Teaching Saint Patrick's Day to Pre-K

Saint Patrick's Day has a very interesting history that most people don't realize-a holiday that goes beyond pots of gold at the end of rainbows.  I think it is important that children are exposed to true history, no matter how old!

I couldn't find a simple printable book (or anything, really) that explained St. Patrick's Day in 4-year-old I decided to create my own!

After reading it as a group the kids made their own leprechaun! 

What you'll need:
  • Glue
  • Paper Bag
  • 2 Googley eyes
  • Hat, beard, eyebrows, shamrock cut outs from construction paper
I like creating a sample of the craft ahead of time so that the kids have a model to copy for their own creations.

The leprechauns turned out great!
