Leprechan's Gold Addition Game

Here's another quick game we've been playing this week in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

Take two small containers. Place shamrock cards in one and gold coins in the other. (The shamrock cards have green stickers on the back.)

Take out two shamrocks and flip them over. Count the dots and take out the corresponding number of coins for each dot. Add the two numbers together.


This game is quick to set up is a good independent activity.


  1. Love this idea! It could be adapted to just about any season/event

  2. It sure could be adapted. We did a similiar activity for Valentine's day adding hearts!

  3. Very cool. I love the activities that you do with your dd.

  4. Thanks, Deanna! I steal a lot of my ideas from you!!!
