You will need to paint an old tennis ball green. Set five pie tins on the floor, number 1-5. Give each child five bounces to land in the pie tins. Add up the total numbers to see who wins.
Run Little Leprechaun…
Have the children sit in a circle. Play music as the children pass around a shamrock made out of construction paper. When the music stops the child holding the shamrock also stops. The children yell “Run Little Leprechaun!” The child gets up runs around the circle once then sits back down. Let all children have a turn.
St. Patrick’s Day Is Here…
Select a child to be”it” Who then steps outside of the door or faces with his/her back toward the circle.
Sing the following song as the children are seated in a circle. After the song ends the child who was selected to be “it” then has three chances to pick the child who will be sitting on the shamrock.
Sang to the tune(The Farmer In The Dell)
