St. Patrick’s Day Activities and Books for Preschoolers

Happy March, my friends! I’ll be honest. I don’t usually get super pumped about March activities. It’s not that I don’t like them. But leaving behind Valentine’s Day activities and knowing that Easter is still so far away is kind of a bummer. But that’s different this year! We have SO many fun St. Patrick’s Day activities for the next few weeks, it’s totally changed my excitement for March! I hope that some of these activities bring you some St. Patty’s Day  joy as well! Below you’ll find the resources LG and I will be using through the end of St. Patrick’s Day week!
