St Patrick’s Day Week Activities for Preschoolers
As always we have provided 5 simple and easy to do activities for you and your preschooler. If you want to do one or all it is up to you but these are fun, hands-on and ideal to do together.
We have a suggested weekly plan for those that want to do the activities over the week. This is based on one of our team and how they schedule it at home. But it is really flexible another team member spends a day doing the activities as they work the rest of the week.
Work out what will work for you and your children and then enjoy.
St Patrick’s Day Sensory Activity for Preschoolers
Our sensory activity for St Patrick’s Day week is a Lucky Charms Sensory Bin for you to put together.
Your child will scoop, sort and why not help them count the coins that you have hidden among the lucky charms.
Alphabet Activity for St Patrick’s Week with Preschoolers
The alphabet activity we have chosen this week uses a sensory bin. You don’t have to create a new one why not use the one that we suggested above but incorporate the learning activity from this one.
So here it is the Leprechaun Gold Alphabet Sensory Hunt.
St Patrick’s Math Activity for Preschoolers
For our math activity, we are on the move as we count and hunt for shamrocks.
This fun Shamrock Math Race Game is easy to do and will get the kids counting and moving around the house.

Our recipe this week is to make some Irish Soda Bread.
