Flannel Friday: St. Patrick’s Day

March 13, 2015

For a St. Patrick’s Day flannelboard, I took inspiration from leprechaun tales and Rainbow Stew. When the Vikings raids were upon Ireland, the leprechauns hid the fairy gold and even today, guard it jealously. Supposedly it can be found in a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. In an add-on to Rainbow Stew, my leprechauns transform fruit and vegetables into gold.

Begin with a selection of rainbow-colored fruits and vegetables.

Take an apple, put in the pot
Stir it, stir it, stir it a lot.
Take it out, what will it be?
The prettiest red you ever did see?

Continue with orange, yellow, green, blue and violet fruits or vegetables and rainbow pieces.

When the rainbow is complete, it is time for the leprechaun to dance and do his magic.

Where the rainbow ends, do a little jig.
Grab a shovel and dig, dig, dig.
Pull out the treasure, what will it be?
The fairies’ gold for all to see.
