Leprechaun Garden Scavenger Hunt 🌈

Bring Leprechaun Magic to Your Garden: Create a magical atmosphere by organizing a garden scavenger hunt to find sneaky leprechauns. Craft or purchase small leprechaun figurines (Dollar Tree has little fairy gnomes) and hide them with some gold at the end of the scavenger hunt.

Tips for a Successful Hunt:

  • Encourage creativity and imagination in the search.

  • Go along with your child, these clues do not have to be exact - the main point is to explore the garden, get outside, and have fun!

  • At the end, place some gold coins along with a little leprechaun.

Clues: You can print these clues or create your own. Scroll down for clues.

Clue #1: The Starting Point "Begin your quest where the sun's rays dance, in the place where flowers bloom and butterflies prance. Look for a spot that's green and bright, the first clue awaits in the soft daylight."

Clue #2: Where Rainbows Touch the Ground "Follow the colors that paint the sky, where rainbows touch the ground, oh my! In the corner where hues unite, your clue awaits, shining so bright."

Clue #3: Under the Tall Guardian Tree "Under the branches of a guardian tall, the leprechaun left a clue for all. A tree that stands proud, with leaves that sway, find your next hint and continue the play."

Clue #4: Among the Blooming Clovers "Where clovers grow in patches fair, seek the leprechaun hiding there. In a bed of green, both big and small, find the next clue, and you'll stand tall."

Clue #5: At the Foot of the Rainbow Arch "Your journey's end is drawing near, where the rainbow's end is crystal clear. At its base, a pot of gold does gleam, the leprechaun's final clue, a dream."


May your St. Patrick's Day be filled with joy, laughter, and magic. Happy hunting! 🍀💫
