CELEBRATING ST. PATRICK’S DAY

Part of my switch to more intentional living was to put family events on the calendar to look forward to. It seems that this past year needed a push more than ever as we still find ourselves couped up in the house. Each month, I make sure to plan something fun for the kids whether it’s a “Snow Day” in January or a “First Day of Summer Party” in June.

Check out our ideas on making March 17th stand out in your family!

ST. PATRICK’S DAY IDEAS

1. LOOK FOR 4 LEAF CLOVERS

This is a great one to do at the park! Take your little guys outside and pretend you’re leprechauns looking for 4 leaf clovers. It’s rare but it happens!

2. EAT AN ALL-GREEN MEAL

This one might actually inspire your picky eaters! Round up as many different green foods you can and vote on your favorites.

  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini
  • Celery
  • Salad
  • Grapes
  • Kiwi
  • Cucumber
  • Avocado
  • Keylime Pie
  • Apples
  • Jello

3. WEAR LOTS OF GREEN

Don’t forget to wear something green. Tell the kids they have 5 minutes to put on as many green clothing items they can find. Winner gets a prize!

4. MAKE A RAINBOW CRAFT

There are tons of rainbow craft ideas on Pinterest you can check out here. Other ideas are stringing Fruit Loops to make a necklace, making a rainbow out of PlayDoh, or painting a rainbow picture and adding cotton balls for clouds.

5. PLAY ST. PATRICK’S LAND

Download my “St. Patrick’s Land” board game for a fun family activity! Use coins for playing pieces and a dice to roll.

6. SET A LEPRECHAUN TRAP

These are fun to create with a shoebox and set out the night before St. Patrick’s Day. One year, I even trashed the bathroom with toilet paper and put green food coloring in the toilet to pretend a leprechaun had stopped by. I left chocolate coins in their leprechaun traps too!

7. GO ON A TREASURE HUNT

I loved making treasure hunts when I was a child. Share the joy of treasure-hunting with your kids with this free printable activity I created just for you! Cut up the clues and put them in order around the house. A great prize would be gold coins or a St. Patrick’s themed goodie!

  • Hand your child clue #1
  • #2 Under the couch
  • #3 In the car
  • #4 Kitchen sink
  • #5 Behind a door
  • #6 Under a bed
  • #7 In the shower
  • #8 Under a table (make sure to have a prize!)

8. LISTEN TO IRISH SONGS

Every party’s more fun with a good soundtrack! Make sure to blast some Irish tunes. Here’s a playlist I found on Spotify: Irish Songs
