Today is the 1st of March – only 2 weeks to St. Patrick’s Day! This is a quick blogpost with ideas for activities in the lead up to it.
1. Leprechauns (Suitable for all ages – can be adapted depending on your class)
Create your own leprechaun (art – drawing and english – writing)
- Draw him/her
- Write about him/her – what do they like to eat/drink? what do they not like? where does he/she live? what do they enjoy doing?
- use a variety of recycled materials (cardboard boxes, toilet roll holders, egg cartons etc) to create it.
4. Irish quotations
Children choose an Irish blessing/ quotation and make a poster. (art, gaeilge – frásaí)
5. The luck of the Irish
Children write all the reasons that make them lucky on shamrocks and make a whole class display.
