What are some fun little kids activities for St. Patricks Day?
We always celebrate by eating the traditional food, and decorating cookies, but what are some St. Patricks day activities I can do with my small children?
EnjoyUtah:Make a leprechaun out of a toilet paper roll. Super easy, super cute, and super fun!
Alyssa:I have a friend who does a little treasure hunt for her kids in the morning. They follow little green leprechaun feet throughout the house to different clues that lead them to a little St. Patty's treasure (chocolate gold, a little toy, coloring books, etc.)
All the clues include stuff that is green. Like green milk, green toilet bowl water, etc. Just something fun and exciting for the kids!
sunshinemommy:Here is an excellent list of activities to do on St. Patricks day.
hopefulmom:There's the easy stuff, like wearing green and eating a green breakfast (like pancakes, or having green milk in Lucky Charms). You can also bake with your kids (and of course, make everything green). And there are lots of ideas online. There was an article on Family Share recently about Mom Magic, and the author reminded us that all the magic of holidays usually comes from the efforts of mom, so use what resources you have and try to make things fun, but not overwhelming for you! I've attached some sites you can check out to get some ideas.
