Pinterest inspiration for St. Patrick's DayThursday, March 14, 2013
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!
This 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 seen!
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.
