Clover Rubbings


Go on a 4 leaf clover hunt. Make rubbings with the best clover leaves you find.



Clover Sun Catcher

Can you find the 4 leaf clover?

Cut out an outline of a clover shape from a peice of construction paper. Cut out the pattern about an inch larger than the pattern then cut the middle out on the original outline. Lay a peice of contact paper over it. Have the child press on the clover. Surprise the children and make one into a four leaf clover before you put contact paper over the other side.




Catch a Leprechaun

Color Leprechauns and take a picture of the child holding their Leprechaun. Ask children what they would do if they caught a Leprechaun and record it on their picture

"It would be my friend"


Rainbow Hats

We make these every year from makingfriends.com Very simple and cute!
Rainbow hat pattern


Leprechauns on a mushroom

Cut a half circle and a rectangle out of a sponge and use it to make a mushroom. Color and glue a Leprechaun sitting on top. This leprechaun printout is from Mailbox Magazine Feb/Mar 2007 issue but if you don't have a leprechaun pattern I think this would be cute to use the handprint leprechaun as we did for the flannel board countdown (below)


Rainbows, Leprechauns, and Pot of gold Collage

Practice cutting circles in each of the colors of the rainbow. Glue circles on top of each other. When dry cut in half. Use them to make this collage.


Hanging Rainbows
Make larger rainbows and glue a pot of gold at the end.

Go on a Leprechaun hunt!




Leprechaun Hats

Paint a paper bowl green. When dry paint a strip of black around the middle part. When dry add a square of yellow construction paper cut in the shape of a buckle. Staple a pipe cleaner with a shamrock at the top.



Leprechaun Fun

It seems that a pesky leprechaun was here during the night and left behind his little pot of gold. We will be sure to guard it well because we know he will be coming back looking for it. We will use our leprechaun catchers to go on a hunt for him. He will be doing some tricks throughout the morning like taking out all the green legos and making a building. Then when the kids go out to play he will switch out the gold for lucky charms leaving behind his little green footprints, and coloring the milk and the mashed potatoes green.



Group Time Activity

One jumped away, then there were 4.

One went for a pot of gold, then there were 2.
