Here’s a simple St. Patrick’s Day activity! What could be more simple than coloring? Print out these free St. Patrick’s Day coloring pages for preschoolers and let their creativity flow!
With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner (March 17th!), we are all about leprechauns, rainbows, pots of gold, and the luck of the Irish around here!
When I taught preschool, we would set up a leprechaun trap the day before. The kids were giddy with anticipation over the thought of catching a leprechaun!
When the kids arrived to school on St. Patty’s day, they would see a trail of gold glitter leading to the leprechaun trap. With glee, they would discover chocolate gold coins and that the tricky leprechaun had gotten away (yet again!) ….but he had been silly and had dyed their breakfast milk green. LOL
It was always such a joy to see the looks of amazement and marvel on the kids’ faces! So much fun!
