St. Patrick’s Day PE Games: Leprechauns On The Run

Leprechauns On The Run Overview:

-It wouldn’t be a holiday unless there was something “on the run!”

-This time the leprechauns are going to need everyone’s help as they gather their lost coins and avoid the obstacles that come their way 🍀

-This St. Patrick’s Day PE Game can be used as a warm-up activity, a classroom brain break, or as a fun virtual game for online PE.

-If you missed out on Turkeys On The Run, Elves On The Run, or Cupid On The run, you can find the entire holiday series here:

-If you’re looking for more St. Patrick’s Day PE Games, here is the latest addition to the “Find The Gnome” series:


How To Play

-Start by bringing up the video (which can be found below) or you can search for it on YouTube

-There are 3 different levels in Leprechauns On The Run

-Players will follow along and perform the movements as they appear on the screen to avoid the different obstacles

-Each level will increase in difficulty as there will be more obstacles and the speed of the game will get faster

-Before starting each level, there will be a picture showing what obstacles to watch out for and how to avoid them

-Have your leprechaun players work their way through the different levels to help collect the missing gold coins!


Fun Add-ons

-I love talking with each class afterwards to see what everyone thought was the hardest obstacle, the easiest, part they liked the best, etc.

-I also like to include some type of leprechaun hall of fame on the white board. This usually goes to the class that freezes the best and stays frozen when the angry leprechaun appears! 🔍

  1. We did this as part of our St. Patrick’s Day homeschool lesson with our kindergartener and it was so much fun! She loved it and so did my little one (2) who would try to jump and duck whenever I would yell out the actions. We’ll definitely be checking out your other activities and making them part of our homeschool days. Thanks so much!
