St Patrick’s Day Activities

St Patrick’s Day Activities:  St Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate at school!  There are SO many fun activities to do with your class.  I am going to share my top 5 favorites!

1.  Leprechaun Directed Drawing

My first directed drawing I ever shared and it’s a freebie!  Included are simple, child-friendly directions AND a video.  You can find the directed drawing freebie on TpT.

2.  Leprechaun Craft

This is a craft that takes a bit of prep, but is worth it!  The leprechauns are so stinkin’ cute and kids love them!  You can find these cuties in my St Patrick’s Day pack on TpT.

3.  Silly McGilly

I bet if you asked my former students what their favorite activity for St Patrick’s Day was, they’d say Silly McGilly!  It’s a super cute story that comes with a doll that magically comes alive.  Each year, when we go to lunch I have office staff come down to my room and add some leprechaun silliness!  Last year, there were sticky notes on our door, green and orange streamers spread around the room, gold coins at each table, and pennies on the floor!  It’s prime, so you could get it in plenty of time and use it over and over for years to come!

4. Easy Leprechaun Craft

Find it on Teachers Pay Teachers! It’s just easy enough for lower elementary but just cute enough to get tons of compliments!

5. Torn Paper Rainbow

This is a fabulous activity from Kindergarten Smiles from her weather unit, but I feel like it would be perfect for this week!  My students love torn paper activities.

6.  Hat Headbands and beards

The beards are optional, but the hats are always a hit!  Cut them out of green paper and staple to a sentence strip, easy and quick!  You can find the hat and beard freebie on Google Docs.
