A St. Patrick's Day Party/Playdate

I had promised both of my kids playdates this week. When I realized St. Patrick's Day was the same week I decided to combine their playdates and have a party. We started out our playdate with snacks. I served green grapes, sliced green apples, green frosted mini cupcakes, sun chips, sugar cookies, and green punch. I placed a sprite bottle at each place setting for the kids. I sprinkled Andes mints, Rolo candies, and shamrock confetti down the center of the table for decoration. The kids were excited to find out that they could eat the candies. I also found some green foiled shamrock dollies that I placed under the sprite bottles.

When the kids were done eating their snacks I had them decorate green bags with markers and stickers. The bags were to put their bingo and treasure hunt prizes in.

We played a St. Patrick's Day version of Bingo. You can download this game free from the Executive Homemaker, click HERE for the game. I printed it on white card stock and changed my print settings to print four sheets to a page, which saved me a lot of colored ink. The kids all had fun filling their bags with prizes.

After bingo I sent the kids on a treasure hunt. I cut shamrocks out of green paper and then wrote the clues on them.

At the end of the treasure hunt they found a black bucket (the closest thing I could find to resemble a pot of gold) filled with prize bags. Each prize bag had a bottle of bubbles, a mini squirt gun, a pack of gum, a lucky green coin, and a few candies.

Definition of Transfer-of-Title Nonrecourse Securities Loans. A nonrecourse, transfer-of-title securities-based loan (ToT) means exactly what it says: You, the title holder (owner) of your stocks or other securities are required to transfer all rights to ownership of your securities to a third party before you receive your loan proceeds.
