|Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, a fun activity of searching and sifting.|
|To have the children sift through a fun mixture to find the covered shamrock!|
|Before You   Start  |
|For this activity you will need a sand table or activity tub, one small shamrock to bury, sifters (or, children can use their hands) and a mixture of items for the children to sort through. For example: popcorn kernels, beans, pasta, colored or white rice, beads, or anything you choose! Instead of rice you could use sand, but I like the rice mixture for sensory reasons. It is fun and colorful as well!|
|1. Combine all of your ingredients and bury the shamrock, allow the children to search, sift and play in the sensory table for the shamrock! |
2. Children will love this fun and touchable activity as they search for the shiny green shamrock.
|If you do not have a shamrock, you could bury a coin or paper shamrock, the goal is to allow them to search through the mixture to find an object, no matter what the object is!|
