I cannot believe that it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day already. I found some pictures of our Shamrock Letter Match activity that Big Red did last year. It was just in time for this month’s Creative Activities for Kids linkup.
I found some large shiny Shamrocks at Big Lots on sale a few years ago for 75% off. I bought all the packs they had in hopes of making a fun learning activity. I counted them and had enough to write each letter of the alphabet on them both upper case and lower case.
I used recycled Gatorade lids and some metallic rainbow letter stickers as the other part of the match activity. These were very quick to make by sticking one letter per lid.
Big Red had fun matching each letter lid to the Shamrock letter. I love creating simple and inexpensive activities for my children to enjoy. I hope you find some great ideas during this month’s Creative Activities for Kids link up. You can find a nice selection of St. Patrick’s Day activities below. Be sure to check each of these out for some great inspiration.
