This kit includes everything you need to implement the magical shrinking hat project in your classroom or home during the St. Patrick's Day holiday. Lucky the Leprechaun is a game changer for St. Patrick's Day in the classroom. He believes more in magic than mischief.
The directions for this project can be located at my blog:, but are also included within this kit for you to readily have forever.
It is an amazing project that students NEVER forget. The legend of the shrinking hats(made up and written by me with 2 versions- one for teachers and one for parents) , a letter from Lucky, a scavenger hunt type secret message left by Lucky, as well as some writing activities. Your students will be mesmerized by this activity and it will product some amazing creative writing because of it.
I have also added a new word scavenger hunt that will tell the children what to do with the lucky rocks that Lucky can leave under their shrunken hats in the morning! Including a label for "Lucky's Magic Solution" which fizzes the rocks and transforms them into gold with his magic! A poem and label for magic leprechaun powder (white pistachio pudding powder) that magically turns into a delicious green snack when you add milk. These easy, magical activities will be sure to give your students a magical day they will never forget. You NEED this kit to make your students' March 17th so special year after year!
