Scavenger Hunt: Help your little Leprechauns burn off some energy with a St. Patrick's Day scavenger hunt! I love how Play Party Plan uses common hiding spots around your home like the washer or refrigerator, so it's easy to set up. Just visit their post to sign-up and receive the free printables.
St. Patrick's Day Game: This Roll A Rainbow game from Over The Moon helps kids practice counting and color recognition. You can use M&Ms or Skittles to fill in each color. Each number is attached to a number, so when they roll that number on the dice they fill it in with a piece of candy.
Time To Get Crafty: Your kids will love all the St. Patrick's Day crafts from Room Mom Recue. Whether at school or at home, these 17 craft ideas look super fun! She tells you which age each craft works best for and how to modify it if you are using the crafts for a class.

St. Patrick's Day Reading: We have been collecting holiday themed books this year for homeschool. Our kids love the There Was An Old Lady series, so I knew this St. Patrick's Day themed one would be a great one to add to our collection!
Lunch Time: In keeping with the theme of the day, this green food testing would be a creative way to get your little ones to try new foods. This idea includes green grapes, kiwi, celery, and broccoli to name a few.
Minute To Win It: Now that lunchtime is over, keep your kiddos entertained with these hilarious Minute To Win It games. They're even adjustable for different ages!
Leprechaun Playdough: This classic toddler activity can be used even after St. Patrick's Day! Add some glitter for a whole new dimension of fun. Find the full recipe at A Mom's Impression.
Art Time: We're wrapping up the fun St. Patrick's Day activities with this awesome How To Draw A Leprechaun project. Kristen walks you through this step-by-step directed drawing exercise and includes the instructions for your kiddos or classroom. This is a great listening-to-directions art project.
