Amazon Giveaway & A Freebie

Friday is World Downs Syndrome Day (WDSD). It's on 3/21 each year!!! The date for WDSD was chosen to signify the uniqueness of the triplication of the 21st chromosome which causes Downs syndrome.  

This year's campaign is to raise awareness is called "Lots of Socks." We are hoping that everyone will wear "lots of socks" on Friday to help increase an awareness and spread the word about WDSD. 

You can wear lots of socks, one sock, colorful socks, or maybe even three socks to represent the 3 chromosomes!

To help spread awareness, I'm giving away a $21 gift card to Amazon!!!

WDSD Lots of Socks Contest!

1. Participate in the "Lots of Socks" campaign on 3/21.
2. Post a picture of you, your family, your kids, OR your students wearing lotsa socks to my Facebook page {here} by midnight (PST) on March 22nd.

Have you got your leprechaun dust ready for tomorrow??

Well since I haven't posted a freebie in awhile and I don't have any great finds to share with you today for my "Great Finds Sunday," I have a cute last minute freebie you can do with your students tomorrow. 

Kids are amazed to see how this magic dust turns green when they add milk....and even more amazed to see that it has little nuggets of gold in it! 

If you don't have a jar, baggies work just fine! Just be sure NOT to let your kiddos see the pudding box. 

I also have my kids say this magic chant......

"Leprechaun, Leprechaun
Never to be seen,
Make me colors
Turn to green."

This recipe and label are from my classroom leprechaun kit and it is 50% off today. 

Have a great day!!!
