● Take pipe cleaners and create shamrocks out of them (as many as you want students to go fishing for!)
● Let them float in the water, and add your other trinkets to the water if you want.
● Have students make a fishing pole out of a pipe cleaner, or bring in a toy fishing pole if you have one.

I love this classroom game because not only does it incorporate water play for sensory needs in preschoolers, but it can also be made into an activity that students do on their own, or it can be made into a competitive game, where the teacher goes for one color and students go for another. There are so many ways to incorporate this activity into your classroom St. Patrick activities.
