St. Patrick’s Day Treats, Crafts & Activities for Kids

There once was an old man from Nantucket…no, wait, that’s not how this is supposed to get started. Green food coloring + cheap beer….um, I guess that won’t fly anymore either. Switching gears to gold-wrapped rolos and rainbow licorice in 3…2…1….

St. Patrick’s Day, FOR KIDS, we’ve got this! Of all the winter holidays, St. Patty’s is certainly the ugly stepsister of the group, but that’s what makes it so much fun. No expectations and no pressure equals a great excuse to do something silly just because. We’ve gathered some great ideas to help you do this, whether you want to bake some pot-o-gold cupcakes or stage your own leprechaun hunt, start here to go green this March!
