I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day! My family always had lots of homeschool St. Patrick’s Day fun, and St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday to celebrate in a school, too. It’s hard not to have fun with shamrocks, rainbows, leprechauns, Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day history, and green activities!

Here are some great Montessori-inspired St. Patrick’s Day Activities from Counting Coconuts. The photo is of a St. Patrick’s Day 1-5 counting activity. Any type of number cards and identical St. Patrick’s Day objects could be used.
For an older child, you could use the numerals 1-10 and 55 shamrocks (or any St. Patrick’s Day object). You could have your child lay out the numerals in order and count out the St. Patrick’s Day objects in rows of two, placing a left-over object in the center below the bottom row. That way, your child can learn odd and even. Here are directions for presenting cards and counters from Info Montessori.
