A Fun St. Patrick’s Day Activity

St. Patrick’s Day is not just a day to wear green; you can make it a day your child won’t forget. Plan a special visit from a leprechaun to your home or classroom. A few days in advance discuss St. Patrick’s Day with the children. Share stories and pictures of leprechauns, rainbows, a pot of gold with them. Explain that the leprechauns like to do little tricks and get into mischief. They sometimes find gold at the end of a rainbow and they often share with others.

If this is a classroom event have students bring a shoe or slipper to school the day before. If you are expecting a visit from this cute little leprechaun at home have your child leave out a shoe the night before. You can even make a special craft to leave for the lucky little leprechaun.
After the kids are asleep or have left for the day create leprechaun mayhem. You are only limited by your imagination!

Try a few of these suggestions:

  • Make little green feet print with a shoeprint stamp and washable ink for easy cleanup.
  • Make some shamrock cuts outs and place them around the room
  • Sprinkle a gold glitter trail around a door or window.
  • Turn furniture, toys, and books upside down and strewn about the room.
  • Make normal household items topsy turvy – throw coats on the floor and hang the shoes in the closet.
  • Drop Lucky Charms cereal in several places around the room.
  • Add green food coloring to the toilet water and unravel the toilet paper roll.
  • Open cabinet doors and drawers.

Most importantly don’t forget to put gold candy coins in the shoes! Leave a special message from the leprechaun.

In the morning watch as the kids excitedly inspect all the chaos this little leprechaun has managed to create. As you go through the day continue to celebrate by enjoying green foods for snacks and lunch. If you have trouble thinking of green foods just add a drop of green food coloring to pudding and milk or you can sprinkle green sugar on miniature marshmallows.
