I've gathered some free Saint Patricks Day games that are age appropriate for preschoolers and toddlers. They can be used if you are throwing a Saint Patricks Day party or if you just want to play some games during daycare.
On card stock paper, print out a St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt picture sheet which contains one leprechaun, one rainbow, one gold coin and one black cauldren for each child. Cut the shapes out. If you plan on using these game pieces for future parties, cover the pieces with clear contact paper to prevent ripping or bending.
Hide all the game pieces around a designated playing area. Tell the children to find one of each item. If they find a second piece of any item, they are to leave it where they find it without saying anything to the other children. The child who finds all four items first, wins.
