Quick and Easy St. Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt for Kids

For St. Patrick’s Day, we like to make it a celebration around here. I’m talking green attire, lucky charms, rainbows; the works! And since we will be stuck at home again this year, I decided to come up with a fun-filled scavenger hunt that will keep the kids busy and entertained.

Normally we have some fun with leprechaun traps and Irish music, but what better way to to find a pot of gold than with silly clues and a thrilling search around the house?

These printable hints are easy to follow and generic enough to be used in most homes. I cut mine out, then glued each printable to a gold background to really make them pop and stand out.

Just follow the clues, lay them out in the designated spaces and leave a simple (or elaborate) pot of gold at the end. Magic!

This particular tiny pot I purchased at the dollar store along with the gold, chocolate coins inside. Big fan of dollar store prices!

I decided to add a little green to make it fun with the small pom poms, but glitter, beads, or green candy are other options.

Another fun idea is to make a glitter trail from clue to clue, or leprechaun footprints leading up to each printable. Adding as much magic as you can will make the hunt more memorable and enjoyable for the kids!

As the old Irish blessing goes, “May joy and peace surround you, contentment latch your door, and happiness be with you now and bless you evermore!”
