Throughout my 15 plus years of teaching preschool, I’ve always enjoyed putting together ideas for St. Patrick’s day. During the month of March our feature color is green, so we do a lot of yellow and blue color mixing activities. The shamrock shape is used often, too, and not just at the art table, but also the light table, play dough table, mixed in with dramatic play, on our science shelf — pretty much evenly spread around the classroom! I thought I’d share some of our past favorite St. Patrick’s day ideas that work well for preschoolers, as well as a round-up of activities from my fellow-bloggers.
