Holidays are the perfect time to bring the family together for some memories and some fun! Today’s post provides you with everything you need to pull off a fun and memorable St. Patrick’s Day activity as a couple or for the whole family!

St.Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt

Here is How it Works:

St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt Colorful Clue Bags

Start by printing out these fun clue bags for your hunt! Our talented designer, Crystal Nale from the site A Well Feathered Nest, {check out her awesome site!} created these colorful designs that you can print right onto a paper bag! I printed mine onto White Paper Bags that I bought on Amazon.

Finally, place all the clue bags in the various locations around the home indicated by the clues! Besides the first clue that explains the game it doesn’t matter which order you go in. We tried to keep the clues generic to fit any home!

Set up a clue bag in the following locations of your home:

  • The Fridge
  • Laundry Room
  • Front Door
  • Mailbox
  • Bath Tub
  • Bed
  • Bathroom Sink
  • TV

St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt Final Clue Pot of Gold

Place this sign at the final location of the last clue. I think it would be fun to have a fun St. Patricks Day treat at the end for the family to enjoy! Anything green and delicious will do! We have a 25+ St. Patrick’s Day Treat ideas on our site! I love idea #10 for this scavenger hunt!


When it is time to play, gather your spouse and/or family and present them with the first clue which explains:

Leprechauns have been tiptoeing around, 

Leaving Shamrocks on the ground. 

Following rainbows will not do, 

You must find the clovers and find the clues. 

To get your clue that leads to your pot of gold, 

You must complete the tasks as they unfold.

The clue then sends them to their first location where they race to find the “Lucky You” Clue bags!

St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt Clue Bags Once they have found their location and their clue bag – have them open the bag to reveal the challenge that they must complete before reading their next clue! Each challenge includes an explanation card and some sort of printable to go with the game.
