St. Patrick’s Day is another great opportunity to enjoy quality time with your family. As traditions for this holiday tend to be more versatile, you can do whatever you want to make the day more fun. The following crafts, snacks and activities are packed with St. Patrick’s Day goodies — rainbows, leprechauns, clovers and plenty of green — to get kids of all ages involved. They’re perfect for families looking to spend some quality time together.
Children love all things bright and colorful, and they also love cake! The two are combined in this Rainbow Cupcake recipe by Spoonful, which you can enjoy making and eating together as a family.
Gold Coin Banana Chips
Every St. Patrick’s Day needs a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. You can make your own edible gold coins using this healthy banana chip idea from Artsy Momma. It’s simple enough even for parents in a rush.
St. Patrick’s Day is, of course, another excuse to dress up. Get the kids involved to complete their costumes with a bright orange leprechaun beard using the instructions from No Time for Flash Cards.
Clover Leaf Lei
Bring yourself good luck and add some green to your outfit with this Clover Leaf Lei activity from Simple as That. Quick and easy to make even for young children, this is the perfect group or solo craft.
Lure Lucky the Leprechaun
From Modern Parents Messy Kids, this game uses entirely recycled materials. This idea gives you the chance to get your creative juices flowing when you come up with original ideas to catch Lucky the Leprechaun.
Of course, no St. Patrick’s Day would be complete without lots of green.
