Prepare popcorn as directed on the package (do not let children open the bag as the steam can burn). Cool completely and remove any unpopped kernels. Melt the white chocolate chips and carefully pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn, stirring gently until the popcorn is coated. Gently but firmly mold the coated popcorn into snowball shapes. Set on wax paper and sprinkle with the edible glitter.
St. Patrick is said to have given a sermon from a hilltop that drove all the snakes from Ireland. Of course, no snakes were ever native to Ireland. Though originally a Catholic holy day, St. Patrick's Day has evolved into more of a secular holiday. It has been celebrated in the US since 1737. One traditional icon of the day is the shamrock. And this stems from a more bona fide Irish tale that tells how Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Trinity. He used it in his sermons to represent how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit could all exist as separate elements of the same entity. His followers adopted the custom of wearing a shamrock on his feast day. For fun ideas for celebrating with children click here. http://spoonful.com/st-patricks-day

"The flexibility the program affords us is outstanding. With other child care options, I always felt I was accommodating their schedule instead of my own."
