St. Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt – Free Printable

I wanted to create a fun activity to do with Connor this month that was related to St. Patrick’s Day and will also help him learn to follow directions a little better.

So I created a scavenger hunt! To incorporate St. Patrick’s Day, I put the clues on 4-leaf clovers.

Each clue has a picture along with the actual word to help him match words with pictures.  I also created clues without pictures for older kids to use.

All you need are the following:

  • The clues.  Feel free to use the ones I’ve already made.
  • Green paper to print the clues on (optional)
  • Gold coins or a prize
  • Black pot (optional)


  • Print out the clues provided on green paper or have your child color them before you play.
  • Hide clues 2-18 around the house and place a pot of gold (the prize) at the location of your last clue.  You can choose to do all 18 clues or stop at any number depending on your child’s age and attention span:)  My two year old could probably only handle about 8 or 10 before he wanted his pot of gold.
  • You will want to place the clues according the next clues picture or description.  Ex.  Clue 1 is a table, so you will want to place clue 2 on or under a table.  Then they will know to look for clue 3 near the refrigerator, and etc.
  • Provide you child with the first clue.
  • Final step:  Enjoy watching your child or children find the pot of gold!

I also put the clues in regular boxes so they can be used all year long.  You can also cut the clue number off each card if you want to switch the clues around the next time you play.

Just make sure you have fun and enjoy the pot of gold at the end!!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoy this activity!

    I think that everything composed made a bunch of sense. But,
    what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?
    I am not suggesting your information is not solid, but suppose you added a post title that makes people want more?
    I mean “St. Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt – Free Printable” is kinda vanilla.

    You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.
