With Spring right around the corner, I can’t help but think about St. Patrick’s Day. To feed the love of everything green, pots of gold, rainbows, and sneaky little leprechauns, I have put together these 3 St. Patrick’s Day writing activities for kids.
Making Words | Writing & Vocabulary
Kids begin learning vocabulary and fables about St. Patrick’s Day in PreK and kindergarten. When introducing March Making Words activities, concepts, such as Spring, “in like a lion out like a lamb”, and the hype of basketball for march madness are common March vocabulary for kids to learn. However, it’s the St. Patrick’s Day writing activities for kids that raise the most excitement in the classroom.
March vocabulary words
This Making Words center is no-prep St. Patrick’s Day writing center for preK, kindergarten, and first grade. Students cut and paste letter tiles to build, write, and draw vocabulary words. March vocabulary words include: gold, black pot, rainbow, shamrock, green hat, leprechaun, lion, lamb, wind, and basketball.
Illustrated vocabulary cards are also included in the Making Words resource! They are great in a writing center, on a St. Patrick’s Day bulletin board, to label a St. Patrick’s Day classroom display, on a word wall, or in a pocket chart when introducing St. Patrick’s Day writing activities for kids.

Whether a stay at home mom searching for St. Patrick’s Day activities for kids, or an elementary teacher looking to engage your active writers, you will love Write the Room. My youngest daughter loves doing this St. Patrick’s Day hunt around the house. I tell her the leprechaun snuck into the house while she was playing, placed the picture cards all over, and hid a special treat for her when she fills up her recording sheet.
St. Patrick’s Day Write the Room
Just as I would do as a classroom teacher, I’d leave Rolos or gold coins out as a golden surprise St. Patrick’s Day snack.
