Fun St Patricks Party Games
Lucky Charms: Fill a 2-liter bottle with Lucky Charms cereal (or get this bag of marshmallows and just use the marshmallows) then tape the filled bottle to another empty 2-liter bottle.
Make sure all of the Lucky Charms are in one of the bottles. Give the taped together bottles to the player and when you say go, they must shake shake shake the bottle to get all of the Lucky Charms to the other bottle.
First-person to get all of the Lucky Charms from one bottle to the other wins!
Golden Slime: I don’t know about you but my kiddos are still obsessed with the slime craze. That is why this golden slime activity is perfect for our St. Patricks day celebration! See how to make this fun golden slime here!
Minute for the Gold: This quick game requires a little skill and some serious hand-eye coordination! The gold is to use chopsticks to get all your gold coins from one container to another in the quickest amount of time! This is one of my favorite St. Patricks Party Games!
Rainbow Inspired Games
Roll the Rainbow: Print out enough of these roll a rainbow sheets either for everyone who will play to have one or one per team.
To play, players must use one die to try to be the first to “roll a rainbow” by rolling the number on the die associated with a color on the rainbow. You can get full rules and details here.
Pop the Rainbow: Color and FUN this game has it all! I love everything about this St. Patricks party game. The goal is simple, just like your traditional balloon popping carnival game, throw your dart, pop your balloon, and win a prize!
Rainbow Relay: For this game, you will need rainbow-colored candy, paper plates, straws, and plastic cups. Give each team one plate of candy and one plastic cup per color of candy and give each child one straw! On “Go!,” the first player uses their straw to suck one piece of candy to the end of their straw and drop the candy into the plastic cup that matches that color. If it drops too soon or is dropped into the wrong cup, the child has to keep trying and put it into the correct cup. Players cannot move the candy or the cups with their hands. The game continues to the left until the minute is over. The team with the most pieces of candy in the plastic cups wins. See more fun St. Patricks Day inspired Minute to Win it games here!

Crazy Fun St. Patricks Day Games
Shamrock Shake: Before the game, empty a green tissue box for each player and tape a pair of pantyhose on it so that you can basically tie the tissue box to your waist.
Players must put 20 green ping pong balls inside of the tissue box then tie the tissue box around their waist. Then as soon as the timer starts, players must shake their hips and do a “shamrock shake” to be the first one to get all of the balls out.
Peppermint Patty Party Game: Super simple, yet fun at the same time. You need a bunch of Peppermint Patty candies. Do not unwrap them! Set the timer for one minute and see how many you can stack before the timer goes off! The winner gets to keep them all! I’m just kidding, that’s a lot of candy though you can include some of the candy mixed into your party treats.
Cabbage Crawl: Tape a long piece of tape across one side of the room and then another one on the other side of the room. On the one side of the room, put one head of cabbage for each team.
Players must get down on their hands and knees and push their heads of cabbage to the other side of the room using just their head, crawling on their hands and knees. The first player to have their cabbage cross the finish line wins.
Guess Who, What and Where… These Party Games are too FUN!
Who’s the Leprechaun: Are you going to be “It” or will you be the Leprechaun? One player is chosen to be “It” and that person needs to exit the room. The remaining party guests choose someone to be the Leprechaun. Then, the “It” player comes back into the room. The Leprechaun starts doing an Irish dance move, like a beat, cut or lift and the other party guests need to imitate the moves of the Leprechaun. The “It” player then needs to figure out who the Leprechaun is.
St. Patricks Day Jeopardy: This one requires a bit of research and planning in advance, but if your friends are huge Jeopardy fans, just make up your Irish version. Create categories like History, Literature, Music, Pop Culture, Catch Phrases, etc., all with an Irish theme.
It’s Not Easy Being Green: Find as many green items of clothing as you can and put them in a bucket for each team.
Have players stand on one side of the room and place the bucket of clothes on the other side of the room.
Players must either hop like a frog or if you want to use two players, must play leapfrog from their side of the room to the bucket on the other side. When they reach the bucket, they must put on one item of clothing and hop back.
Whoever puts on the most items in the minute wins!
