Click, Clack, Moo

Today was so much fun!  It started with the production of Click, Clack, Moo at The River Center, and ended with shamrocks made out of a potato stamp!  Some photos:

Waiting for the show to start at The River Center this morning ...
Showing off the 'U' and 'V' pages of her letter book ...
The materials for our 'Rainbow Melt' project (a pie tin, ice, and cups of differently colored salt)...
Pouring more ice in the pie tin (after doing this project, I would recommend a shallow layer and not as much as we used) ...
Then, pouring in the salt, each color in its own area ...
With all the salts added (again, use less ice than we did) ...
Watching the ice melt and the colors make rainbows!
Our potato stamp for our shamrocks painting ...
One heart, stamped three times + a green tail = a shamrock!
Painting grass under her shamrocks ... :)
