As most of you know, I love easy and simple activities that carry a big punch. Add in “inexpensive” and you have me. This activity defines simple and inexpensive! Have fun with these St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Activities.
St. Patrick’s Day Activities
Here is one example, perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, using lime green jello and the concept of searching for treasure, or the “pot of gold”. Jello is gooey, sticky and full of flavor (lime in our case), and will bring loads of fun textures and smell for kids to explore. No matter which color you chose (green in our case), the color is always vibrant and playful to the eye.
- Lime jello (we used six packages but you can feel free to use a smaller bowl or fill your whole bathtub. Go crazy!)
- A medium sized container
- Gold Coins
- Shamrock, rainbow and treasure cookie cutters
- Misc items (dinosaurs, sea creatures , matchbox cars, anything the defines “treasure” to your child) you might think your child would find joy in discovering and digging out
Have fun. If you are worried about messy pick up, place container outside or on a splat mat or, better yet, in the bathtub!
