St. Patrick’s Day Ideas

Keep having fun with the kids and have them learn and develop by adding in even more St. Patrick’s Day ideas. We’ve got some great ones to get you started.

First, are books. Reading aloud to children is a great way for them not only to learn about the world around us but also to improve their skills in reading. It also helps build communication and focus better too.

Add in some of the most popular St. Patrick’s Day books:

Pete The Cat: The Great Leprechaun Chase is a must-have for Pete the Cat fans! Join Pete as he tries to catch an elusive leprechaun.

How To Catch A Leprechaun is a silly book that’s, you guessed it, about catching a leprechaun! Read this book and then let your kiddos build their own trap and start a family tradition.

There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Clover is another book kids can’t get enough of. See what the old lady is doing this St. Patricks’ Day!
