15 + St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Speech & Language! {and Some Just for FUN!}

Well..this is crunch week people. We move onto our new home this coming weekend and I need to pack this house up! That means…my posts may be a little light the next couple weeks. In the mean time….I know St. Patrick’s day is JUST around the corner! So I have gathered up over 15 St. Patrick’s Day Activities for speech and language for you all and have them HERE! And if that isn’t enough, I’ve also linked up some further inspiration for you!

15 St

Being Irish myself, I just love this holiday. Working with little ones, I have two books I love to use both in therapy and with my own children, The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day and There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover! Last year I wrote a few posts using these two books and even have a couple freebies! Click on the image below and it will take you to the post (the first two are FREE printables!)
