With all the Valentines excitement out of the way, thoughts turn to the month of March and all it promises. Spring starts to peep out cautiously and it won’t be long till St Patrick’s Day!
St Patrick’s Day heralds the arrival of spring – everything about it is so optimistic with colourful rainbows, pots of gold, mischievous fairies and a lot of emerald green! Here are two easy, little Leprechaun Songs – perfect for celebrating St Patrick’s Day!
A St Patrick’s Day Party Playlist
Celtic songs are a wonderful way to get kids up and moving to music . They are great for encouraging improvised Irish dancing, Ceilidh-ing or simply marching and skipping.
This traditional Irish folk song is tons of fun, with it’s catchy rhythm and tongue twister words, and comes with a FREE stick puppet and sheet music.
A 30 minute music lesson plan written specially to celebrate the customs and traditions of St Patrick’s Day. Older children will love this magical theme with the Rainbow Circle Game and Pot Of Gold Rhythm activity, while younger ones love the little leprechaun puppet and the jolly Celtic jigs! All the required sheet music and printable resources included.
Although rainbows can happen at any time of year in the UK, it is traditional to associate I Can Sing A Rainbow with St Patrick’s day because it’s where those little leprechauns hide their pots of gold! Check out the post for the free sheet music.
