6 St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

I am not crazy about storing tons of holiday activities and decorations in the house, especially for the smaller holidays. But I do love providing fun, and educational activities for the kids, especially when the cost less than $2! I grabbed a pack of plastic gold coins for St. Patrick’s Day and used some other items we had in our art closet already to create 6 fun activities for them, I hope you enjoy a couple or all of them with your own little leprechaun.

I cut simple shamrock shapes from green construction paper and used a sharpie to mark numbers. Keep it simple and just have them match the number of coins to the number on the shamrock, or call out numbers and have them cover them with a coin to practice recognition. Have older children? Instead of a single number write a math problem, call out the answer and have them place a coin on the corresponding math sentence, you could also use them for writing out sight words.

Besides the gold coins use what you have on hand­ rainbow colored pompoms and chenille stems (pipe cleaners), colorful crayons, puzzle pieces, or anything else you might have. Include spoons for transferring and cups or bowls for filling and dumping.

Rainbow Stencils­ Use the coins as a stencil to make pieces of artwork as well as practice fine motor skills, and color recognition.Provide your child with a lot of beautiful rainbow colored markers or crayons to make a colorful piece. St. Patty’s Stacking­ Take turns stacking coins to see how high of a tower you can make. This is great for hand eye coordination, fine motor, as well as practice in taking turns­all valuable skills for tots and preschoolers.St Patricks Day projects for preschool or toddlers, Easy DIY Shamrock Craft for kids, St. Patty's day craft idea, DIY, Kids, School party idea . jpgSo Lucky Store­ We set up a pretend store with rainbow and other items from around the house. I made simple price tags and had the children “buy” items from me­ practicing counting. You could adapt this for older children as well by writing different amounts like $1, $5, $10, and $20 on the coins and tags, make change and add more than one item. ( You may need more than one bag of coins for this).

Tuck coins so they peek out from under potted plants and rugs,In the refrigerator, taped to the fridge, etc. Have them count them off as they find each one. Give hotter and warmer clues as they search.

What other activities can you come up with for this inexpensive item?
