No-Prep Therapy Activity: Find the Lucky Clovers!
Blair Bradley, M.S., CCC-SLP
St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, celebrates the life of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick was an important saint who established many churches and schools throughout Ireland. He is credited with using objects such as the three-leaf clover in his speeches. St. Patrick’s Day has evolved into a celebration of all things Irish, including clovers, leprechauns, and the search for the pot of gold. Use this easy, no-prep therapy activity to target a variety of speech and language goals while searching for the lucky clovers on the activity sheet.
