St. Patrick's Day with the Letter Gg for Gold and Green

Children decorate the letter Gg with green grass and gold glitter and represent the number 5 with green and gold coins. Combine both projects and you'll have the necessary ingredients for an awesome and educational St. Patrick's Day bulletin board! 

Letter Gg Craft: Green Grass, Gold Glitter, and Glue Activities

Kindergarten Common Core Standard:

Foundational Skills: Phonics and Word Recognition
Rf.K.3a Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary sound or many of the most frequent sounds for each consonant.

What you need:

Letter Gg Pattern printables
Green construction paper
Shredded green paper or green Easter grass
Gold glitter
Chart paper
Black marker

Small glue bottles


What you do:

Preschool Activities: 

Print the Letter Gg Pattern printables and make a copy of each for each child. Cut out the letters and glue them to green construction paper backgrounds. Before beginning the craft project, review the letter Gg shapes and sounds. Explain that children will decorate their upper-and lowercase letters with green grass, gold glitter, and glue. Write each word on chart paper and ask children what they notice (each word begins with the letter Gg). Read the list of words together--green, grass, gold, glitter, glue--emphasizing the intial sound of each one. 

Preschool Activities: 

Give each child a set of traced letters and a small glue bottle. Have children use their index fingers to trace the letter shapes. Explain that they will also practice making the shapes using the glue bottles. Show children how to gently squeeze their bottles while tracing inside the letter shapes. Then, have children rub the glue with their fingers to cover all of the space inside the traced letters.

Preschool Activities: 
Preschool Activities: 

Let children sprinkle gold glitter over their letters and shredded pieces of green paper cut into small pieces.

Preschool Activities: 

When the letters are completely dry, cut them out and use them as the green grass for a related bulletin board.

Bulletin Board Idea: St. Patrick's Day Pots of Gold on Grass

Preschool Activities: 

Combine the Letter Gg Craft and the Number 5 Pots of Gold by stapling each child's pot on top of his/her green grass and gold glitter letters. Arrange the pots of gold on grass on a bulletin board. Children can help with the arrangement by deciding which pots should go together in rows or columns depending on how the number 5 is represented (i.e. pots with two gold coins and three green coins go in one column etc.).
