The Saint Patrick’s Day craziness is almost here. Kid’s wearing everything and anything green and pinching anyone who dares not to wear green! Might as well go with the flow, enjoy the fun, and plan some classroom activities with a St. Paddy’s Day theme! I’ve saved some favorites on Pinterest. Follow the links to see the original posts, or check out my Winter Holidays Board to see everything.
- St. Patrick’s Day Bookmarks – free bookmarks to print and give to every kid – Three choices are offered – bookmarks with a short message, with just a picture, or with Irish blessings.
- Green Drop Cookies – recipe from Disney Family for a holiday treat – powdered sugar coated green cookies – Confetti candy mixed into the batter gives them an interesting look.
- Traditions of the Day – two minute video from history.com about Saint Patrick’s Day traditions
- St. Patrick’s Journey – narrative with pictures of the life of Saint Patrick, includes the story of how he was kidnapped and facts about Celtic Ireland
