Sensory-Friendly Saint Patrick’s Day Activities for Kids
Here are a few sensory-friendly activities that you can create with your child as you prepare to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. These activities are great for your child’s development and they are adaptable to their needs and interests.
This super-easy craft will help your child finetune their motor skills! All you need is green glitter gravel (or dyed epsom salts), fabric shamrocks, and kid-friendly fine motor tools. Put the materials together in a bin and allow your child to explore.
Delicious and fun! All you need is plain gelatin packets (4 per color), food coloring, spoons, a pot, measuring cups, and kool-aid for scent and added color. This project is great if you have a child who likes to taste-test their creations.
Fair warning – this one is messy, but it will smell great! Mix shaving cream with food coloring and make every color of the rainbow. Then, place a few golden coins in a pan and top with the colors. Your child will have a blast going on a treasure hunt to find the coins.
Take your child on a treasure hunt! To create the “rainbows”, simply cut apart colorful yarn. Once there are sufficient rainbows in the sensory bin, it’s time to add the gold. There are many options here — pennies, sparkly gold pom-poms, plastic coins, and even circles cut out of gold craft foam.
