Unicorn Ideas And Activities

Raise your hand if you love unicorns and love unicorn ideas for the classroom! I mean, who doesn’t?! They’re fun and happy and make everything better. I love using unicorns in the classroom because the kids love them! Did you know that National Unicorn Day is celebrated on April 9? Here are some ideas for unicorns in the classroom…

Unicorn Ideas: Literacy

For National Unicorn Day, we read Thelma The Unicorn and have some great discussions about the story elements and the importance of being you and being happy with who you are!

And we graph whether we like unicorns or not. And it’s unanimous.

We also have Read It Up! How To Catch A Unicorn! My class LOVES the “How To Catch” books so we have been adding them all to our classroom library!

Unicorn Ideas: Math

We found these unicorn cutouts at Dollar Tree, so we’re using them a lot.

unicorn activities and ideas for counting

For this counting game, we write numbers on the cutouts, and the students use mini-erasers from Target to practice counting and one-to-one correspondence.

This rainbows and unicorns counting game use an inflatable rainbow drink holder, pom-poms, and number cards.

This unicorn painting is one of my favorites because it uses their feet! Paint the feet white. Then add a rainbow mane, a golden horn, and glitter

YES! PAINT THEIR FEET! It’s hilarious. And it’s a great bonding experience.
