St. Patrick's Day Would You Rather Game


Leprechaun Rainbow Tag

This is a fun twist on the game of tag. 
Set up: Pick one player to be the Leprechaun.   All other players will each choose a color of the rainbow (it's ok for several players to have the same color).  Make sure that the Leprechaun doesn't hear which colors players pick.   

The Leprechaun then stands in the center of a large area with all the players lined up on one side of it.   The Leprechaun then shouts the name of a color.  The players that are that color then try to run past the Leprechaun to the other side of the field. 

The players that the Leprechaun tags become leprechauns and in the next round stand in the center of their field and try to catch players with them.   For fun the Leprechaun can call out "Rainbow!" and all the colors have to run across the field at once.   The player that is caught last becomes the new Leprechaun. 



Saint Patrick's Day Lucky Treasure Hunts

Here are two fun treasure hunts that kids will love!  Search for the Leprechaun's pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! 




Leprechaun's Pot of Gold

Make up clues that will lead the players from one clue to the next around the house, yard or park.   Hide the clues before the treasure hunt begins and make the last clue lead to a Pot of Gold which contains fun prizes such as green bead necklaces, rings, gold foil chocolate coins, etc.



Gold Coin Treasure Hunt

Before the game cut out lots of circles from yellow poster board or cardstock.   On each coin write down a number.  Buy prizes and assign each prize a number.  When the players find a coin with a prize number they can trade it in for that prize (or candy) at the end of the game. 



St. Patrick's Day Search

Before the game hide candy and small prizes around the party area.   Give each player a plastic bag and have them search for the candy and prizes you have hidden.  


St. Patrick's Day theme Charades
Print the Charade ideas onto green paper and cut them out.   Fold over and place in a decorated container.   Divide the players into two teams and choose someone who is not playing to keep score. 

One at a time 1 person on the team will stand up and pick out a charade idea from the container.  They then have one minute to act out their charade while their team tries to guess what it is.   If their team can't guess the charade then the other team has one guess.   If they are right then they get the point.  

The first team to reach 10 points wins.  Fun game for kids, tweens, teens and adults!
See our St. Patrick's Day Charade Game page for a list of over 35 fun Irish themed clues to print out.  Also includes full directions and set up for the game.
