St Patrick’s Day Activities

Friday, March 4th, 2011

St Patrick’s Day is almost here.  This is a holiday kids really get into.  It’s fun to be green!  Children celebrate this holiday in a very different way than adults do.  Many schools have leprechauns that come into the classroom leaving treats and causing a little mischief.  You can even try this at home for some fun.  Treats can be anything from stickers to gold coins to a piece of candy.  This is a great opportunity for you and your child to have  some fun together

  • Have green eggs and ham for dinner
  • Get free printables on line and do some coloring
  • Make and decorate a leprechaun hat
  • Play find the lucky clover  (the adult can hide, children can find)
  • Write a poem about St. Patrick’s Day
  • Check out and read a book from the library about St Patrick’s Day
  • Bake clover shaped green cookies
  • Hide gold coins around the house and collect in a pot of gold
  • Make a rainbow mobile
  • Play Irish hot potato
  • Make homemade shamrock shakes
  • Listen to some traditional Celtic music

Most of all this is an opportunity to have some fun!
