Game Ideas for St. Patrick's Day Party

St. Patrick’s Day Bingo, Card and 4 Corner Game Activity Booklet

You will enjoy playing three fun games with your girls. With the 4 corner game your girls will be running from corner to corner burning off a lot of energy. Then play the card game included in the packet where the girls will use their minds to find and match cards. Lastly the bingo game which no matter your age everyone loves playing bingo.

Shamrock Shuffle 

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.

Irish Dance-Off
Host a festive dance-off featuring traditional Irish music. Participants can showcase their best jigs and reels, and judges can award prizes for the most spirited performances.

Ireland Bingo Game

There are 24 different Ireland facts your girls will learn about playing this bingo game. When you draw a fact listed on the bingo cards you can also tell your girls a little bit about that what each of them mean. After one game play again and have girls tell you what each thing means.

Shamrock Marshmallow Painting

This idea comes from a great website full of free kids crafts.

For added fun at your St Patrick’s Day party make a Shamrock Marshmallow painting that will be as unique as each girl that makes them.

Photo Opportunities
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.
