Easy & Energetic St. Patrick's Day Game for Kids!

I love the excitement surrounding any Holiday.
Even St. Patrick's Day gets my kids excited and full of energy!
If your kids have a little extra excitement this time of year, here is a fun way to burn off some of that energy!

  • White cardstock
  • Green construction paper
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Prep Work:

1. Use a small cup (or something else round) and trace 24 circles onto a couple pieces of white cardstock. Mine are about 2 1/2" big.

2. Cut them out. (*HINT: You can also use the stack & cut method I always use: Trace onto one paper and put 1-2 more underneath to cut out more at once!)

3. Using the green construction paper, draw and cut out 6 small clover shapes that fit onto the circle.
     OR you can draw clover shapes right onto 6 of the circles with a green marker.

4. Glue the clovers onto 6 of the circles.

5. On the rest of the circles, draw a smiley face with a marker.

Time to Play!!
  • Lay out all the circles on a table or floor.
  • Take turns choosing a circle and turn it over. 
    • If you get a SMILEY FACE ---- RUN to the nearest mirror and show yourself your biggest smile!
    • If you get a LUCKY CLOVER ---- JUMP up and down as you say, "Hooray! Hooray! Today is my LUCKY DAY!" 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
