St Patricks Day Memphis Moms Blog crafts kids

Oh St. Patrick's Day....you either celebrate it or you don't. My husband is almost 100% Irish, so in our family its a fun day to plan and celebrate! If you usually go all out or if you have never celebrated before, I am here with a list of ideas that you can use from sun up to sun down.

How about surprising your kids with some leprechaun footprints on the toilet in the morning?

Feed them a fun breakfast and give them some leprechaun energy that will get them through the day. Don't forget to wear green!

How about packing them a fun St. Patrick's Day lunch? These are super fun!! If you don't like these ideas, you could also pack their lunch with only things that are green. Snap peas, applesauce pouches, cucumber, kiwi, grapes...just use your imagination!

Buy a box of colored ring cereal and let your little ones string it onto a piece of yarn for a fun rainbow necklace.

This is another cute example of handprint art. I don't know about you, but I love anything that has my child's hand prints on it.

Want to incorporate some educational fun into your day? This is a great idea. Hide paper shamrocks all over the house. You can use rhyming words for the kids to match up, sight words that they have to find and or even just write ABC's on them for the toddlers to find and identify. It's a great activity for all ages. Just adapt to fit for your children.
