We really do love putting a little fun into each holiday, even the small ones, like St. Patrick’s Day. There are so many fun activities out there to do and we love finding a good book to read along with our activities. So, today I’m sharing 5 activities you can do with your preschooler & some cute books to read along with them.
St. Patrick’s Day Slime from Little Bins for Little Hands
This activity goes perfectly with the book That’s What Leprechauns Do – a book all about leprechaun mischief!
Rainbow Pot of Gold Craft from Natural Beach Living
This is a fun & easy paper chain craft, and I would choose the book How to Catch a Leprechaun to read with this activity (then, maybe they’ll catch their own leprechaun with their fun rainbow & pot of gold!)
St. Patrick’s Day Handprint Rainbow Craft from B-Inspired Mama
Getting messy with paint is always a fun thing to do around here. I would read The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day with this activity- it puts a fun Irish twist on the Christmas classic and is a fun way to learn about St. Patrick’s Day traditions!
Leprechaun Baking Soda Science & Coin Hunt from Little Bins for Little Hands
This is a fun sensory experience & activity themed around St. Patrick’s Day, and I think it goes great with the book Ten Lucky Leprechauns – a book about leprechauns hunting for treasure!
Homemade Shamrock Shake from Baking Beauty
No seasonal holiday fun is complete without a sweet treat, and this yummy Shamrock Shake goes great with reading the book There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover.
Okay, so this should give you some great St. Patrick’s Day fun ideas you can do with your preschooler or toddler. I love coordinating fun activities with books and getting my kiddos really into reading about things they enjoy. Let us know if you do any of these activities in the comments below, and I hope you have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day with your little ones!
