St. Patrick’s Day isn’t too far off. I love the different gross motor games that can be played during St. Patrick’s Day like the Rainbow Relay or the Clover Hop. Then there are those times when you just need something that is fast, effective, and efficient. That’s where these short duration St. Patrick’s Day brain breaks and gross motor moves come in. The brain breaks come with a St. Patrick’s Day theme making it perfect for the entire month of March!
