St. Patrick's Parade

This activity was inspired by St. Patrick's Day in the Morning. To learn more about the book and see all our St. Patrick's Day activities, click here

Armed with your just-made Irish tricolor flag and tube flute, have a parade in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and all things Irish!

Reinvent a scarf to become a sash for your young reader, and add an old coat and hat from the dress up stash to look even more like Jamie.

To added even more authenticity to the procession you can play the following video of the Irish band The Cheiftans' song O'Sullivan's March. The video also features beautiful imagery of the green Isle. How much more Irish can you get? 

Where in the World is Ireland?

For a quick geography lesson (shh!), use a globe or world map to show your young reader how to find Ireland, the setting of St. Patrick’s Day in the Morning. Identify where you live as well and where Ireland is in relation to your home.


A Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, from Off the Shelf!
