7 FUN ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

While I'm Waiting...7 FUN ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
With St. Patrick's Day less than three weeks away, I wanted to share a few ideas to help you get ready for a day of FUN!  Shamrocks, the color green, and rainbows?  Oh, you know, just a few of my FAVORITE things! :)  Here are 7 FUN ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

 Start the day with a Lucky Breakfast!

A few games of bingo is always a FAVORITE at our house!

Rainbow wrapped marshmallows?  Yes, please!

You could even grow your own shamrocks! (I'm pretty sure I have a few of these little cauldrons left over from Halloween!)

St. Patrick's Day is the perfect day to show your neighbor how lucky you feel that they live next door!  These cute tags will help you deliver just the perfect little gift!  This is definitely my FAVORITE!

Scavenger hunt.  Need I say more?!  I know for a fact that this would be our kiddos' #1!

What about SHAM-ROCKing someone?  Get your kids involved and chose another family to secretly surprise!  This would definitely be a fun tradition to start as a family!

Feeling lucky?  Which one is your FAVORITE?  I'm glad I've got a few weeks to get my ideas together!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day and a weekend filled with all your FAVORITES!

Gig 'em and God bless!

  2. The clover cauldrons are so cute!!! Love those! I used to regularly Irish dance, so St. Patrick's Day was our BIG day each year-it usually involved being in a parade, going to a couple of nursing homes, and one year we even danced outside of a museum downtown! In the years since I stopped attending that dance school, I haven't done quite as much on St. Patrick's Day, but I always make sure to bake some Irish Soda bread to eat with butter and jam :) Yum!

  10. These are such cute ideas! I usually do not do anything for St. Pattie's day. I've been thinking lately that I would try to make a bigger deal out of holidays in our homeschool. I think the kids need that. Thanks for the ideas!

    1. I know mine love it just because it's unexpected and a little out of the ordinary. I love holidays like Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day to get to do a little extra something for them. I bet your kiddos would get a kick out of green milk or some Lucky Charms for breakfast! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you back soon!
