It won’t be long till St Patrick’s Day when the first signs of spring start to peep out cautiously. With all the excitement of Valentine’s out of the way, thoughts turn to the new month of March and all it promises.
March 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 which are perfect to get everyone in the mood!
A St Paddy’s Party Playlist
Celtic songs are a wonderful way to get kids moving to music and working out those wiggles! They’re great for encouraging some improvised Irish dancing, or Ceilidh-ing. Remember you don’t have to be an expert to have a go, kids are perfectly happy just marching and skipping to the music.
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’s traditional to associate I Can Sing A Rainbow with St Paddy’s day because that’s where those little leprechauns hide their pots of gold! Check out the post for the free sheet music.
