Hunt for Leprechauns Gold

by Mary
(USA)

Preschoolers always love to go on Treasure Hunts! 


Take some time to cut out gold circles for coins and green rectangles for money.
Then hide all through the classroom.

Give each child their own pretend Pot Of Gold to fill as they go through the room searching for their treasure.

Once all the treasure has been found, talk about the legend of the Leprechaun. 

In simplest terms tell them he is a magical character that is very hard to spy and even harder to catch.  AND if someone is lucky enough to catch one, he has to show you where he has hidden his pot of gold. 

Create a lively discussion asking how each child might try to spot a leprechaun and catch him.
