Around this time of year, everyone seems to get a little green
regardless of your actual ethnic background. In the spirit of St.
Pat, I collected some stellar pins to help create a little
Leprechaun luck for you and your little ones!
pin boasts "easy" crafts for kids and anything that runs with a
theme and seems simple is perfect in my book. You can also check
out this massive
100-item compilation that covers everything from snacks to
crafts to themed learning activities for your kids (whether you are
a teacher or a parent). These clover
canvases can be utilized as a craft and then later displayed as
art. I also stumbled across this handprint
leprechaun and thought it was the most darling thing I had ever
This healthy rainbow
snack is great for an after-school treat left by a little
Leprechaun. I made this a few years ago for a family party and it
was a rousing success! (Not to mention the candies at the end were
a great incentive to eat the fruit...) Leprechaun
M&M Hats, anyone? These rainbow
skittles bottles would also make great gifts to pass out during
a party or classroom activity. I also love the idea of taking
something simple like a muffin and making it something
special like a clover. This makes for a great snack, but also
fitting for this time of year. You can even pack lunch to
be a bit more green.
Looking to make your life even more green? Check out this entire
pin (and post) about making a St. Patrick's Day Bash fit
extra special. She even includes a Shamrock Hunt which would be
perfect to have the kids play while waiting for your Corned Beef
and Cabbage to finish up! All things orange and green are the theme
of this Shamrockin'
Tablescape and with printables, you can create something to
give a finishing touch to the occasion.
