Fish on a bed of lettuce "seaweed"

 We had a blue ocean to go with our meal.  In it there are goldfish surrounded by sharks.  I noticed one day that the banana tips I had cut off resembled shark fins.  I decided to use this for fishing.  Using pretzel sticks and cream cheese "bait."

And we had blue milk.  The girls were not impressed by this at all.




Mommy had to have a turn fishing. Of course Tabitha had to take a picture or two.  It was fun fishing and feeding Hannah at the same time.



 Purple
Amelia had:
Toast with butter and grape jelly
Pear Chunks in berry juice
Grape Jello
Purple Cauliflower (I dyed it with blueberry juice)
Grapes
Grape Juice

She really wasn't feeling well.

Tabitha's Tin:
Peanut butter and Grape Jelly
Purple Cauliflower
Grape Juice
Pear Chunks
Grape Jello
Cherry Vanilla Yogurt

Rainbow
Clouds:
Cauliflower, mini marshmallows, shredded mozzarella cheese
Pot o' Gold:
Mini Reese's cups
Red Strawberries
Orange carrots, mandarin oranges and cantaloupe
Yellow scrambled eggs and pineapple chunks
Green broccoli and grapes
Blue berries
Purple Cool Whip dyed with the blueberry juice


Daddy explaining the muffin tin to Amelia:


In addition to the daily muffin tins we made a rainbow.  I taped four sheets of printer paper together and drew a rainbow on it.  The girls ripped paper into little pieces and we glued them on, one color at a time.





And we made shamrocks.  I found this idea over at A Mommy's Adventures.  Last week Michelle had posted the instructions for these in her stART post.





We read a book about St. Patrick called Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland by Tomie dePaola. 
Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland
 I found it very interesting to read the historical story of St. Patrick.  I was raised Catholic, though I am no longer a Catholic, and it was interesting to see how St. Patrick shared the Word of God.  This book actually started out with his childhood, being sold into slavery and his call from God.  I also liked that the end of the book shared legends, parts of the story that may or may not be true.  In this section is the short story about how St. Patrick used the  shamrock to explain the Trinity, God being Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

And of course we needed to add a pot of gold to our rainbow.
