Recipe:
Green Eggs and Ham

Materials needed:
Cubed ham
Scrambled egg mixture
Green food color
Bowl, spoon, cooking pan, & spatula

Preparation:
Ham -
Place cubed ham in a bowl.  Add enough water to cover.  Add a several drops of green food coloring to the water and stir.  Place bowl in refrigerator and leave until ham has absorbed enough liquid to turn the ham your desired shade of green.  When done, drain, and cook in hot greased pan on stove at medium heat until heated through. 

Eggs - Add a drop or two of green food color to the scrambled egg mixture.  Cook eggs as usual.

Serve the green eggs and ham with other green foods such as peas, green beans, green  jell-o, salad, grapes, etc. if desired to create a whole green meal. 


Activity name:
Leprechaun Chains

Materials needed:
Green or white plastic drinking straws
String
Single hole punch

Green construction paper

Preparation:
Cut straws into 1" or 2" inch pieces.  Bigger pieces work better for smaller children.  Cut shamrock shapes about 2" to 3" wide from construction paper.  Punch a hole in the center of each shamrock.

Carrying out the activity:
Tie a large knot into one end of the string.  Have the children begin threading the straw pieces and paper shamrocks onto the string alternating as they go.  (If desired, a piece of clear tape may be added to the unknotted end of the string to make threading easier.)  When complete either tie another large knot in the other end to make a chain for decorating, or tie the two ends of the string together to create a necklace.
