When I was a child, St. Patrick’s Day meant grown ups talked about something called green beer, there were Shamrock shakes available at that place with the golden arches, and we got to legitimately pinch our friends if they weren’t wearing green! There are so many St. Patrick’s Day themed activities to chose from that it can be overwhelming! To embrace the fun, we chose a few to share!
I loved connect the dots as a kid and I still secretly enjoy doing them with my kids. My technique has sadly not improved with age and you’d be hard pressed to tell who completed it… If you click on the picture you will go to the original Four Leaf Clover Connect the Dot sheet that you can print for your children.
With a word search and a maze, the kids will get to use their spelling and fine motor skills with this activity sheet from DisneyFamily.com
Is green the one color your child won’t wear? Help them make a boutonniere to show some Irish cheer!
Or for something even simpler, these pins from Spoonful would also be fun if your child doesn’t own anything green. Print them out on a card stock and attach them to a store bought pin backing.
And because we all deserve a treat
I can’t pretend that I think Lucky Charms are anything remotely resembling a healthy cereal so we only buy with when we camp as a treat for the kids. But used in place of Rice Krispies in these Lucky Squares, they also make a marshmallowy treat for St. Patty’s.
