St. Patrick's Day Games

End of the Rainbow Treasure Hunt
Make a rainbow using markers and poster paper.
Hide a pile of chocolate or plastic gold coins with the rainbow.
Create fun Irish clues that the children will use to find the rainbow.
Variation:
Use a permanent marker to write a number on each coin. The number will correspond to a prize that the child can collect after the hunt is complete.
Prizes can be small such as candy bars, a box of Lucky Charms cereal, green bubble bath or nail polish from your local dollar store.

Hot Potato
A traditional game of hot potato using a real potato. Play a CD of Irish music while the children pass the potato around the circle. The player holding the potato when the music stops, will be in charge of the CD
player for the next round.
Variation:
Play the same game using a "Blarney Stone" ( a regular old rock).

Also look through some of the recent posts at SMARRT Ideas for some fun ideas to do with the kids!  I love this idea for shining your pennies with ketchup!?!  Who thought to try that out for the first time?  Anyway, if you want to see what to do...check it out HERE.
