St. Patrick's Day Treasure Hunt

I painted these little rocks gold to make them look like golden nuggets so we could go on a treasure hunt today for preschool. We hid some outside and some inside and we went a searching. We talked about luck today and leprachauns and green and pots of gold and Ireland......After we got done with our treasure hunt we counted out our gold nuggets onto sheets of paper with circles drawn on them so we could work on our one-to-one correspondance while counting. At the end, every child got to take equal gold nuggets home. The great thing about this activity is that it could last all day by re-hiding and re-counting...seriously children LOVE this type of game and it's educational also!!
Happy Hiding!
