St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Preschoolers & Kindergarteners

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up this weekend, it’s important to share the celebration with your kids and/or classroom. First and foremost, make sure they understand the meaning of the celebration.

Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland and The Story of Saint Patrick are both great books geared toward children that explain why we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Once the kids understand the story, you can have some fun! Here’s some great ideas for crafts and activities around the holiday.

Start the day off with a St. Patty’s themed breakfast, such as Lucky Charms and green milk, or green eggs and ham.

Have the kids make a fashion statement by helping them craft this easy-to-make St. Patrick’s Day hat.

We’ve all heard of the McDonald's Shamrock Shake—a treat so special it only comes around once a year, but why not spend time with your kinds and make this delicious treat together at home.

Just like leprechauns, Tad is small and green too! We’ve created this free coloring page of Tad celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Print it out and have your little ones color it in—we’ll post the masterpiece on our Facebook page!
