Game Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day Party

Shamrock Shuffle 

What you need: Shamrock cut outs and music

How to play: Very similar to how you would play musical chairs but instead cut out large shamrocks and lay on floor play music and have girls dance around when music stops have them stand on a shamrock, make sure there is always one less shamrock then there are girls. Girl not standing on shamrock when music ends is out continue till there is only one girl left.

Leprechaun Gold Coin Toss

What you need: Gold coins, small pots that look like Leprechaun pots
How to play: Line the pots up on the floor a certain distance from girls. Give each girl the coins and have them attempt to throw into the pots. See who can get the most coins into their pots in a set time. After they throw them all have them go pick up the ones they missed and go back to line and try again. Winner is girl with most coins in her pot at end of set time.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
