St. Patrick's Day Activity Ideas

Hooray! Another holiday is around the corner to inspire my therapy sessions. Here are a few ideas from the internet.

Leprechaun Scavenger Hunt - I love to have a scavenger hunt whenever time allows. There are so many ways to adjust this activity to meet your treatment goals. This site is great - The Crafting Chicks. They have a cute idea of making little leprechaun footprints to follow.

Coffee Filter Shamrock - Cut out a shamrock shape. Have the student use an eye dropper to mix blue and yellow colored water to make a beautiful green shamrock.

Thumbprint four leaf clover - Think Ed Emberley. Easy as it sounds.

Great tactile activity - Handprint Leprechaun

Shamrock template - Here is a pdf of a shamrock shape.

Bell Pepper Shamrocks - Slice a bell pepper and use it as stamp.

Paper Plate Leprechaun - This is great for practicing snipping around the edge of the plate.

Alright, there should be enough ideas here to get you started. Let me know if you have any favorite St. Patty's activities. Thanks for stopping by.
