Game Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day Party
What you need: Shamrock cut outs and music
How to play: Very similar to how you would play musical chairs but instead cut out large shamrocks and lay on floor play music and have girls dance around when music stops have them stand on a shamrock, make sure there is always one less shamrock then there are girls. Girl not standing on shamrock when music ends is out continue till there is only one girl left.
Leprechaun Gold Coin Toss
What you need: Gold coins, small pots that look like Leprechaun pots
How to play: Line the pots up on the floor a certain distance from girls. Give each girl the coins and have them attempt to throw into the pots. See who can get the most coins into their pots in a set time. After they throw them all have them go pick up the ones they missed and go back to line and try again. Winner is girl with most coins in her pot at end of set time.

Just For Fun Added Idea
When we had our St. Patrick’s Day party we combine ours with a Easter Party so there was green eggs and green shamrocks all around. We also had everyone dress in green. We took group shots of everyone with green shamrocks. You could do the whole group or like we did broke each level into their own pictures to remember the event even the leaders and parents got involved.
