St. Patrick's Day in the Classroom

I was given the opportunity to review these products in exchange for my honest review of them.

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.

To start I found rainbow crayons! The kids will love drawing rainbow pictures. The crayons are bright, colorful and a good consistency. They held up well as I colored and did not crumble. If you hold them straight up and down you get all of the colors together. If you hold them on the sides you can use the outer colors.

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.
