shamrocks. Here is a step-by-step picture tutorial of how to complete the activity, including expanded questions to discuss with the children. This activity requires freeze time, so plan to provide other activities while waiting.
