“St. Patrick’s Day Riddle” by Linda Martin Andersen
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you enjoyed this one.
And now for the backstory about writing this riddle:
I wrote a post about ways to celebrate March… https://lindamartinandersen.wordpress.com/2016/02/29/march-forth-do-something/
and I listed a writing prompt based on Dr. Seuss. A friend recalled that she had celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday with preschoolers who were served green eggs and ham. I read her comment on St. Patrick’s Day. I combined Dr. Seuss, green eggs and ham, with St. Patrick’s Day. Like a three-ingredient recipe. Sometimes, writing riddles is that simple.
Write a riddle of your own for St. Patrick’s Day. Words you might want to include:
shamrock, green, leprechaun, pot of gold, pinch, Irish.
I hope you’ll share your riddle.
