Many of you know that I volunteer in my son’s 3rd grade class. It’s one of the most rewarding things I do and I truly love spending time with all the kids. I am at the school two mornings a week and they are the highlight of my week.

My son is in a pretty small class (18 kids including my son), which makes it even better. If you’ve been around here for a while you know about our struggle to get him diagnosed with ADD, but once we did he got placed in an inclusion classroom – and it was one of the best things that’s ever happened to him. He’s having the best school year he’s ever had and a BIG part of that is his teacher, the classroom aide and the awesome kids in his class.

But I digress…..

On the days I go in to the school, I arrive about 9 am. When I get there the kids are usually working on their “morning work” which is either a math worksheet, a writing assignment or sometimes it’s a puzzle. The other day when I was there, the kids were working on a puzzle. It was a winter themed word scramble and as I was helping some of the kids figure out the words, I thought to myself “I should make one for St. Patrick’s Day”.

So that’s what I did.

You can download yours here (and don’t worry – it will print out on a full sized sheet of paper).

It’s a fun way to keep the kids busy for a little while and my boys both loved working on theirs.

I didn’t put them on the printable because I thought the words were relatively easy, but in case you need some help, here are the answers:

March           Irish
Shamrock    gold
parade         clover
rainbow        luck
leprechaun   pot
green           saint
blarney
coins

If you print out my free St. Patrick’s Day word scramble and give it to the kids, please let me know how they like it.

  1. I have a third grader. I’ll print this, and give it to him. I bet he’ll love it.

  2. I love that! Things like this are great for exercising little minds and keeping them entertained at the same time.

  3. That’s really cute. My kids have always loved word scrambles. They’re a lot of fun, and they keep kids occupied when they’d otherwise be bored and horrid.

  4. HA! I love word scrambles but can I say that the first one I got wrong because I said “charm” – I think I had lucky charms on my mind

  5. Word scrambles are great. They fun to do and they keep the old noodle noddling. I love this.

  6. I love word games, so funny I thought the first one was charm too. I love playing them when I’m waiting at the doctors office or on the train.

  7. I haven’t done one of these in forever! Very cute though! If my son was older, I’m sure he would love it!

  8. That’s a great printable! I’m sure my kids would have loved doing these when they were younger!

  9. I COMPLETELY forgot about this holiday – ha ha ha! I probably will not be celebrating….. But I know lots of people who will take advantage!

  10. I love printable and this word scramble is fun. Yes I had to stop and do it before continuing on reading. Thinking to print this out and have it for one of our fun games after dinner one night. While drinking some mint green shakes.

  11. What a fun fun idea! I can’t wait to print this out and share it with my kids.

  12. I love incorporating fun holiday stuff in an educational way. My kids are too young for this but really cute!

  13. This would make a really a nice game for St. Patrick day. It can be challenging and educational.

  14. Awe I’m sure your kiddos loved doing these! And I’m sure there are lots of mamas that could use these printables!

  15. My kid it was off for spring break so I’m trying to think of creative things that he can do that do not involve the computer or video games. I think I might print this one off and let him play this game. It looks like something he would like.

  16. Those printables are awesome! It would really make good activities for the older children. Thank you for sharing them. I’m printing out a few and give them to my nieces. They’ll love it

  17. This is a really cute word scramble! I bet my girls would love to take this to school for a St Patrick’s Day party game!

  18. When I was a teacher my students thought that word scrambles and word searches were the greatest things ever. This is great.

  19. Word scrambles are always fun to solve. I did try those scrambles and to be honest I got stuck on some words. This is a really fun activity for kids and it also improves mental concentration and skills.

    • I got stuck on one word too. I kept trying to figure out what Sonic had to do with St. Patrick’s Day! Turns out the answer was coins.

  20. How fun is this?! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  21. My boys would love this. I will print this for them.

  22. I love things like this, it really works the brain to see outside the regular box! I got all but Shamrock and Irish

  23. I think it’s wonderful that you volunteer at your son’s school. My son was just diagnosed with severe OCD at the end of December. His teacher last year bullied him to a pulp so he’s scared of school as a whole – his current teacher is a gem but it’s hard for her to fully understand what it is he’s going through plus work with him and 19 other students.
    I like little printable activities like these – it keeps my son’s busy mind focused so thank you for sharing an Irish themed one!
    I truly hope that they can get a diagnosis for your son soon.

  24. It’s awesome that you volunteer at your son’s school. I was finally able to go to my son’s class and read on Dr. Suess Day, it made me realize that I need to get out there more often. Thank you for the printable!

  25. This is amazing. The kids will enjoy doing this word scramble. To be honest I thought the first word was “charm” not March…Guess it can be both 🙂
