Here's some sensory bin filler ideas for St. Patrick's Day!
-green Easter grass
-bunch of gold coins
Hide the leprechaun picture in the sensory bin and use tongs or hands to find him! Target core vocabulary and following directions to find the trickster.
Play Based Activities
Hide Shamrocks Around the Room: Cut out pictures of shamrocks and hide them around the room before your therapy session starts. Find them using a flashlight while giving students directions on where to look. You can also have your students give you directions and hide shamrocks too. While searching, practice the target "where" and spatial sequencing and order of events! You can put St. Patrick's themed vocab on the shamrocks for additional practice.
Leprechaun Trap: Grab a bunch of random materials such as cardboard boxes, paper, sticks, pipe cleaners, etc. Then, use them to create a leprechaun trap with your students! While building it, practice descriptive speech to describe how you are making it and it's different parts. This is a great way to target descriptive language, spatial awareness, and sequential order.
This website has so many different St. Patrick's themed games and this one is a personal favorite! It can be played during individual or group therapy sessions. Take turns choosing where to "look" for leprechauns. You can find the game here so you can play it with your students!
