Today we attended a homeschool event at the Missouri History Museum–“CÉAD MÍLE FÁILTE,” which is Irish for “One hundred thousand welcomes.” The highlight of the event was seeing dancers from the Clarkson School of Irish Dance.

The children loved their costumes and their curly hair!

There was also a storytelling time. One of the stories was a family favorite–The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day. The other story was new to us–King Puck. It was a cute story, which we all enjoyed.


The children enjoyed making a Brigid’s Cross in the craft area. I think we might try this again at home sometime, and try to make patterns in the cross, or at least use specific colors. They’re very pretty! (I especially liked Turkey’s all-green version!)

Today was another fun opportunity for learning courtesy of the Missouri History Museum!
