St. Patrick's Day Countdown

My boys love doing countdowns so I came up with a little countdown for St. Patrick's Day that I think they will have a lot of fun with.

I found a Shamrock pattern on the Internet.  I used a variety of green patterned paper to use to cut my Shamrocks.
Each day starting on March 1st until the 17th I will hide a Shamrock somewhere and have my children find it.  Since they are young I will tell them which room I hid it in. Once they have found it we will hang it up somewhere around the house for decoration.  On the final day (St. Patty's Day) I plan on hiding some chocolate gold coins along with the Shamrock to help celebrate the holiday. 

P.S.  I didn't really know what the difference between a Shamrock and a Four-Leaf clover was so I looked it up.  Apparently, I should have cut out a Three-leaf clover to be true to the St. Patty's Day tradition.  If you are looking for luck on an average day, a Four-Leaf clover is more appropriate.  You learn something every day!
