International Doll of the Month: Ireland

The International Doll of the Month for March 2012 represents Ireland.

Here are some fun family activities to explore Irish culture:

1) Potato Printing!

Slice a potato in half lengthwise (this is best for adults to do) and use a cookie cutter to create a design.  Dip the cut potato in tempera or acrylic paint and print the design on a tshirt or piece of construction paper.   Potatoes represent a major cash drop in Ireland.

Check out this fun how-to from Martha Stewart Crafts.

2) Build a Bed Sheet Castle

Castles and Celtic culture play a large role in Irish folklore.  Build a fun castle out of bed sheets and read some popular Irish stories such as:

Jamie O’Rourke and the Big Potato by Tommie dePaola

Irish Folk Tales for Children by Sharon Kennedy
