I cut out 5 pots of gold from black construction paper. Then I cut out some "gold" from yellow paper. I took some mailing labels that I had and wrote the numbers 1-5 on them. I also used a square hole punch to cut out green "leprechaun" squares. I told the kids that the leprechauns had left us a project they needed up to complete.
|The kids glued the "gold" (yellow construction paper) on the top of the black "pots of gold". Each child had 5 pots of gold.|
|These are the green leprechaun squares (using square hole punch).|
|I wrote the numbers 1-5 on these "circle" mailing labels.|
|The kids glued green squares onto each pot of gold. Since they had 5 pots, one pot had one square, another pot had two squares and so forth up to 5 (it is hard to see the lime green squares on the yellow paper in this picture).|
|This is a better picture to show them gluing the squares on the pot.|
|The child then counted the squares on the pot and then had to find that corresponding number on the mailing labels and put it on the pot.|
It really was a fun project for the kids and it took some time for them to do. I would love to hear what kind of St. Patty's Day activities you are doing with your kids!
