St. Patrick’s Day looks a little different than in previous years. Gone are the days of all-day pub crawls and here are the days of all days arts and crafts and baking. Here is a list of some fun St. Patrick’s Days activities for toddlers.
St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Toddlers
- Cork Painted Rainbow – this is the perfect activity because you most likely have all of the materials…I mean what parent doesn’t have unused corks?! If you don’t have corks, you can totally use bottle caps just maybe hot glue a handle or you can use these Bristle Blocks Stackadoos too! I use this Crayola Washable Paint too, it’s washable and non-toxic.
- Lucky Gold Hunt – This is a great non-art activity for both the littles and slightly older kids. It’s super simple to set up and there is basically no clean-up.
- Gather your materials: gold coins; these pirate-themed ones are great because you can reuse them in the summer months for treasure hunting sensory bins! Green construction paper & a black marker.
- Trace the number of coins you want them to find; personalize this to your child, you can do as many or a little as you want.
- Hide the coins; for the littler ones, hide in plain view, and when they find them let them place on the green paper. Once all are found, have them count out the coins & start all over again!
- Texture Collage Shamrock
- Shamrock Treats – Check out my post here on these awesome treats that your littles can actually help out with!
- Melting Treasure – this is a super easy one, grab those gold coins and an ice mold, we have these square & circle ones. Place the coins in the molds, fill them with water & put them in the freezer for a few hours. Once they are ready, take them out and let the littles play around with them.
- Green Playdough – Check out my post here on the homemade playdough recipe I’ve used.
- Green Scavenger Hunt
- Shamrock Potato Printing – Another super easy one, cut some potatoes in 1/2 and then using a cookie cutter shaped like a shamrock, like this one here (it has multiple sizes so it’s perfect for other activities as well).
- Hunting for Gold Sensory Bin – This is a favorite in our house, check out my post here to see how I get this done.
