Fun Educational St. Patrick’s Day Activities

This activity was a huge hit with ED last year.  I chose some words from ED’s phonics readers and wrote them out on some shamrocks and taped them on popcycle sticks.  I covered an empty cereal box with construction paper and wrote the words out on the box as well and used a knife to create a slit for the popcycle sticks.


I sat with ED each time she did this activity so she could practice reading the words aloud.


You could do this same activity for letter recognition and matching (B-b) or to practice addition or multiplication facts.

I couldn’t find the shamrock template I recommended a couple of years ago (the link didn’t work), so I made my own sheets.

Feel free to download these free Shamrock Templates if you can use them:


You could also use these to do some shamrock fishing like we did last year:

ED did letter matching last year:

While DD did some addition practice:

Last weekend I shared the St. Patrick’s Day Multiplication pack .. It’s also free to download.
