Saint Patrick’s Day is officially a week away. Typically we don’t get into Saint Patrick’s Day over here. This year, I can’t help getting caught up in all of the fun Saint Patrick’s Day crafts and food showing up on Pinterest. Considering that my husband is part Irish and there are so many cute ideas out there, it’s hard to consider not celebrating this year. Last weekend while shopping my mom and I even found Baby B this onesie to rock for the holiday. Unfortunately they didn’t have anything cute in Little Man’s size.
Outside of the traditional Saint Patrick’s Day food, there have been some delicious looking recipes that have popped up this year. I might have to dig in and actually make something this year.
Saint Patrick’s Day Treats
I ran across these Guinness Cupcakes With Baileys Frosting a few weeks ago and it is safe to say I cannot stop thinking about them. Typically I’m not a fan of Guinness, but when chocolate or Baileys is involved… I’m sold. Not interested in the Baileys? Check out these Death By Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes. They also look AMAZING.
Moving on to some kid friendly ideas…
I love the idea of this Leprechaun Popcorn. We go through so much popcorn in our house on a regular basis this would be such a fun way to change it up. The St. Patrick’s Day Trail Mix would be a great grab and go snack for a kid’s lunch to celebrate the holiday.
I don’t think I’ve ever met a kid who doesn’t like Rice Krispy Treats so add in the Lucky Charms marshmellows and you have a win in my book.
Saint Patrick’s Day Crafts
Crafts with kids are so much fun, but definitely don’t happen enough in our house. Little Man is just getting to the age where he will happily sit down and color for an hour or gets excited to paint. We might have to break out a craft or two in the next week.
These handprints look adorable and come with some other Saint Patrick’s Day craft ideas as well. Little Man would be so incredibly excited about these Marshmallow Shamrocks. He is all about trying new things and these would be a lot of fun even if they are a little bit messy.
Jumping back to the handprint theme, you can break out a whole bunch of colors and make some Handprint Rainbows with a pot of gold at the end.
When in doubt, just make some St. Patrick’s Day Slime. Not only is it fun for all ages, but what could go wrong?
How are you celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day?
