St. Patrick's Day Fun

I love to do crafts and have special days with the kids, so any holiday that comes around is fun to celebrate! Abby and I did a few small things the past few days to gear up for Saint Patrick's Day:

We made a cute leprechaun hat...which was originally for Tim, but surprisingly, a 9 month old little boy didn't want to wear it. ;)  So Abby styled it while working on her leprechaun face craft. She loves googly eyes and coloring, so this was right up her alley!



I am getting a Shamrock Scavenger Hunt ready to go for St. Pat's Day. I cut out little shamrocks and am going to hide them around the house on green items...a fun way to practice colors with little ones :)
Can you spot all the shamrocks? ;) These are just some of the ones I'm going to hide :)


As for what we are going to wear, Jess made Abby a four leaf clover hair clip last year  - which does double duty for ND fans ;) Jess wrote up a post on how to make it yesterday. It is so cute and pretty easy to make!




We also have a Saint Patrick movie that we'll be watching so we actually learn about the Saint himself on his special day. And of course, we will need some treats to snack on during the movie. I'm thinking we should try some mint puppy chow or Rice Krispie treats with green M&Ms/sprinkles. I typically add food coloring to all our food that day - pancakes, pasta, milk - just to add some fun to our meals :) Do you have any favorite Saint Patrick's Day food?

  1. I love the shamrock scavenger hunt idea! We have had fun eating rainbow jello, painting water color rainbows and wearing lots of green. I'm hoping to make some shamrock sugar cookies and turn some other food green this weekend :)

  3. Such cute ideas! We usually do one craft, but most of my ideas involve food. Haha! I usually make a green jello parfait or green milkshakes for dessert, but this year, I think I'm going to make a green pudding parfait! And, of course, green clover pancakes, green milk, and special treats in my older kids' lunchboxes.

  4. I love the hunt idea! Are there clues involved? Prizes? Or just the fun of the search?

  5. Green milkshakes sound amazing! I'm sure your kids love having those special treats in their lunches :) Sounds fun!!

  6. My daughter is only two, so we're just doing something basic. I'm hiding them and then we're just going room to room and finding them :) If she could read, I'd have fun little clues telling her where to go next! I did find some gold chocolate coins at Dollar Tree so those are the prize at the end of the hunt! :)

  7. I love the idea of a scavenger hunt! I will have to try that out next year :) I think a 2 year old may understand better rather than the 1 year old we have now.


    Thanks for linking up :)
