Find the Leprechaun's Gold

User Ratings: Not Rated

HOW TO PLAY

  • Make gold coins from goldenrod or yellow construction paper.
  • Separate them into groups marked 1c 5c 10c 25c and 50c
  • Hide all of the coins around the house.
  • Send the children to find the Leprechaun's Gold.
  • When all of the coins have been found, have the children count the coins that each has collected to see who collected the most.
  • Then, give each child a piece of paper and pencil and have them list the value and add the total of the coins they collected.
  • Give out a Leprechaun's Treat to the child who collected the most coins and the child whose coins added up to the highest number. (Since it's St. Patrick's Day, the Leprechaun may want to give a little treat (like one NESTLÉ Fun Size Bar) to every child who is wearing Green!)

WHAT YOU NEED
  • 1 Terra cotta pot and saucer
  • Green spray paint
  • Gold glitter spray paint
  • Rainbow colored strip stickers (red, orange, yellow, green blue and purple)

HOW TO DO IT

  • Spray paint over the green pot and saucer with gold glitter spray paint. Let dry.
