I have been so caught up in my excitement over spring break that I hadn’t even been thinking about St. Patrick’s Day! Growing up, every “holiday” in my house was a big deal and we had different traditions and activities for different holidays. I have tried to do the same for my kids, but I admit that St. Patrick’s Day always seems to sneak up on me!
If it has snuck up on you, too, here are some fun ideas from around the blogosphere to entertain your kids!
One of my personal favorites was this idea for a leprechaun-themed scavenger hunt from Green Lily Designs.
Green mashed potatoes – have a little fun with your kids while getting them to eat some “good” stuff, too. This green mashed potatoes recipe from The Thrifty Gourmet includes peas instead of food coloring! This one from Chaya’s Comfy Cook uses broccoli!
Paper Bag Leprechaun Puppet – Here’s another one from Free Kid Crafts. My kids are totally going to love this one. Needed supplies include a brown (I guess you could use white, too) lunch bag, scissors, glue, construction paper, wiggle eyes, and crayons.
