If you have a small cauldron pot from Halloween--here is a great and very inexpensive game idea for St. Paddy's Day. This is a concept from Family Fun magazine that I used for our Halloween party last year, and am now adapting for St. Patrick's Day.
What You Need:
Using the straw as a "vacuum" the child picks up a "gold coin" and transfers it into the "pot of gold." If you go with the multi-pack, give each child his own pot. Whoever gets the most gold coins in, during a specified time, wins.
This kept my girls entertained for a long while. Even if you don't use it for St. Paddy's Day, I suggest making your own variation of it and keeping it on hand for rainy days!
