Books We Read:

Flannel Story: Leprechaun, Leprechaun, What Do You See?
Check out this adorable felt story HERE.
Crafts: We made Rainbow/Shamrock Pinwheels and "Find Your Leprechaun Name" Crafts today from Oriental Trading. My pinwheel is missing its handle because one kit was "straw-less" so i had to give mine away. It was a great craft though!
Lucky Leprechaun Scavenger Hunt: Found this idea HERE with a free printable!
I hid leprechaun related items around the room. If the kids found each item on their checklist, they got a lucky bracelet and/or some Pot of Gold candy (from Oriental Trading, of course!)
I gave them some hints before we started:
Something Green could be a balloon, a butterfly or an owl
Something Irish was the flag
Leprechaun food was Lucky Charms cereal, of course!!
We had a great turn out for the program! The crafts and the scavenger hunt were the best part.
