Ideas for St. Patrick's Day in the Classroom

St. Patrick's Day can be fall of fun in the classroom. Here are some ideas for all things leprechaun and rainbow!
Here are some of my favorite activities that I completed in my classroom over the years!

To begin the fun, I have a fun Family Fun Project! For this project students are instructed to create a trap to catch a leprechaun. A letter is sent home to explain the project!


Students are able to write about how they will use their trap to catch their leprechaun and then bring in their traps on St. Patrick's Day to share with the class!

I always love discussing why we are so lucky near St. Patrick's Day! With all the leprechaun and luck discussions, it's fun for kids to really think about the things in their lives that they are lucky to have and then we write about it! This little activity also makes an adorable bulletin board! 

To begin, we created a class anchor chart and brainstormed all different reasons we are lucky and things that we are lucky to have in our lives! 

Then, students wrote their own writing piece and I created a bulletin board for the hallway with a pennant banner!

Of course we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with all the leprechaun activities! This fun little leprechaun craft is the cutest! Your students can create their own leprechaun and then complete any of the activities that go along with it! 



You can grab the craft and activity here!

You can read this with any leprechaun book! Here are some of my favorites! Click here to see them in my Amazon store!
We celebrated the end of the day with Shamrock Shakes and my students LOVED them!! They were honestly so good that I made them with my own kids that night! Here's the recipe! 

One year my LOVED activities that incorporated food. If food was incorporated somehow, they were so much more engaged! That year instead of focusing on luck and leprechauns we had an entire Rainbow Day! Students were asked to wear rainbow shirts or solid color shirts! All the activities we did were rainbow themed- we learned about rainbows, wrote about the treasure at the end of the rainbow and we ended the day with a fun rainbow snack! 


For this snack, I asked for donations for our class. I chose foods that were colors of the rainbow! Then on Rainbow Day, I lined my table with butcher paper in different colors and placed the snacks on the specific color. 


Here are some ideas for food/snack options that you can use in your classroom!

I hope you got some fun ideas to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in your classroom! If you are interested in any of the Leprechaun activities, click here or the image below!
