I have each child make a leprechaun trap at home. They bring in on the day before St. Patrick’s Day. We set the traps up before the kids leave that day. In the morning, I leave each child a note from the leprechaun and mess the room up. I also leave footprints from a stencil I made out of tagboard. (Sometimes I use green paint for the footprints or baby powder).
Cut out a shamrock for each child using old terry cloth towels. Let each child dampen their shamrock and place it in a pie tin. Give them some alfalfa seeds and let the children sprinkle them on top of their shamrock. Place in a sunny area and watch them grow. Make sure you keep the seeds damp. Cha-cha-cha-Chia!
You can cut out shamrock shapes and have the children punch holes all around the edge of the shape. Then with gold ribbon have the children lace through the holes. Can then have the children write (or teacher if young child) :
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you.
