Aside from wearing green, I never really celebrated St. Patrick’s Day when I was growing up.
However, St. Patrick’s Day is a widely celebrated holiday in the US and other parts of the world, so it is something I want my children to be aware of. Plus, there is something about mischievous little Leprechauns that sparks my interest and captures my children’s imaginations! (They *LOVED* our magic leprechaun rocks activity a few years ago!)
So, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I am releasing my St. Patrick’s Day Printables Pack for your kids to enjoy and learn with.
Note: Find more St. Patrick’s Day printables on my St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Kids page.
What’s in the St. Patrick’s Day Printables Pack?
My St. Patrick’s Day Printables Pack contains 70 St. Patrick’s Day worksheets and activities for kids ages 2 to 7. These printables pack all the fun of rainbows, leprechauns, and gold into a variety of educational activities your kids will enjoy.
Many of the activities have multiple versions so you can tailor the activity to your children’s developmental level(s).
The activities in this pack cover a range of skills, including:
- shapes and sizes
- same vs. different
- fine motor
- math (number identification, counting, addition, subtraction)
- literacy (letter identification, alphabetical order, phonemic awareness, word searches)
Here is a sneak peak at the 70 activities included in this download:
St. Patrick’s Day Printables Pack in action
I have been using some of the materials to work with my kids on specific skills. As you will see, I had my kids do many of the activities using their Crayola Dry Erase Activity Centers. That way they can do the activity multiple times and I only have to print it out once! Plus, when they make a mistake, they find it very easy to erase and move on compared to writing directly on the paper and having to erase pencil marks. XGirl started with this shadow matching activity to work on visual discrimination.
Then she moved on to completing this maze. Mazes not only work on cognitive skills, they support fine motor skills development too!
XGirl is still working on learning the letters of the alphabet, so I gave her this L is for Leprechaun maze activity. This activity is also designed to be completed using do-a-dot markers.
I have been working on phonics with XGirl. She is getting really good at sorting words by their initial sounds – a skill she got to practice when she sorted words beginning with the /p/ sound and the /l/ sound.
XGirl now recognizes numbers 1 and 2, but is still learning to recognize numbers 3 through 5. This leprechaun puzzle was just right for her to get in a bit of extra number recognition practice.
QBoy has a pretty good grasp on numbers 1 through 5, but still frequently mixes up numbers 6 through 9. And when counting to 20, he still sometimes skips a few numbers. However, he didn’t have too much difficulty completing this number trail activity.
I also wanted to give him some practice writing numbers 1 through 10, which he did using this Gold Coin Counting worksheet.
Finally, QBoy worked on some very simple subtraction problems.
