It’s all about the color green with our favorite St. Patrick’s Day ideas for preschool.
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.

What happens when you drop yellow and blue watercolors onto shamrock-shaped paper? This is a fun lesson on color mixing!

If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you know how we love to work on a vertical surface for some extra fine motor work. We love using our acrylic page holders as personal easels for activities such as this. Place the paper in the sign holder and have the preschoolers squirt paint onto it using pipettes.
