Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


Today we had lots of St. Patrick’s Day fun with Lucky Charms.  We checked the hypothesis that there are more clover marshmallow hats than any other marshmallow, in a box of Lucky Charms.  We sorted the cereal from the marshmallows.  Then we sorted and tallied each marshmallow.  Our results:

53 Green Clover Hats, 43 Rainbows, 38 Pots of Gold, 29 Hearts, 28 Horseshoes, 20 Balloons, 19 Moons, 16 Stars, and 189 Colored Clover Hats.  There was a total of 435 marshmallows in our one box of Lucky Charms!

SO … if you don’t count the fancy colored clover hats, our hypothesis was proven correct (at least in that one box).

We had a lot of fun!  What did you do to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?  What ever you did we hope you had a wonderfully LUCKY day!
