StPattysDay Fun Ideas to Celebrate Saint Patricks Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is here! It’s a wonderful time to spend with your children, and presents itself as a perfect opportunity to teach them the basic history of the holiday, while enjoying time together as you create festive Springtime treats and work on craft projects. Here are a few of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day themed recipes and art projects that we’ve come across:

- Pot-of-Gold Four-Leaf Clover Toast, or Four-Leaf Clover French Toast, are both adorable, festive breakfast ideas for St. Patrick’s Day found on Spoonful.com. These recipes are very simple, requiring only a few key ingredients, as well as a four-leaf clover cookie cutter. Add a glass of milk colored with green food coloring for an additional fun surprise!

- Refine your little ones’ fine motor skills by making homemade play-doh with them, dyed in festive shades of green, perfect for the holiday. Follow the recipe found on Modern Parents Messy Kids, and simply use Green Lime JELL-O and additional green food coloring to reach the perfect hue. Best of all — this play-doh is safe and non-toxic, in case of accidental ingestion.

- Add green food coloring to pancake or waffle batter for a fun surprise.

- Make milkshakes in a shamrock hue using green mint ice cream. If your family isn’t a fan of mint, then simply subsitute vanilla ice cream with a few drops of green food coloring. Top with whipped cream and green sprinkles!

- Encourage your kids to drink more water by making Pot-of-Gold-at-the-end-of-the-Rainbow colored ice cubes. Simply fill ice cube trays with water and a few drops of food coloring in green, yellow, purple, blue, and red. Freeze and place into their water (if age-appropriate) to make drinking water more fun.

- Give your little girls a Saint Patrick’s Day manicure! Paint her nails white nailpolish. While they are still wet, sprinkle a little bit of green or rainbow glitter on top, and seal with a clear top coat. Make sure she is able to sit still long enough for them to fully dry!

- Put a Saint Patrick’s Day spin on traditional Rice Krispie’s treats by stirring in green food coloring and green M&M’s.

- Create Saint Patrick’s Day (or Springtime-themed) sand art! Purchase colored sand from the craft store in shades of green or rainbow colors, along with glitter in matching hues. Allow children to use a funnel to fill empty glass jars or bottles in layers with each color of sand/glitter. Use a pencil or wooden skewer to push the layers of sand together, creating unique designs.

Also, don’t forget that any holiday is incomplete without a bow to match the season! Here are some of our favorites in shades of green:
