I love to celebrate holidays in the classroom. St. Patrick's Day is always a fun one! My students love to wear green because they usually have to wear a uniform. Plus it is always fun to throw glitter everywhere and trash the classroom because of that sneaky leprechaun.
This year my leprechaun is bringing some great treasures thanks to Oriental Trading . I love all of the cute gold coins and even the edible spray painted Oreos that I did that year but, this year I have so many food allergies I went food free.
Next we used shamrock shaped scratchers. The students will love scratching off the black to reveal the rainbow colored design underneath. They come with a string to hang them and a scratch pen. The scratch pen has two different sides so the design can have different shapes.
Then everyone will receive green plastic beads. They come in multiple shades of green and the students can wear them with their green clothes.
I even hung up some shamrock shaped lights. My students love these! I hung them around my temporary white board and it looks so cute! (Please excuse my terrible white board!!!)
If you're looking for some great treasures and decorations for St. Patrick's Day in your classroom, I recommend that you check out Oriental Trading.
