Whether you are Irish or not, the days leading up to St. Patrick’s Day can be a great time to learn about and celebrate Irish culture! There are many things that children may find interesting about this small but proud part of the world.

In addition to facilitating a fun St. Patrick’s day activity, this play dough mat inspires a lot of creativity! Children will enjoy making coins to fill the treasure pot, creating birds and clovers, and filling in the colors of the rainbow with play dough.  Bonus: if your children haven’t learned about ROY G. BIV (the color order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet), then this activity would also be a great tool to teach about the color spectrum!

While it’s not necessary to laminate this printable in order to enjoy it, you will probably want to do so if you plan to use it more than once. Or you can print multiple copies. 

We hope you and your children have a lot of fun creating a story to go with this printable! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

May you have all the happiness

And luck that life can hold

– And at the end of your rainbows

May you find a pot of gold.

~ Old Irish Blessing
