5 Fun Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day


Kids love celebrating and creating traditions – so why not plan some fun activities for St. Patricks day – you still have plenty of time with these simple and easy options to make St. Patricks Day extra special.

Surprise family friends with a card

This “Super Lucky To Know You” free printable notecard is adorable and perfect for letting someone know they’ve made a positive impact on your family!

It’s available in two sizes and would be great to mail or hand deliver. You could include a handwritten note or adorn with gold foil wrapped candy or other fun accents.  Perfect to send to school for a teacher!

Treasure hunt

Kids will love to search for the “pot of gold” in this super easy and fun treasure hunt! All the work is done for you! The free printable includes all the “lucky” clues and as well as a “treasure” bag topper to staple on the top of the reward (a bag of goodies like gold foil wrapped Rolos or rainbow Skittles). Or create your own pot of gold with a cute Dollar Store pail or basket.

Green puppy chow

A fun twist on a basic snack!  I love that this one uses Young Living Spearmint Vitality oil – yum!!! You can grab some Young Living oils here – you know I love them!  Adding real flavors to food is a passion of mine for sure.

Explore the Irish Culture

Do your kids know who St. Patrick was or why we celebrate him? Share the story with them, then further explore the culture by serving a traditional Irish meal.

Check out this link on the History Channel – or grab this book to read aloud as a family.


Enjoy some Irish Specialties!

How about a delicious pot of Irish Stew to warm the hearts of your family and add a side of Traditional Irish Soda Bread?!!

Since St. Patricks Day is on a Saturday you could easily make dinner preparation part of the fun and involve everyone.

Rainbow crafts

This Fruit Loop rainbow is a lot of fun for younger kids! They love sorting the Fruit Loop colors and arranging them on the rainbow.

And I love the rainbow melted crayon canvas ideas on this page for older kids!

You can make it as simple or challenging as your child wants, and they have a bright and colorful piece of homemade artwork to hang in their room when you’re done.


So, what is on the top of your list to share St. Patrick’s Day with your family?
