How to set up your St. Patrick’s Day Hundred Chart game
You’ll need a few supplies for this fun game.
First, you’ll need to print a copy of your Pot of Gold Hundred Chart. You can find it at the link below.
If you plan on using this often (or in the classroom setting), laminate your hundred chart for durability.
Finally, you’ll need 1 or 2 dice and some game pieces. We just used coins, but you can use anything. Gold coins or St. Patrick’s Day mini erasers would also be fun.
How to play
You can play either a one person game or a two person game. The directions are below.
One person game
Start with your game piece on the number 1 square.
Roll the dice and move the number or spaces indicated. Encourage your child to use their addition skills to add the two dice together and also add that number to the square they are on to find out which square they should move to.
Keep playing until you reach 100. You’ve found the pot of gold!
Two person game
The two person game is very similar to the one person game. Except you’ll be racing each other to see who gets to the pot of gold first.
For this version, use two different game pieces. We were using coins, so we used a penny and a nickle.
Play the game the same as the one person version except have the two players take turns throwing the dice and moving.
The first person to reach the the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in square 100 wins.
