St. Patrick’s Day Fun
Make St. Patrick’s Day fun for the whole family! Celebrate the luck of the Irish with games, crafts and delicious treats. Check out some of our celebratory ideas for you and your little one below and be sure to share your own traditions and ideas in the comments!
Get your little one excited with a treasure hunt. Hide gold coins (chocolate filled or not) around your house or yard. Lead your little one to the little pots of gold with clues and hints. If your kids are old enough, write out the clues otherwise play the guessing game to steer them in the right direction.
If you’re feeling crafty, make a hand print rainbow with your little one. This craft is fun for everyone and helps commemorate the holiday for years to come. This rainbow can be done a few ways; the first is by placing your child’s hand in paint, making each layer of the rainbow from a bunch of hand prints or even by helping them draw each layer of the rainbow.
Another fun way is to trace your little one’s hand on colored paper, cut out the hand and repeat. This version is great if you have multiple children because the different hand sizes add a unique flair to the rainbow. In addition, you can label each hand with the child’s name. Be sure to use all of the colors of the rainbow for this one!
For a sweet treat, put a spin on traditional sugar cookies by transforming them into Shamrock cookies! After using a shamrock cookie cutter and baking these lucky shamrocks, you and your little one can decorate the cookies with green icing and sprinkles. Enjoy!
Another fun way to celebrate the holiday with your little one is with these St Patty’s Day printables from our friends at Kaboose! Enjoy games, puzzles and coloring pages for hours of St. Patrick’s Day fun.
