Five Fun Games for St. Patrick’s Day!

I looooooooove me some fun games to play!

Here are 5 of my favorite for St. Patrick’s Day…

1.  Find the Coin – Have all the players sit in a circle.  One child is chosen as the “Leprechaun” and must stand with eyes closed.  The leader hands a gold coin to one of the other players and they hide the coin behind their back.  The “Leprechaun” then opens his/her eyes and has to guess who has the lost piece of gold.

2.  Shamrock Dance – Place green cut-out shamrocks all over the living room floor.  Play some happy Irish jig music and let everyone dance around.  When the music is turned off, players must run and find a shamrock to stand on.

3.  Hot Potato – Grab a potato and pass it around in this lively game while listening to Irish music.  Whoever is holding the potato when the music pauses gets to be in charge of the music for the next round.

4.  Leprechaun Treasure Hunt (Follow the Colors of the Rainbow) – The Crafting Chicks created these AMAZING Free Printable Rainbow Shamrocks for a treasure hunt with your Happy Buddies.
