  • Use the craft during March centers to practice fine motor skills.
  • Place the craft in morning work tubs to start the day.

Crafts are always a great option with young kids! They foster creativity and help little hands grow. We love doing them for all seasons, occasions, and times of day.

Fun St. Patrick’s Day Read Alouds for Kids

Reading before and after a craft is my favorite thing. It excites the kids for a fun activity and ties everything together during a lesson. As you plan your March lessons, consider using these titles to get kids in the St. Patty’s Day mood!

These titles will make your kids giggle and smile as you read them aloud. Once you read them, place them in centers or your library for them to look at again during the month.
