Lucky Token Box
Happy St. Patrick's Day-- a day plump with luck! But one day of luck just isn't enough. So, let's lasso the luck o' the Irish and bring it with us throughout the rest of the year. I'm talking about making a "lucky tokens" box to hold good luck charms Charms like a penny, a four-leaf clover, a horse shoe, a picture of a lady bug or shooting star, an unusual rock or split walnut. What else can bring you luck? The sky's the limit as kids can see magic and potential in any object items. A regular bottle cap may be viewed by a child as a "leprechaun's lucky frisbee." If that's the case, put it in the box.
- A sturdy box
- Collage Paper
Paint the inside and outside of the box in shades of your choice like shamrock green or good luck gold. You may wish to include lucky words or phrases and your name.
Send the kids out into the yard in search of lucky tokens. If you're able, it's fun to sneak a few treasures into the yard for them to stumble upon. A jewel, a coin, a button, a crystal or even gold painted pebbles to go along with the sticks, leaves, rocks, petals already hiding in the yard.
When the luck catchers return from their hunt, ask them to share their finds and assign each treasure a special power... like a "Sweet Dreams" button or a good luck spotted leaf.
