St Patricks Day Activities for Children

Help Shamus the Leprachaun find his pot of gold...a St Patricks Day Scavenger Hunt

st. patricks day activity for kids

These St Patricks Day activities were started by our family's favorite teacher. Mrs. Corcoran who was not only Irish but born on St. Patrick's Day!  This St. Patrick's day scavenger hunt was inspired by Shamus, the leprachaun's annual annual classroom visit ! Here's how you can do it at HOME!  Let the kids search for some fun St. Patrick's day accessories that will get them into the spirit of the day.
It’s a great St Patrick's day game for home, a birthday party, scouts, class moms and teachers!

Let's get started by making their Leprachaun finders!

These Leprachaun finders are so easy to make.. use empty toilet paper or paper towel rolls, with a rubberband secure green cellophane over the top.. When they peer through the end, they can still see, but of course, everything is in green! We made them the day before. On St. Patricks day morning or perhaps a few days before, the kids come downstairs to find lots of things askew in the different rooms.  When they want to know what is going on.. introduce them to Shamus with this cute free printable! and write a note that you read to them advising that Shamus slid down off his rainbow in search of his gold coins!  He needs their help to find them.
