Pot of Gold Bulletin Board Project/Snuggle Sunday

Here's another pattern Jessica shared with me a few years back! For the large bulletin board accent, I folded a large piece of black construction paper in half and free-cut a cauldron/pot shape; cut a cloud shape out of a large piece of white, and cut two inch wide strips of red, orange, blue, green and purple for the rainbow connected between the two. Five yellow circles are the "gold" and I added some die cut shamrocks, some pre-printed leprechauns peeking out here and there, and "March" for fun! The students' projects include their answers to the prompt "If I caught a leprechaun..." along with some gold glitter on the "coins."

Make sure the rainbow stripes are glued down securely to the back of both the pot and the cloud, and add the coins, glitter and quote details to the front:


It's a snuggly kind of Sunday...the pre-schooler has adopted his sister's Hello Kitty pillow and Harley blankie and is curled up on the floor next to me as I blog. Something tells me it's time to head to the couch for some serious snuggling while Dear Husband makes pancakes for breakfast!

    Hi Michaele!

    We recently stumbled across your website and loved your leprechaun writing prompt/bulletin board design! We'd love to feature it as part of our St. Patrick's Day showcase at our blog, Bulletin Board Ideas! Many blogs/sites have allowed us to feature their idea along with a picture in exchange for proper credit {of course!} and a link back to their site. We were wondering if you might allow us to do the same?

    Here's a link to our blog to give you an idea of what a feature might look like:

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Thanks so much,
    Kayla Johnson
