These homemade St. Patrick’s Games are so easy to make that your kids can help you – or maybe even make them on their own depending on their ages. Not only are they easy to make but they use supplies from around your house or the dollar store so they are inexpensive too. Do you have any St. Patrick’s Day family traditions? Any fun games your family enjoys?
St. Patrick’s Day Games – Coin Toss:
Yes, I know I call this a Coin Toss game yet the picture says Coin Flip…I ran out of “S” gold stickers so I improvised. Ha! You can either toss or flip a coin for this game so either title works. Anyways…it’s super simple to make! You’ll want 6 sheets of poster board paper: white, green, blue, yellow, orange and red. Then a black marker, double-sided tape and letter stickers (or use the black marker to write “Coin Toss” at the top).
Basically you need to cut your poster boards into different heights (blue the tallest, green a few inches shorter, yellow a few inches shorter than the green, and so on).
Use double-sided tape to make curves in the paper that players will try to toss the coins into. Then white circle point cards (5, 10, 15, etc.). Grab some plastic coins from the dollar store or coins from your piggy bank and you’re ready to play!
Guests take turns tossing coins, trying to get the highest score for whichever hole the coins fall into.
Green Fluff Basketball:
For this game, I simply covered a cereal box in green wrapping paper, cut the middle out of a green plastic cup and used double-sided tape to stick it to the box as a basket. My son then used little green pom poms as the balls to shoot into the basket. Super simple and toddler-approved!
