Pot of gold St Patrick’s day project, great gluing practice

I was looking for some thing fast, easy, and fun for Sophia to do. I figured it’s about high time she experiment with gluing things by herself.

She loved her first time gluing by herself

Sophia really likes Jake and the Neverland Pirates and kept calling the coins gold doubloons. She kept saying that the pot of gold is a lot like a team treasure chest 🙂
