St. Patty’s Day Bingo

There are plenty of print cards online with a St. Patrick’s Day theme for you to print out or design your own. Play the game traditionally, or you can have whoever lands on a special symbol, such as a rainbow, pot of gold, or leprechaun, get a prize. This is a wonderful and creative way to spend the holiday. 

Roll a Leprechaun

This one is sure to be a favorite. You can search out printable sheets spelling out a St. Patrick’s Day word, such as leprechaun. Each letter is associated with a number or pair of numbers on a set of dice. The first one to spell the word gets a prize. 

Guess the Rainbow

This game will surely be a hit because everyone gets a chance to enjoy some Skittles. Simply hand a bag out to each player and assign them a color. Next, have them guess how many of that color are in the bag. The winner gets a prize. 


Select a few words and phrases that teams can act out for a lively game of charades. It’s a good idea to set aside a few prizes to encourage participation. This game is a wonderful way for the entire family to enjoy this Irish holiday.

St. Patrick’s Day Trivia

Depending on the age of your children, you can even get them involved with creating the trivia questions. Alternatively, you can find sites that will generate them for you. You will want a solid selection of questions based around St. Patrick's Day as well as Ireland. This is a great way to have fun and learn while doing so!

Find the Coin

With this game, you need a group of people. Have everyone stand in a circle facing each other. One person secretly has a gold coin. It is up to everyone in the circle to take turns trying to guess who has it. Once the guess is made, the winner gets a prize. 

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, these games will inspire you to have a day of fun!
