Quick and Easy St Patricks Day Games
As I mentioned in past posts, this week I’ve been entertaining a sick 4-year-old. We’ve made some fun food ideas like our Rainbow snack and Shamrock cookies, but I wanted to do something fun to entertain him so he wasn’t totally absorbed in the television or Ipad. I had him help me try out these two St Patricks Day games.
Let’s Roll a Leprechaun
We made up a game that we named “Let’s Roll a Leprechaun”. This was inspired by the game “Roll a Pumpkin” from Happy Home Fairy that my boys played over and over and over at Halloween time.
The picture is self explanatory but basically, you take turns rolling dice and based on what you roll you are able to add a feature to your leprechaun or for a twist if you roll an 11 you have to switch papers with another person. (My 4-year-old was absolutely NOT giving up his leprechaun so you can always leave it out or change #11. My older boys thought it was fun.) The first person to finish their leprechaun wins.

We played this tonight for family night and I love the leprechauns we ended up with. The names on their papers are what they named their leprechauns. We have Joe, Clover and Ernie.
I’m pretty sure Ernie is my favorite! lol! I especially love how his rainbow goes through his hat and looks like hair. Love it!
Second is a St Patrick’s Day word search. I absolutely loved word searches as a kid and I still do. I found this great website A to Z Teacher Stuff that allows you to make word searches and other types of worksheets online and then print them out. I saw that they had a feature to make the word search look like different shapes and they had a clover! Perfect for St Patricks Day games.
