Here's a matching game I put together for Juliet fairly easily. I printed out the shamrock pattern match game, glued one set to the inside of an old game box and put the other set in a "pot of gold." She had fun matching up the patterns. If you didn't want to print the shamrocks out, you could make your own using scrapbook paper and a shamrock pattern.
I asked my friend lovely and talented Irish friend Megan @ When I Grow Up for some St. Patrick's Day book suggestions and she recommended these from her own collection:
I love this for a baby! Cloth books are perfect for infants and this one is so detailed and beautiful.
St. Patrick's Day in the Morning by Eve Bunting
I looked for this one at our library and they do have it, but it was checked out! I'll have to wait till it gets returned. I do love Eve Bunting, so I know it is probably one we'll enjoy.
Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland by Tomie dePaola
Though, not recommended by Megan, this is a book that I hoped to find as well, but our library system doesn't have a copy at all. Maybe next year, we'll get lucky.
And finally, a craft that I will be reusing for St. Patrick's Day! Remember our felt flags of the world? We made an Irish flag, so it's hanging proud this week!
